Simone Miller – Beat the beast of unworthiness
As traders we are ambitious… we want to strive beyond just the basics.
But sometimes the beast of unworthiness steps in and sabotages your dreams.
It takes all forms and all manner of disguises:
- Do you take daily consistent actions to achieve your goals
- Do you waste time doing unnecessary tasks and waylaying ones that help you meet your goals
- Do you feel guilty about having more than others?
It is a strange fact in life that when you believe in yourself others will automatically as well. Love and relish the process of success and train yourself to think and act positivity and choose daily gratitude over doubt.
At the end of the day you are as worthy as anyone else and deserve success.
