I was chatting with a friend a few months ago and she was facing some big challenges that really scared her. First, she was in a job working more than 90 hours a week. Second, she had lost all of her savings fighting a lawsuit that had damaged her reputation tremendously.
In the midst of all of this, she was offered an opportunity to be part of a startup team for a very exciting venture. You might think, “what does she have to lose since her finances are gone?” For her, the idea of one more potentially risky challenge felt like way too much.
After we discussed things, my friend decided to find out more about the new venture before offhandedly rejecting it. That took a lot of courage and I admire her for that.
So if you are facing yet another challenge, pause and see where you can take action – even a little bit.
Have a great day,
