I have had a constant 15 year battle to be true! No, I am not talking about speaking honestly. I am not even talking about acting in an honest manner that shows integrity.

Limiting permission beliefs are like a shackle around your ankle designed to slow you down. Empowering permission beliefs are like a shovel to a gardener – useful! Click Here To Read Full Article...
