Thriving Mindset




Originally written to accompany an evening workshop offered along with the Fire Service Warrior – Fundamentals Class, “The Thriving Mindset” is a brief essay synthesizing Chris’ work on human performance and thriving. It is a cornerstone document in bridging the Fire Service Warrior Ethos and the work of Adult Academy.

“Whether in sport, work, or our day to day lives with family and friends, I believe human beings are meant to thrive. Thriving is progress towards, or realizing, a goal despite or because of circumstances; it is how we describe someone who is flourishing. I believe that a thriving mindset, a desire and intent to flourish regardless the circumstances, would elevate the experience of all of our lives.” – Christopher Brennan
