On the podcast, I share a personal situation that created a wound that I needed to resolve before being able to move forward in my career.
My healing came from gratitude and forgiveness.
Here are a few steps to take toward overcoming hurts that may be holding you back.
- Be honest with yourself about your wounds.
- Acknowledge the impact they have had on you.
- Realize that you have the ability to choose how to interpret the situation.
- Move on and allow others to move on as well.
- Choose to remember the good in every situation.
Be honest with yourself about your wounds. Acknowledge the impact they have had on you. Realize that you have the ability to choose how to interpret the situation. Move on.
