August 5:  “HEAD GAMES. The only one who can tell you “You can’t” is you. And you don’t have to listen!” presented by Catherine Byers Breet.   I’ll never forget the day I was turned down for a job I desperately wanted. I was heartbroken. Worst of all, I was full of voices in my head that stopped me in my tracks from chasing any other opportunities. The voices changed constantly … from “You’re not worthy.” to “ You’re not good enough. ” to “You don’t want it anyway.” None of those voices were true. I WAS good enough, and I WAS worthy, and I COULD HAVE gone to do that kind of work somewhere else. But I did not listen to those voices. Instead, I listened to the ones who told me “No, you can’t.” I settled. I sold myself short. And 3 months later, I woke up in a toxic job. JOIN US to learn from my mistakes, and be the one who starts to tell you “Yes, you can!”
