Self Limiting Beliefs

Mindset is everything. You’ve probably heard of that before. What you think, speak, and believe is what turns into truth.   If you’re a negative person, you’ll always see the glass as half empty.

We’ve lived in NorCal (not to be confused with beautiful beaches and sunny CA) for 5 …
