  Shatter Your Limiting Beliefs!

As young children, we carry this light -- an ease of wonder and joy and limitlessness -- a belief that we are powerful and all things possible. So when did that change? 

Sadly, this process of dimming our light often begins at a young age and is learned from a variety of experiences that weren't meant to crush us but which implicitly taught us things -- like who we are is not enough or that only certain types of people get certain things in life. Over time we take these to heart and they become our limiting beliefs which influence our every move and end up holding us back from fully celebrating or sharing our unique voice and abilities with the world. The good news is that your story doesn't have to end here - I got you!

Take the first step with this free resource I've created to help you begin exploring your inner beliefs and shatter those pesky voices telling you you're anything less than fabulous.

LIVE A LIFE YOU LOVE - From The Inside Out

"For most of my life, I've had a natural tendency to view life experiences through a negative lens. This often led to feelings of regret when I realized later on that events not only were as insufferable as I thought, but they were even some of the most enjoyable periods of my life.  

After speaking regularly with Akwese, I came to truly understand the meaning of the power of positive thinking. I regularly search for the positive in my day or in a past or present experience so as not to have regrets in the future. She also helped show me that even when we do have challenging or negative experiences, it is worth analyzing lessons learned from situations and growing from them.  

I now find more enjoyment in my daily life and experiences and find myself having less regret about the way I spend my time."
