Having enough self-respect to set and adhere to high personal health standards is essential for living the best life possible. Often, we make up stories that undermine our goals.

This is called “negativity bias”. Developing self-respect requires doing the hard work of setting a goal and keeping on track towards that goal. During this podcast, I discuss how self-respect factors into achieving our health and wellness goals.
