Have you ever seen a friend or a loved one completely sabotage their success? Of course, we all have. As a friend, we’re there on the sidelines trying to help them but they are so blind to their surroundings and so set in their ways that they are like a run away train that nothing can slow down.
This doesn’t mean you are stuck there for the rest of your life. Life is fluid and things change, but that change must begin with you.
One of the first steps of changing for the better is becoming aware of what is going on, so let’s have a look at some of the common destructive beliefs we all hold to one degree or another, or at least I hold. Hopefully I’m not the only messed up person here.
- I’m not good enough
- I am not worth it
- I can’t do it
- I am alone
- What if…
Most importantly…. How to overcome them

The miracle is this – the more we share, the more we have.
