When it Comes To Your Career-Building Efforts, Are You as Courageous as a Baby Squirrel?
Are You as Courageous as a Baby Squirrel?
By Dumont Gerken Owen, Ph.D.

I watched a baby squirrel the other day as he learned to navigate trees. He carefully tested each branch to see if it could hold his weight. A little later, I went back and looked up in the tree. I was amazed! The squirrel was jumping from branch to branch.
Talk about a leaf of faith! This was one courageous squirrel.
How about you?
