Successfully Conquering Limiting Beliefs


Notable Quotes

“One thing I think get wrong about self-mastery is they think it all has to come from the self, and I think that couldn’t be further from the truth. I think we are tribal animals, and our success is dependent on help from others.”
Jonah Larkin


Episode Summary

Self-mastery can be a daunting concept for many of us, we think of the pressure it entails—the pressure of achieving this level of self-development, and the pressure of having to achieve it alone, which is a misconception. The thing is, the road to self-mastery isn’t something we have to walk alone.

In this episode of Health Coach Academy, we’re talking to executive and life coach Jonah Larkin about self-mastery and how it’s not something we have to achieve by ourselves. Jonah also shares a bit about conquering limiting beliefs and effectively building habits.
