It's awkward and weird at first, but I'm learning how to feel emotions that I usually stuffed below the surface before.
We all should be growing and evolving as we work towards achieving our next goal. Life keeps moving forward, so if we don’t keep striving to be better, well, then what is the point?

On this episode of Underdog Empowerment, Zach embraces a negative, one-star review from one of his listeners and explains why it was impossible for the show to not evolve and change with him. Zach quotes Andy Frisella’s sentiment that says in order to be successful, you have to be humble in your approach and cocky in your execution. Listen in for an episode that will streamline your struggles against change.   Show Notes: https://underdogempowerment.com/response-to-change   Get More Involved:    Leave A Review & Subscribe On iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/underdog-empowerment/id1373572178 Free A-to-Z roadmap on launching a top-shelf podcast: https://underdogempowerment.com/roadmap Access Our Top Resource Recommendations: https://underdogempowerment.com/resources/ Subscribe On YouTube: https://underdogempowerment.com/youtube
