How to Keep Your Cool with “Opponents”

When you’re a changemaker, you often face a lot of opposition in the world, your communities, and even with your own family and friends.

Sometimes it’s people who are very ideologically set against your cause. Other times, it’s just folks who are uncomfortable, for whatever reason, with the changes you’re personally trying to make.

Either way, it can be deeply frustrating and kind of heartbreaking when people push back against something that is so important to you.

In this week’s The Changemakers Sessions, I give you techniques for not getting rattled or discouraged by opposition.

We get clear on WHY it’s so important to your mission to find a way not to blow your lid when someone, say, denies white privilege or tells you they’re not concerned with the environmental impact of flying. :p

You’ll learn mindset shifts that can turn friction into an opportunity to create deeper levels of understanding and connection with potential allies… and within yourself.

Dear One… I don’t want your work in the world to alienate you and shut you down. I want it to open your heart more profoundly to life!

Hugs, Kimberly
