The 2K11 24/7 CCCIX: Destroying Disappointment

Being disappointed in ourselves is an utter waste of time. We get discouraged when things don’t go quite right, while the very act of doing so only reduces the chances of us being successful past that point! It’s a vicious circle that only feeds into our own negativity and […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCCVIII: Crabs in a Bucket
