Have you been going on someone else's word about what you should be doing? How much of your life is based on hearsay? Dr. Robin says you need to stop living your life based on other people's experiences. "Don't take someone else's word," she says. "Go and check it out for yourself—then you have the power of your own information and experiences."
No matter what the unknown may be, Dr. Robin says that you are the only person who knows what is best for you. "I want you to soar into the sky of your own aspirations, your own dreams, listen to your inner voice and what your body says to you," she says. Once you start checking out things for yourself and stop taking everyone else's word, Dr. Robin says you will live your best life. "I promise that you will gain information that will help you go the distance," she says.
