Perhaps our health is not the greatest, finances are not quite right, or our love life is failing. There are no limits to what applies as we contemplate what needs to be upgraded.

We must recognize that we tend to suffer from low self esteem, poor motivation, or shame; and of course, the dreaded self-sabotage. When challenged, we often times concede as opposed to trying harder.
