Strategy number 1: Be realistic about change. Change will happen. Create ways to work with intention. Always be scanning for new, better ways to work and create new understandings.
Strategy number 2: Be open to feedback and create the place for dialogue. We’ve all heard misery loves company, but staying around those with that mindset can bring us down. You are who you hang out with! Seek feedback from those that have been down your road. those on the same journey and those that will always love ya! (Make sure those that will always love ya will be those that give you honest feedback, all to often close friends or family give you a pat on the back without offering new perspectives or a view from “the outside looking in.”
Strategy number 3: Don’t wrap your heart around one central idea. Be flexible, is the key to overcome challenges and know that all roads to success never run smooth, especially if you allow those brain pathways to become ruts.
