This espresso shot solo episode is an excerpt from my recent Masterclass: 2024: Your Breakthrough Year. I’ll have a few of these coming out over the next few weeks! In this one, I talk about the importance of self-worth in decision-making and taking proactive steps towards change. We explore the impact of fear and resistance on progress and the transformative power of embracing discomfort. I also share the transformation that a dragonfly undergoes and how we can learn from it by utilizing pain for personal transformation. Get the full recording at markgroves.com/2024
