Before you go ahead and click into the cut of this blog post, I want you to do a (very brief) exercise. Take a minute or two to think about the following questions, and try to come up with one – or maybe more – people who you think would answer the question regarding your life.
1) Is there someone in your life who is holding you back from recognizing your dreams and full potential?
2) Is there someone who belittles you, puts you down, and discourages you from doing things due to the potential for failure?
3) Is there someone who makes you question your abilities, even when things are going seemingly well? For instance – let’s say you just started a new job, one you are definitely qualified for but that may be very different from a previous position. Is there someone who tells you “I don’t know if you can handle that?”
Have you figured it out yet?
