We also gain an understanding of the thoughts of others and this leads us to a more inclusive approach.
In the first part, we show how our mindset and our relationship with each other affects our ability to reach others. An approach characterized by cooperation and a positive mindset makes it easier to reach others. Our mindset is something that we ourselves can influence even if that can be challenging
