Why are there so many elephants in your room? How come you are ignoring them when they are taking up so much space? Look around your life. You are being suffocated.
First acknowledge that the elepants are there, that they are affecting you and everyone else around you. Then, get rid of those elephants from your room. The thing is, everyone else sees them in your life as well. The only person you are fooling is yourself.
Stretch, enjoy the space around you. That’s the only way you can grow.
