I don’t know about you, but I know I’ve struggled with self-love in the past.
I’ve thought that I wasn’t enough — at sports, at relationships, at business, and just at life in general. I’ve struggled to truly love myself, I’ve lived in the past, and I’ve let my imperfections define me.
I think it’s safe to assume that even the most confident person in the world has experienced a time in their life when they didn’t love themself.
Self-doubt and fear is part of being human, but we all face a moment in our lives when we have to make a decision:
Do we continue to live in fear? Or do we choose to love ourselves, embrace our future, and choose happiness?
When we don’t love ourselves, we make typically make decisions that aren’t healthy, such as staying in toxic relationships, having a scarcity mindset surrounding money, or not pursuing our dreams because we’re afraid we’ll fail. When we don’t love ourselves, we give up agency in our lives.
But when we do love ourselves, not only are we much happier, but we can make decisions that support our values, bring us success, and create healthy, long-lasting relationships.
To understand how we can own our future in life, love, and success, I’m bringing back one of my favorite guests of all time — the incredible Tony Robbins.
