Increasing Courage Good Morning. Yesterday, we focused on the topic of vulnerability. We practiced exposing ourselves to a space where we are accepting of our imperfection, open to feedback, and non-defensive. To sit in this space has been found to increase creativity and to help people to reach personal goals. The more we practice authenticity […]

What’s the Most Important Thing? Good Morning. We have discussed the concept of intention before. It is the idea of using the wisest part of yourself to ask yourself what is most important? It sets a course for where we wish to go with ourselves. But the tricky thing is that we often get obsessed […]
