Quote of the Conversation
“Do the best you can because if you’re graduating from an accredited program, you’ve got the tools you need. It’s just a case of learning how to listen to others and apply them in the best possible way.”It could be the thing you want most in the world, and your body thinks it’s a big old, scary bear. And that’s about being human. The things that are most meaningful to us are the scariest to us because, wow, what a risk. So, we often self-sabotage before we can even risk it. And so, I do believe in getting back in touch with who you are, your values, your strengths, and then doing the work to backwards plan from those goals.“Do the best you can because if you’re graduating from an accredited program, you’ve got the tools you need.
