Sadly, it’s all coming to an end.
I’m talking about summer, don’t worry. We have less than one month until fall, which means it’s time to wrap up those summer reads and dive into something new.

Awareness is the ability to recognize what’s happening internally and externally. It will allow you to understand your character, feelings, and what inspires you. When you have that awareness, you’ll discover more about yourself and your identity will come to the surface.

Nothing can change without awareness.
Your comfort zones may keep you safe, but they don’t let you become the best version of yourself, unless you choose to leave it.

Intentional living is putting purpose behind your choices and actions. When you live intentionally, you align with your core values, beliefs, and goals.
In other words, when you live intentionally, your choices and actions become selective. When your choices and actions are selective, you ensure they always support your journey of self-discovery and becoming the best version of yourself.

2. Don’t take failure personally
3. Uncover your lesson and adjust
