Elizabeth’s Final Push will inspire you to BE RESILIENT!
“You really need to be careful to take care of yourself and not spread yourself too thin or stretch yourself out.”
“It’s definitely nice to turn off your phone and not touch it for 25 hours.”
“Many people don’t ask for help, and if you don’t ask for help, you’re never going to get help. No one is just going to hand you things on a silver platter.”
“During your downtime, hustle!”
“The concept of balance is B.S. There is no such thing as balance. You just need to take it one day at a time.”
“Be resilient. Do not let yourself get defeated by someone telling you no.”
