3 Essential Skills That Will Help You Succeed In A Much Bigger Way

Last night over dinner, my friend—relationship and couples therapist Yamel Corcoll-Iglesias and I were sharing our views about essential life skills we believe people need to thrive in life and work. We compared our different perspectives about what we’ve seen through our years of working with people in pain and conflict—people who are not succeeding in their goals, and are, in fact, heading down a path of despair and self-destruction and will continue to do so unless significant changes are made.
