Warning: Here are the 3 P’s that Keep You Stuck and Miserable

March 21, 2024

Adam Grant shares the 3 major obstacles that prevent people from overcoming setbacks in his book, Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy.

“After spending decades studying how people deal with setbacks, psychologist Martin Seligman found that three P’s can stunt recovery:

(1) personalization – the belief that we are at fault;

(2) pervasiveness – the belief that an event will affect all areas of our life; and

(3) permanence – the belief that the aftershocks of the event will last forever.”
