The shell must break before the bird can fly.

~ Alfred Tennyson  

I’m at a glass ceiling.

The job is boring. They have not had a raise in five years at this company.

I feel that life is passing me by.

We need to breakthrough.

It’s not about the glass ceilings that companies or organizations erect; but the ones that we erect in our own minds.
