Are YOU the Problem?
Do you feel like you always have to say, “Yes?”
Do you feel you have to compromise just to keep the peace?
Do you tend to avoid uncertainty?
Do you have a clear identity of who you are?
Do you lack your own vision?

From Dr. Carter’s video:
check your reputation – how do people react with me? What do people say about you?
check your tone of voice – how do you talk with folks? persuasive? calmly? softly? approachable?
what is your listening to telling ratio? what is your awareness of others?
what is the frequency of your anger and frustration? How quickly do you become irritated or annoyed?
are you the kind of person who shows acceptance of other people – or not? What if they are different from you?
are you the kind of person who solicits input on a regular basis?
The topic of our “good days” and “bad days” came up and the question was asked, “Have you heard of the science behind BIORYTHMS?
There is actual science behind our up days and our down days. When experiencing a particularly low day energy-wise, I got curious and looked up my bio rhythm.
Sure enough! I had bottomed out on energy that particular day. Instead of beating myself up for being “lazy” or asking, “What’s wrong with me?” I decided to head those negative thoughts off-at-the-pass by utilizing my handy-dandy Google calendar, and blocked out my low days as “Health Days”.
Now, instead of reacting negatively, I have made room to recharge my batteries without guilt or shame.
