Become sovereign

Sovereignty is the practice of alining your thoughts, emotions and actions. Most people lack sovereignty

which means that their emotions aren’t in harmony with their thoughts, neither with their actions.

For example, if you want to read a book today but you instantly feel that this is going to be boring, you’ll never actually read that book. However, if you think of something and you get positive feelings as a reaction, taking action won’t be that difficult.

If you’re aware of this, you can easily implement it. As a result, staying focused on your responsibilities and work will become a piece of cake.
