We’re super excited for it, so it’s a little bit natural, we’re willing to put on the effort and then all of sudden, you’re in the trenches and it’s not going as planned and you are like “Okey, do I really want to do this?” and it is like “Yeah!” Omid: This is great Jessica: That’s when you need to put in that much more and push through because, you’re going to end up on the other side and you’re going to be happy that you did it because the self though and the self-critical thinking that you have, either initially or partway through the process, or even at the end, you’re never going essentially give up on yourself. You’re never going to regret putting the effort and commitment in investing in yourself at the end of the day. Call to Action Have you experienced the Impostor Phenomenon?
