Don’t sell out
The urge to change can be so strong that we will act impulsively to solve a problem. Avoid quick fixes they will only separate you from your personal power and leave you demoralized when the results do not last. The aim here is empowerment, that leads to real growth. Seek to not only solve these problems but also out growing them. This means developing a long-term vision that will draw out higher quality solutions and address the heart of the matter. This is how true power is harnessed by mustering up the courage to try new things, to learn, apply and adapt.
