26th July saw JCI Manchester's presdient Simon Anderson deliver a breakfast breifin on how the 4 horesmen of Disappointment, Disillusionment, Discomfort and Dismay can be your greatest teacher if you let.

Attended by a total of 10 people the audience were given an overview of the human psyche and why we naturally avoid the above and in place of it seek pleasure. It included a bit of Freud, a bit of Nietzsche and a bit of Maslow.

What the talk argued was that these 4 things are a natural part of life and should be seen as just as positive as when you have a success. To quote Connor McGreggor - 'You win or you learn...' That was the general jist of it. 

The concluding section gave the participants a frame work and philosophy to appraoch these challenges in the future all based on Simon's experience in starting (and closing down) a business, muay thai fighting and his recent qualification in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

It was a very enjoyable talk and one that we hear will be duplicated for JCI Leeds!

Our next breakfast event is a Positve Body Image Panel event that will be held on the 30th August - venue to be confiirmed!

Look forward to seeing you there!
