As humans tend to avoid change, saying "Well we've always done this." So when doing something isn't working then it must be time to make a change. Have the courage to make a change. You can do it.
We often forget it's okay to say no and you can do it without being rude. Sometimes saying no is in your best interest.
We tend to forget to pat ourselves on the back for a job well done and let others know how awesome we think they are doing. Try it! Boast about what you have accomplished and let someone else know what a great job they are doing. A little compliment goes a long ways.
