(* “Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.” —Mary Kay Ash I have come to discover that self sabotage can show up in different ways in the lives of people. There are some who are not confident about life because of their body type, height, colour, etc. There are some who have some sort of disability or even health condition that made them develop a negative perspective to life. You may have also seen people who have similar conditions to yours and are enjoying a different reality. These things may appear subtle, but in the end, it's about your disposition and not your position. Our guest this week, Sam Idowu, brings in a little twist to the flow of the series. Today's episode of Lead Your Life Series features the story of how Sam, battled with an issue of frequent painful urination (It might sound funny, but you can never tell what people are really going through).
