    07/06/2021 Duración: 53min

    It is impossible to take a single step forward without shifting the balance. To liberate yourself from the state of inertia and stressful, destructive habits, you must get up-close and personal with your self-image, understand your current and desired circumstances, and develop communication that will let you FOCUS. To grasp the merit of self-actualization, one must understand that practical, spiritual, or mental success is a journey that starts with introspection. In episode 19, Jerome and I walk you through the six levels of liberation from the permanent stressors in your life. From the anxiety of failure, to a sheer inability to challenge the status quo, we are led to believe that transforming our personality and skillset is an instant process. That is the fundamental reason behind many failures. We must not overlook the underlying process that fuels the transformation of our minds. Jerome is an exceptional apartment investor, real estate expert, and a host of the dreamcatchers and Myers methods podcasts.
