Ep #22: It’s Not About You – How to Stop Taking Sh*t Personally


On this short but impactful episode of The Lawyer Stress Solution, I am excited to share a powerful tool with all of you that I often teach to my coaching clients.

Whether you’re devastated after a promising first date or you’re stressing out about edits to your memo, you’re taking other people’s behavior personally. This learned behavior has a tremendous impact on your personal and professional life and also happens to be the number one cause of any interpersonal conflict.

In this episode, I explain the importance of not taking things personally and I prove to you that what other people choose to do means absolutely NOTHING about you. Tune in to find out what you can start doing today to stop taking someone else’s actions personally and dramatically improve your romantic and professional life.
