Through our posts, and the articles that we usually share on our social media profiles, we often encourage our readers to understand that with just a small change of attitude, including our thoughts and inner dialogue, most aspects of our life can be simplified to a point where we can save ourselves a lot of headaches.

Toxic Belief #1: Perfection = Success
When perfection is your goal, you’re always left with a nagging sense of failure, and you end up spending your time lamenting what you failed to accomplish
