Matau the Giant - Building Resilience Towards Failure and Rejection - EP 48

I find myself bruised and battered, in a place altogether unfamiliar to me. And then a shocking discovery is made... This week's episode explores the Maori mythology of Matau, a giant, kidnapping, supernatural jerk and the aftermath of his murder. This somehow turns into an exploration of resilience towards failure and rejection, and I dive into some practical tips on building more of it. Fun for the whole family!
