Have you ever felt like you’re underwater? You have your head down, you’re swimming hard and just trying to get through whatever life throws at you.

We’ve all been there at some point in our lives.

It happens when you’re struggling to keep your business afloat, or dealing with career upheaval, or taking extra care of a family member.

It’s not easy.

In these dark and difficult times, we need light more than ever. When we’re deep underwater, we need to come up for air, find a little normalcy and just breathe.

In this episode, I’ll share with you why you need to come up for air when you feel like you’re drowning. You’ll discover why you tend to resist coming up for air, and I’ll show you how to break through that resistance.
