The Fear Of Failure And Why Fear Is Holding You Back

Girl, Your Journey Starts Here Podcast

STOP Complaining, Start DOING
✨Happy New Year, and welcome to the first episode of the year! I'm so happy to have survived 2020, so let's get to working on those goals for 2021!! Complaining is a harmful habit that distances us from self-realization because once we complain about something, we end up saying something we don’t want, instead of saying what we really want... In this episode I will explain why it's time to put those complaints aside and start checking off those things on your to-do list! You have been complaining all 2020, now it's time to take ACTION! Remember anyone can come up with a goal, but not everyone has the ability to achieve it. For that to happen, you need to take action first. Goals are not like dreams or prayers. You cannot just close your eyes and wish for it to happen. You have to do something and STOP COMPLAINING! Happy Listening, Olivia B.

When you dig through the mess, you're likely to excavate a lot of deep emotional residue that's buried in your clutter. Everything from bad memories to broken dreams, too bad relationships. All this can get uncovered in a deep clean, and each one you confront creates more room for truly new. ”THE FIRST STEP IN CRAFTING THE LIFE YOU WANT IS TO GET RID OF EVERYTHING YOU DON'T ” ~ Joshua Becker
