    When “Fine” is no longer enough with Karsta Marie

    Do you ever feel like life is just happening to you, rather than unfolding for you? Like you're caught in a whirlwind of other people's expectations, constantly ticking off societal checkboxes, even when your heart is yearning for something... different? You're not alone.
    Karsta Marie once found herself in that very whirlwind. She had a life that was, by most standards, 'fine.' But 'fine' wasn’t good enough for her. She felt the pull of dreams and desires that were begging to be acknowledged. And so, amidst life's unpredictable twists and turns, she redefined her journey from one of mere acceptance to one that's truly 'EPIC.'
    An international best-selling author and a mental fitness guru, Karsta's voice is a soothing blend of compassionate warmth and that energizing jolt of tough love that wakes us up from complacency.
     
    Why “fine” is no longer good enough and how to break free. Transform the societal checkboxes into your EPIC life by tuning into what you really want. The importance of creating a vision of your future self and the secret to harnessing its true power. Discover the art of breaking big dreams into small steps and the secret power of emotional goals. Why self-development and Inner Child Healing go hand-in-hand. Debunking the myth of a self-development finish line.  
    Make sure to listen to the end to hear Karsta's pearls of wisdom on savouring the journey, and Lucie's offer that might just change your life.
