And The Trouble Is If You Don’t Risk Anything You Risk More. Are You Fearless in the Pursuit of What Sets Your Soul on Fire?

The blog, “And The Trouble Is If You Don’t Risk Anything You Risk More. Are You Fearless in the Pursuit of What Sets Your Soul on Fire?” talks about fear. The author compares off-road jeeping to similar feelings she experienced when starting her own business. 

Obstacles on the trail can be looked at as roadblocks, things to be scared of that prohibit you from moving forward. They can also be looked at as opportunities, or things that push you to be fearless, and enable progress. As there is fear on the trail, there is also fear in life. Your personal mindset can make or break you. It can make a difference in your ability to grow and develop, it can also hold you back. 

Mark Twain said, “Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not the absence of fear.” If you don’t risk anything, by not facing up to your fear, you risk more. Playing it safe is where your dreams go to die. What are you doing to prevent that? How are you being fearless, personally or professionally, in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire?

The Myth: It's Only a "Cat-fight"

The blog, “The Myth: It’s Only a Cat Fight” talks about rivalrous behaviors between women in a working setting and how it can completely disrupt an environment. There is a general awareness of rivalry between women, commonly, often jokingly, referred to as “cat-fights.” The term in itself, discredits the seriousness of the situation. It is a silent epidemic. Silent in the aspect that women who are recipients of this type of behavior often do not speak about their experience until it is behind them, or near to being over. Silent in the fact that there is often awareness by others about the behavior as it is occurring, but traditionally it is not overtly dealt with until after the fact, if ever. These so called cat fights are serious, they often are the result of indirect aggressive behaviors and can have a serious impact on the woman whom it is targeted toward.
