Ep61: Let Go to Grow Part 2
Sometimes the stories we tell ourselves hold us back and keep us from growing into our full potential.
We tell ourselves stories like:
“I don’t have time to grow my business…”
“I can’t afford to reinvest in my business and make it better….”
“I’m perfectly happy with my business the way it is now…”
In this episode, I’m breaking down the stories and paradigms that hold us back from becoming our best selves. We’ll talk about how to turn roadblocks into challenges, and push through the fear that keeps us stuck in our comfort zones.
Listen now and learn how to let go of lies, fear, and the stories that stand in the way of amazing opportunities.
