Confronting the reality of the circumstances of our lives is absolutely essential to our success and in overcoming obstacles / solving problems.
That is why today, I am asking you to join me in pledging to:
- Address the tough stuff directly.
- Speak out courageously in conversation. Acknowledge the normally unsaid.
- Tell the emperor he has no clothes.

Our courage may fail or we just might want to avoid discomfort. Revisit my article on courage if you need a refresher on ways to develop more of it.
“Courage is the first of all human qualities, because it is the one that guarantees all the others.”- Winston Churchill
Resist the urge to bury your head in the sand. Let’s speak up!
