Own Your Voice with Margo Tirado - AJ 57

Own Your Voice with Margo Tirado - AJ 57

April 12, 2022

You have the power to change your life. And your power begins with owning your voice.

Being powerful is not about having the big job, the right house, or a large bank account. Being powerful is having the inner confidence to move your beliefs into action. Building your inner strength begins with having strong emotional habits. Emotional habits are the thoughts and patterns you repeat every day—they determine how you make decisions, how you view yourself, how people relate to you, which opportunities you pursue, and so much more.
