Ep.252 | Dr. Dharius Daniels | Turn Your Obstacles Into Opportunities

Are your obstacles in life PERCEIVED or REAL?

To be honest, most of my biggest ones are perceived. I have a tendency to project so many *possible* scenarios and then next thing you know, I’ve put up the hurdle between my current position and my progress.
