Check out this episode for 5 tips on how to handle being misunderstood!

Have you been misunderstood? Has someone questioned your values because you have the audacity to go after a goal? Have they criticized your parenting or your commitment to work? Have you ever felt judged by others for deciding to make your goal--be it a business goal, a monetary goal, a fitness achievement, or a creative work (like a book, or a piece of art)--a priority?
 
No matter how big or small your goal is, reaching it means that you will have to create something new in your life. You will have to become someone new. You will have to become the person that can attain that goal. When you do that, there may be people who misunderstand you. They may ridicule you, call you names, think you are wasting your time, or shun you. But ultimately, in order to reach your goal, you are going to need to allow them to misunderstand you.
 
In this episode, Jen shares 5 new ways to handle being misunderstood. And none of them include arguing with them or defending yourself.  Check out this episode for a new way to handle being misunderstood--from a place of peace, compassion, and integrity.
