They emphasize the importance of recognizing one's own belief system and the stories they tell themselves about burnout.

📍 Moving Beyond Victim and Villain Mindsets

Owen explains that individuals often fall into either a victim mindset (blaming external factors) or a villain mindset (self-criticism).

📍 Seeking Support and Guidance

They draw parallels to the hero's journey found in storytelling, where protagonists face challenges with the support of guides and mentors. Similarly, seeking support from others can aid in overcoming burnout and personal struggles.

📍 Conclusion

Owen and Cait wrap up the episode, emphasizing the importance of recognizing one's mental state and choosing to adopt a hero mindset. The hero mindset empowers individuals to take charge of their lives, embrace personal growth, and overcome burnout challenges with determination and support.
