Charting Your Own Path
When you chart your own path, it does not always mean taking the road less traveled, but being intentional in the path you choose. There are 5 key steps to consider when Charting Your Own Path: 1) Dare to Dream, 2) What’s your Role – Driver or Passenger (Both are needed), 3) Dead End or On Ramp (How to tell the difference?), 4) No More Martyrs Here (The importance of self-care), and 5) How Do You Talk About Your Path? (You Control the Narrative)
