I hope so, because this is something we are all guilty of. Yep-today on the show, we're talking about how to know where you need to grow. And then I get to sit down with my good friend and bestselling author Ian Cron to learn about the Enneagram and how you can understand your weaknesses and what you need to work on. What You Don't Know Can't Hurt You We all have blind spots, don't we? When we start to look at the blind spots in our lives, we open up so many opportunities for growth. It's not a fun process, but it's an opportunity to grow in maturity, wisdom and faith. But we can't grow and mature if we don't know the areas where we need to grow and mature. So today, we're going to talk about three tips that will help you identify your blind spots and areas you need to grow in so you can become the person you were created to be.
