From a young age we’re asked – “what do you want to be when you grow up?” – implying that we have to be just one thing. Our natural curiosity may take us in unexpected directions but all it takes is an expression of doubt from someone else to stop us in our tracks. In this episode we discuss the importance of questioning self-imposed limitations and removing labels that others may ascribe to us. We discuss two main limiting beliefs that we had to overcome – the idea that we’re bad at writing and the belief that we’re not good marketers.
We talk about the importance of taking the initial step to act on your internal desires, eventually removing your self-imposed labels through sustained effort that leads to the external validation you need to completely redefine yourself.
