It is necessary to practice courage, compassion, and connection on a daily basis in order to develop worthiness. It is a mistake to try and win someone over, because it means trading in the sense of self in search of approval from another. By doing this, people stop believing in their own worth.

The first step toward living wholeheartedly is for people to have the courage to reach out to others and to share their own stories of shame. When in need

What's a habit? If someone were to ask you about your daily habits, you might need some time to think about them. That's because a habit, by definition, is an act that you perform automatically by instinct. Like when you walk into a dark room, you instinctively turn on a light switch, right? Habits are actions you don't even have to think about, which is why you might not realize how a small daily action can have a powerful effect on your life. If you're saving a dollar a day or smoking a cigarette a day, these actions may not seem like much now, but twenty years from now, those habits can either make you rich or, unfortunately, kill you.
