Overcoming Obstacles - The Ones Within Us
For this unit, you will need to consider your own internal obstacles. As with the last unit, this will look very different for each of you, but make no mistake, we all have internal obstacles that we must overcome. An unhealthy desire to belong. Procrastinating when something isn't "fun." Avoiding when something is "too hard." During this unit we'll talk about what it means to be our own worst enemy and how to overcome our own internal obstacles in order to be successful.
