Ep. 36 New Years Challenge [Season 1 Finale]

By Dr. Shante Bishop | December 30, 2015
As we enter a NEW YEAR, we will be bombarded with declarations to do more, to do better, to lose this and gain that. I encourage each of you to refrain from such declarations and instead:
Reflect and Examine – Look at all of the things you did and didn’t do in 2015. What went right? What went wrong? Where did you get stuck? What did you do TOO MUCH of? What didn’t you do ENOUGH of? And most of all, what did you LEARN? We can’t live life successfully, without the valuable lessons it teaches us. So instead of declaring: Look within. Listen. Learn. And Correct.
