Be the Threat to Your Threats by Erik Kruger (Tracey Macdonald Publishers)
The reality of life is that you cannot escape threats. Threats to your business, your relationships, your potential, your health. This is an invitation to become a better version of you, says Erik Kruger, author of Dangerous: Be the Threat to Your Threats (Tracey Macdonald Publishers). “How you learn to respond to threats determines the trajectory of your life. If you respond with a lack of force, energy and will, you will most likely end up in a familiar place – survival mode …” writes Kruger. “This in itself isn’t a problem except for the fact that survival mode can become an accepted way of operating in the world. We lose our edge, our fight, our bite.” In Dangerous, Kruger explains how to get out of that mode and truly live. This is an excerpt from his book. Kruger is the founder of Modern Breed, a “specialist workshop and design sprint consultancy, with the explicit intention of modernizing leaders and teams through world-class learning experiences”.
