Susan Davis - “Way of the Cobra" - Time to Release Your Inner Badass.

The pandemic has changed us in so many ways. It has changed the way we do our work, the way our children learn, the way we communicate and the way we connect with others, to highlight just a few examples. There are so many human emotions and impacts to this global shift that have us coming out the other side stronger or worse, behind the 8 ball, or anywhere in-between, in all aspects of our lives.

I have heard people refer to this as being stuck, languishing, or mundane and it has the power to get to the best of us. If you were unaffected, I congratulate you for being super human. If you have experienced this, you may need a good kick in the butt, like I did,  to reignite the spark and get back to thriving in the present.

The following words got my attention: “Welcome to my dojo: the dojo of life….COBRA Life. I am your Sensei. Time to release your inner badass using my battle-tested tactics and time proven strategies. Time to wake the beast. Trust me, you have one! It may have gotten lost or ignored for too long but it’s in there. By the end of this book I am going to find that successful, focused, driven COBRA within you. What you do with it is up to you. I recommend becoming a Sensei yourself to guide others to do the same. The endless circle of helping yourself by helping others is the Way of the COBRA: Transform yourself and you can transform the world.”  This is the introduction to the book Way of the COBRA- How to Unleash Your Inner Badass by Sean Kanan.

I will be sharing some of Sean’s tactics and correlating how unleashing your inner badass will help you step up your game as a Business Analyst. I am your Sensei for the next hour.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, it is the one that is most adaptable to change.”
