What if the Barriers Were Only in Your Head? [Podcast S04E12]

Defeating Limiting Beliefs in the 3 Major Areas of Life

Welcome to Season 4, Episode 12 of the This Is Your Life podcast. Stu McLaren is filling in for my regular cohost Michele Cushatt. In this episode, we discuss how to defeat the beliefs that are holding you back.

Most of the things that hold us back are not external. They’re inside our heads and hearts, the limiting beliefs that keep us from making meaningful progress toward our goals—or even setting those goals to begin with.
