Stress, self-doubt and overwhelm are 100% optional
We have these knee-jerk, habitual thoughts that cause feelings like pity, or self-doubt. What default mode thinking and feeling do you experience most often? For me, it's pity. So much so I don't recognize when I'm in self-pity until I'm on day 3, wondering why I feel terrible. Once I realize what's happening and why I feel terrible I gain immediate relief. I want to help you experience that same relief. Start by asking yourself these 6 questions.

- Things are too hard. I'm not strong enough. I can't handle it.
- I can't do it. I'll never get it.
- Something bad is going to happen. Something is wrong.
- Someone else/something else/an event past or present has control over me/my feelings/my life.
