Is Your Self-talk Talking Yourself Out of Success?

Just think about all of the things you know you could start doing right now in order to make your life better, but that you are putting off.

Of Equal Worth

The notion of humility as a virtue brings numerous images to mind. We tend to envision those rare individuals who humbly bear life’s struggles while downplaying their own strengths.
