Today I’m talking about the One Percent Theory, which I love for finding manageable goals because this is how we create impactful change while incorporating hard reduction and confronting perfection paralysis. We talk about overcoming negative self talk, the importance of celebrating our achievements and the practice that keeps us void of shame and in our worth. If you tend to beat yourself up or feel stuck, you’ll want to tune in!
