Stop and ask yourself, “are you doing as well as you can in every aspect of your life?” If we are being honest with ourselves, the answer is no. In what ways are we restricting our growth based on the fact that we refuse to look at our own faults and shortcomings dead in the face? In this episode I give you a raw, emotional example from my life that made me stop and reexamine a particular aspect in my life and I give you 4 actionable steps you can take to ruthlessly weed out these flaws and improve on them.
