“I’m sorry.” I did or said something not-so-good. Did confess. Didn’t defend. Stopped some ratcheting up of anger, accusation, tendrils of frustration… Relief all around.

“I need help.” Different from directly asking for it. How come? The other person gets to totally decide both the “if” and the […]

I know it’s here somewhere; I know that I saw it . . .

The heartfelt smile is when the corners of your lips expand and turn up, the skin […]

by GSCA Member, Jackie Simmons – condensed from the book: The Game Changer: Volume 3
