Hogwart’s favourite half-giant teaches us three important life lessons throughout the course of the seven books.
What are they? Loyalty? Being a good father figure? Well, although these are traits that many people think of, I believe they are least interesting for our purposes here.
Instead, let’s talk about:
#1 Building Better Boundaries. Hagrid is an anti-teacher in this respect – he shows us what happens when we fail to build healthy boundaries. This is apparent not just in his naïve love of all things monster, but in the varied and horribly hilarious examples I give from the whole series.
#2 Acknowledge your strengths. We all know Hagrid is physically strong, but he is more resilient and mentally tough than anyone – especially Hagrid – gives him credit for. I discuss exactly how, and how to start giving YOURSELF credit.
In this episode you will discover:
*The difference between taking responsibility and taking the blame
*Some powerful questions to ask yourself if you feel people are asking too much of you
*The very rare ability Hagrid shares with Harry, Dumbledore, Sirius and Hermione
