We all have that little voice in our heads telling us we can't do something we really want to do. Maybe it comes from being a perfectionist, maybe it comes from feeling like we need to be an expert at something before we starting taking action. No matter what the reason "Why?" there is still no reason to be such a hater on your own life. Here's an excerpt from my latest workshop in my online community to help you break up with that chick.

Now you might be thinking to yourself, "What does this girl know about struggling and rock bottom?" Well, I want to start by telling you about my rock bottom.
I used to think a lot about the future – where would I be in 5 years, what job was I trying to get, what did I want my life to look like, what vacation did I want to go on next. I am naturally a planner and very organized. One day I realized that by being so focused on the future, I wasn’t allowing myself to enjoy the present.
