00:00 “When you’re in a place of making things happen and forcing things to be and pushing, pushing, pushing, you can get stuff done. You can work 70 hours, and you can have success, but there’s a glass ceiling there because your Being can’t hold that. Your mental state can’t hold that. You’ll constantly live with imposter syndrome because you’re not well enough to hold the magnitude of what’s within you. So it’s being on a committed personal growth path that will allow you tremendous success.” Gabby Bernstein.
