There are times in our lives where we all seem to feel like we are in a financial rut. Instead of taking action to change our financial situations, we often tolerate our static situation. “Your rut might be about your diet, or fitness level.” “Perhaps it’s a particularly challenging relationship.”
We all have areas in our lives that we would like to improve. “For a long time, my rut was about money.” I recently interviewed a colleague, about how women generate successful businesses and here are few takeaways.
1. We Are Programmed By Nature For Survival, Not For Flourishing
We are equipped by nature to “take a licking and keep on ticking.” However, the skills we learn to survive trauma or ongoing abuse are not the skills and behaviors that lead us to achieving our full potential.
2. Sustained Happiness Is An Ongoing Activity
Every person has the capacity for creativity. Developing it just takes some effort. “No matter your level of talent, if you’re willing to work at bettering yourself, you grow your creative capacity.”
