Investigating the obstacles in our way, we often find that it’s sometimes our approach keeping us back. Our approach to handling troublesome people, to criticism, to people who seem to do our jobs better than us…These things sting our ego. They call forth our inner knights to defend the citizens of our precious identity.
Lucky for us, our approach is mailable. We can ask ourselves, ‘what do I normally do here?’ consider the usual outcomes, and imagine what might happen if we behaved differently.
Although it’s never easy to do the opposite of what we usually do, it’s certainly possible.
Who we are is not just how we are usually.
