Lately, it is hard to feel optimistic about the state of our country, and I feel as though there is cause for concern. Now is the optimal time to take a look at the things we believe, assess whether they are true, and be open to the possibility that they may not be. There is so much misinformation spread down through the generations, but times have changed and we need to be open to changing too. So in this episode, I will be sharing my thoughts on limiting beliefs, as well as how I have learned to pivot my mindset and values to focus more on the people in my life—not just the money.
