Armed with Personal Power

There is little doubt, Travis armed himself with an inner strength, called Personal Power. Defined by ISEI (Institute of Social Emotional Intelligence), Personal Power is a sense of self-confidence and an inner knowing that you can meet life’s challenges and live the life you choose; the ability to have the difficult conversations in life, and to speak your truth quietly, sincerely, assertively and appropriately. 

Think about your life for a moment. Do you lead a life with Personal Power filled with the knowing that you can DO what you THINK and SAY what you're going to do? Can you turn your Personal Power up a notch?
