We have reached the final key of courageous self-expression, and it’s a doozy. In Part 1 of a two-part series on agency, we're going to explore what keeps us moving in life and why it is we get stuck. Candice reviews the first six keys. Then she walks you through the five facets of human agency and explains how a deficit in any one of these areas can erode agency over time. We explore why choice is so damn complicated and how motivation is rarely as simple as finding the energy to do the thing. As usual, honest stories bring the content to life. Candice shares how insecurity led to a perpetual loss of agency in her life & how she eventually found the will to move as an independent entity. This episode is a great place to start if you're feeling stuck or unsure of your next move. And, it lays the foundation for the next & final episode in our long-running series on self-expression where Candice will reveal the illuminating results of her post-graduate research on human agency. You won't wanna miss it!
