I’m *Finally* Having the Breakthrough I’ve wanted for YEARS. The one I needed when I started Private Practice on my complete own and began freaking out (like no supervisor to watch me after 4 years of Supervisors) It’s THIS: I’ve never felt I deserved to have a place to say or do […]
In his book Outliers, Gladwell says, “I will argue there is something profoundly wrong with the way we make sense of success… In Outliers, I want to convince you that these kinds of personal explanations of success don’t work.
