I hate dealing with conflict, but it’s a reality in life and in business.
Last year I was dealing with a sticky business situation that lawyers had to get involved in. It was super stressful because I knew it was going to lead to a bridge being burned. It took a bit of time —and a lot of yoga sessions —to fully accept that.
While I wish things would have ended differently between the parties involved, I look at every experience as an assignment, with something to learn from it. I came to realize that sometimes we absolutely have to burn bridges and remove people or projects or situations from our lives that are draining us of our energy.
If you find yourself dealing with a conflict or wondering whether it’s okay to burn a bridge, I hope my tips in this episode of She Takes on the World TV can help.
If you’ve ever gone through your own experience where you had to let a bridge burn, you probably have some great advice to share. I’d love to hear from you in a comment below.
