Breaking Free: (Re)Defining the Undefined

In life, there are always new challenges that every human encounters. You try to learn something new, challenge emerges that prevents you from succeeding. You seek to grow, obstacles arise. You attempt to break patterns, you succumb to the familiar, the routine. There are stereotypes, norms, rules, forces that arise and prevent us from being the best version of ourselves.

Join me as I speak about breaking free through escaping what is defined.
