Our brains create self-limiting beliefs to keep us safe and comfortable, but as humans, we can only grow when we’re outside of our comfort zones.

If you don’t keep perfectionism and imposter syndrome in check, they will prevent you from reaching your true potential.

Today, I’m joined by Meg Rentschler who’s here to help break down how you can begin to let go of self-limiting beliefs. Meg is a seasoned Clinical Social Worker and Professional Certified Coach who has helped many women over the past four decades completely change their lives.

In our conversation, we discussed the importance of being proactive vs reactive to life’s circumstances, how to deal with the discomfort of change, and ways to let go of your limiting beliefs and keep an eye out for unforeseen opportunities.
