Beauty and the Beast Pt. 2: Expanding our Influence by giving Up Control

Whether we find ourselves just starting out in a new role, as new parents, or on another journey, the scope of the world that we understand is never enough for our liking. Like Belle reading her books, we are always dreaming of understanding the world better and making an impact on it. But what if we aren't just like Belle, we are also like Beast and Gaston? Beast comes from influence and control, but he's trapped in a small world, searching for a way to break out through his own abilities. Through Belle's magnanimous character, she teaches Beast that the way to break out of a small world isn't just ravenously consuming information, but by doing something unexpected, by shocking the system. What techniques can we use so that we, like Belle, might set off a chain reaction of transformation in the world around us?
