Embracing the idea that you can want things for yourself even if nobody else understands the why behind them is the most freeing and powerful feeling in the world.Rachel Hollins; Girl,stop apologizing
As women, we’ve (at least the majority of us) had a lifetime of believing that our value lies primarily in our ability to make others happy. We are afraid of so many things when it comes to our dreams, but the biggest fear is of being judged for having them in the first place. Feeling stuck, even struggled to make time for dreams, but more than that struggled even to admit those dreams to ourselves.
This book is broken up into three parts: Excuses to let go of, Behaviours to adopt, and skills to acquire to accomplish anything you wish for! While one may not find every part of this book relatable, everyone can find areas of value that can be applied to their own lives. (Even for guys!)
Have you ever been trapped inside the crippling weight of other people’s expectations and had to talk yourself out of a dream or gave up on your goal?
Have you ever had big dreams, but never really had a plan of action for accomplishing them?
I say it’s time to take action! Read this life-changing guide for you to hit that reset button and start here and now, on your goals. Here is what we’ve all needed- to dump our excuses, embrace our dreams, set boundaries, and gain real confidence and momentum in life.
