Most of us have dreams of living a fulfilling life, but when it comes down to get serious about realising our dream, we lose focus. Why do we stop dreaming and settle into our comfort zone?

If you are like me, you have dedicated your entire life to your family and their well-being. You have been juggling being a mum, work commitments, and household duties. More than likely you feel proud of yourself, but are you truly contributing meaningfully to your life and your overall dreams?

Most of us are not aware that every human interaction involves the process of persuasion and influence.

The fact is that we can persuade others to help us or we can be persuaded to help them.
