Never, ever give your power away to another. That’s some really critical wisdom for our business and our personal lives. Yet how often do we give away our power, without realizing we are slipping down that slope?Comfort Vs Possibilities
Maybe you are going about your days engaging in the same activities, done the same way, day after day. Maybe it is like your favorite warm, cozy chair on a rainy day – where you are safe, relaxed and secure. It could also be the overwhelming work life you have, yet the familiarity of it keeps you there. For me it was a great job that I had been in for years and the house I owned in the town I grew up in.
