UE #53: The Winner Effect, Power, Self-Esteem
In this episode, I explore the 'Winner Effect', a phenomenon where individuals are more likely to win after a history of winning. I discuss the emotional impact of winning and losing, and the role of status games. I warn of the potential negative impacts of unchecked winning and power. I also suggest strategies like offering self-compassion, noticing our wins, reconsidering our hierarchies, and shifting from a competitive to a collaborative mindset. I emphasize the importance of staying humble and viewing setbacks as opportunities for growth, ensuring power doesn't lead to problematic behaviors.
