And perhaps you've been trying to change things in your own life. You've become aware that you're no longer comfortable playing the small and subservient role and you've been trying to speak up more, share your ideas, and/or promote yourself or your business.
But it's all been a bit two steps forward, one step back.
Of course it has. We're talking YEARS (decades, centuries, lifetimes) of conditioning we're working to overcome. It was after all, approximately the end of the 8th century BC that Athene declared in Homer's Odyssey that 'Speech will be the business of men...'
And that's the other thing to keep in mind; we're not just talking about limiting beliefs and ideas you've picked up in your own life. It's the collective consciousness too.
We're all tapped into that and it's affecting the way we are seen and heard in our homes, in our communities, in our work places, our businesses, and in public spaces.
