When on a plane, it is a rule of thumb that you first put on your oxygen mask before helping others with theirs. By prioritizing your own need for oxygen, only then will you have the ability and the strength to help someone else. This is the same principle that we’ve been discussing all throughout Selfish September to help you understand the redefinition of selfish, become aware of what avoiding bad confrontation can do for you, and knowing how you can protect your “me time.”
On today’s episode, I share why you should be your unapologetic self, and how to use your passion in finding your purpose. I also explain how you can dig to find your ultimate purpose and eventually do better and be better in your relationships and your business.
