The 5 Tools to help you find courage and creativity with Phil Stutz
On today’s episode, I speak with Phil Stutz, co-author of the book The Tools: Transform your Problems into Courage, Confidence, and Creativity and Coming Alive.
As a 17-year-old college sophomore, Phil found himself as the sounding board for two guys who were fighting over a girl. Without doing much more than listening, Phil watched the trouble resolve itself in front of his eyes. As the guys walked away laughing with each other, Phil knew life had spoken to him and he had found his calling.
Phil received his MD from New York University. After working as a prison psychiatrist on Rikers Island and then in private practice in New York, he moved to sunny Los Angeles where he has been practicing since 1982.
We talk about the following and so much more:
✅ What the 5 tools are and how people can use them to live a better life
✅ How many times does it take for the tools to really stick and work
✅ Why so many of us are interested in staying in our comfort zones, rather than moving through the pain?
✅ The maze, the spiral and how to get unstuck
The book Tools offers five life tools or techniques to unlock human potential. By using these tools, people can solve problems by using tools to connect with a world of limitless forces. Please note that Phil was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2012 if some parts seem unclear.
