13 Things You Should Give Up If You Want To Be Successful

This is one of my favorite articles.  It embodies the simplicity of be successful yet most of us make it very difficult.  Own and running a business is not easy but it definitely does not need to be as hard as we tend to make.   I was watching a show with my 10-year daughter Myia, there was a couple that liked each other but were I guess kind of uncomfortable and unsure.  She turned to me and said, “mom why are they making it so difficult.”  It was a great observation and lead into a fabulous conversation on how we choose to look at situations, react to them and the importance of communication.

It’s a quick read. If you are all about improving your skills like I am you will enjoy this article.
