"That's so 'cheesy'…"

Some of the biggest critiques of motivational content is that it is “cheesy”, “oversimplified”, “repetitive”, or sometimes even “a scam”.

I forgot to breathe

As many of you know, I take great joy in publishing my weekly articles. They are not only a release for my own thoughts, but they are a chance for me to try my best to share with you ideas that may help you navigate your own lives. I started this weekly ritual at the…
