Defending your peace against the lies of negativity

The other day after a great event with entrepreneur friends and peers I felt oddly oppressed by my thoughts and feelings. It started with judgment and comparison as I began listening to the thoughts of inferiority that arise from what is clearly still some attachment of my self-worth to the amount of business success I Read More…

The pitfalls of ‘setting our mind’…and what to do instead

The other day I wrote about a ‘subtle lie that destroys our peace’. The belief that I will only feel good about myself if I accomplish my goal.
