When the numbers don't matter.

My facebook group has been a major source of aggravation for me. So I decided to stop complaining and have done something about it. I had to decide that the numbers do not matter when I want and active and engaged community. 

I combed through my group and found that there are a lot of fake accounts and/or people l that are not active on facebook. I removed all of these people - Well over 150.

I have a few questions for you. Ready?

Do you compare yourself to others, leading to feelings of inadequacy?

Ever had the experience of accomplishing something amazing only to focus on all the things you did wrong?

Or spend months on a project, pouring your heart and soul into it only to be too embarrassed to let anyone see it?

All of these can be huge hurdles to overcome, even if you are a person who’s inherently motivated, talented and ambitious.

Soooo, are you ready to shift out of these patterns? Then let’s start with something basic. It embodies two simple words:
