Understanding Self-Doubt, and How You Can Overcome It.

Self-Doubt, a lack of faith in oneself: a feeling of doubt or uncertainty about one’s abilities, actions, etc.  thank you, Merriam-Webster.

The Journey of Self-Confidence and Discovering Your Self-Worth, with Amy Rushworth

Raise your hand if you’ve heard a quote similar to this: “life is about the journey, not the destination”. I believe the first person to coin that phrase was Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Surround Yourself with the Right People

Motivational speaker Jim Rohn famously said that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. This relates to the law of averages, which is the theory that the result of any given situation will be the average of all outcomes. When it comes to relationships, we are greatly influenced — whether...

GBS-CIDP Awareness Month – Chat with Jeremy Oster

If there’s one thing about life, it’s that it’s unpredictable, right? Just when you think things are going well, something happens that throws a wrench in the works.

Living an authentic life, something I think most of us can agree is important.

It’s not...
