Incarcerated: 4 Walls That Limit Success Pt I.

Have you ever been incarcerated?

Of course you have. I have. Everybody has. At some point in time all of us have locked ourselves up mentally and emotionally. (By the way if you were really were incarcerated, my bad for the flashback!)

1. Lack of Awareness
2. Limiting Beliefs and Values
3. Negative Environment
4. Toxic Emotions
