We climb mountains because once we struggle past all the stones and briars, we gain the confidence to climb another one. From the top, we can see others, some even taller in the distance.

May I suggest this to you for use with your clients and moments when you’re feeling a need for approval

Approval is like an addiction in that the high never lasts very long, and when we seek others' approval, we tend to give control of our lives over to them.

Thanks for all the claps for this one:

Stay in touch.
