What growth feels like

You aren't sure how this is going to go.  You feel nervous.  Anxiety.  You're asking questions (a little frantically) to save your own skin.  You're a little (or a lot) scared.  You might second guess and want to go back or quit.  Butterflies. This is what growth feels like.  Stick…


Self-limiting beliefs
