Show Up!
I didn't think I would be publishing a new episode today because I felt tired and needed a break. However, I decided to show up and this episode was made to encourage you to show up as well. No matter how tired and unmotivated you may feel. Woody Allen said that eighty percent (80%) of success is showing up. This episode is for those feeling tired at the moment and feel like giving up. Show up instead.
