The Liminality Blog
In the liminal space between what was and what will be, lies the power to step into a new chapter of growth and possibility.
Whenever we are making big, transformative change in our lives, it's important to acknowledge that others around us may be impacted. By seeking to be transparent and communicative about the changes we're making, we can help others in our orbit to understand how those changes might affect them and to gain their support for our journey.

1. Recognize the Belief:
The first step is to become aware of the limiting belief that is holding you back. Pay attention to the thoughts and self-talk that arise when you feel blocked or discouraged.
