Stockdale Paradox - Hello PositivityHello Positivity

The Stockdale Paradox

James Stockdale was a U.S Navy Vice Admiral and aviator, awarded the Medal of Honour in the Vietnam War, during which he was a prisoner of war for over seven years. In his memoirs he recorded the dark details of his torture during his time as a POW. He was asked how he mentally survived during that time, when he didn't know if he would ever get out alive. He replied: "I never lost faith in the end of the story. I never doubted not only that I would get out, but also that I would prevail in the end and turn the experience into the defining event of my life, which, in retrospect, I would not trade.” This became known as the Stockdale Paradox; Having and unwavering faith that you can and will prevail in the end regardless of the difficulties you are facing. Whilst having the strength to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality.

Why we suffer from Issues & how SFH can help

Why do we suffer from issues like anxiety, anger, depression? How are these created? How do we move forward in our lives, free from these issues? We have two mindsets – the intellectual mindset which is rational and always sees things with a balanced perspective, and an emotional primitive mindset also known as our "flight fight freeze" response. When we are feeling anxious or depressed, we respond to situations using this emotional primitive mind. So what can we do about it.
