Change is constant.
Especially in the world we live in today, there seems to be little certainty in what tomorrow will look like, let alone next week.
Fear creeps in, and before we know it, we feel like we have lost control, find ourselves stuck and unable to move forward.
Personally, and professionally, we can get in our own way without even knowing it. We may self-sabotage, hold ourselves back due to fear, talk ourselves out of our abilities. All of which are ways that we “get in our own way”.

If you happen to be at a different place and just need some tips and guidance to get going again, know that there’s no need to stay down in the dumps longer than necessary.
Here are five tips to help get your started…
