We learn more in this episode about living vicariously through yourself. My guest, Angela Marshall, and I discuss not listening to external voices, ignoring those negative internal voices, and being who you are. We discuss what we have learned from our personal experiences.
Being who you are, rather than who others want you to be, is an essential aspect of living a fulfilling life. It’s easy to fall into the trap of trying to please others and meet their expectations. However, in doing so, we can lose sight of our own desires and passions. When you prioritize your authentic self, you’ll attract people who appreciate and accept you for who you are, rather than for what you can do for them. It takes courage to be yourself and live authentically, but the rewards are worth it – you’ll experience greater joy, meaning, and fulfillment in your life.
The goal is to inspire and motivate you to believe in your abilities and not let external negativity hold you back.
