How much power do you REALLY have to change things in your business and life? Do you ever stop to ask yourself this question? So often we feel stuck in certain areas of our business and unable to move. It can even feel paralyzing sometimes when our fear gets the better of us.
And honestly, sometimes we are stuck and the things outside of ourselves aren’t cooperating.
This contemplation always leads me to the serenity prayer…"grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
But how do we know the difference?
How do we know when it is time to accept and when it is time to fight? How do we know when we need more courage or more surrender?
There, of course, is no black-and-white answer, but I do find that often we need to skill build in both areas...courage and surrender.
This is true in life AND in business.
Most people are more skilled in one area than another. So my suggestion is to skill build in the area you are most weak. If you are better at surrendering and more often feel powerless, you need to skill build courage. If you are better at courage and more often fighting and pushing, you need to skill build surrender.
Which skill could you use more of in your life right now? <3
