You’ve been busy working on Leveling Up Your Life and Growing a Garden any Farmers Market Maven would be proud to call their own.

Then one morning you notice weeds have crept in, sprouting up all over your hard work.  One problem after another blooms, getting in the way of the garden you’ve meticulously planned out.  In an effort to create some level of stability and effect some major damage control, you grab your handy-dandy Weed Whacker and commence to cutting down the riff raff.

Unfortunately, you also manage to chop quite a bit of the good stuff you were trying to protect - What’s Up With That!?

After the dust has settled, you realize the weeds might have been there for a reason - What have you done!?  You’ve jumped the gun...screwed the pooch...basically got in your own damned way by worrying about what’s happening around you instead of Keeping Calm and Carrying On.

Tune in to this week’s Success Freaks and learn the importance of taking a breath or two in the face of adversity.  Before throwing out both baby and bathwater, make sure you are not missing the opportunities hidden amongst the opposition.  Mordant & McFall remind you to relax, take that breath, and not “...take yourself so damned seriously.”  After all, “Your biggest adventure lies in the direction of the very things you’re afraid of.”
