Last night I hosted my MASTERMIND and we talked about some of the things we've been going through this month. An underlying theme was overwhelm and remaining stuck in place. These maladies are often born of self-doubt, lack of inspiration, not knowing a way out. It is very hard to be inspired or see the solution when you are in the thick of it. One of the best ways to move forward is to create without an agenda, take a "time out" from your business, or step away for at least 48 hours to regroup and refresh. And if you need permission, I grant it.
