86. Overcoming Self-Sabotage

86. Overcoming Self-Sabotage

Today we are going to talk about self-sabotage. Self-sabotage is a common phenomenon that affects many individuals in various aspects of their lives. It is a pattern of behavior where individuals unknowingly undermine their own success or well-being.

Believe me, I know that being visible can challenge you to step out of your comfort zone. Even when you know that you should be more visible, there is still the worry of making a mistake or failing that holds you back. Fear is so powerful and can take over if you let it. You prevent yourself from taking the actions that you need to do because of that fear, which is also known as self-sabotage.

What if you saw self-sabotage as something that is trying to help you instead of holding you back? How would that impact what you do next?

In this episode:

  • In what ways does self-sabotage manifest itself for people
  • What does self-sabotage look like in a work situation?
  • What are the root causes of self-sabotage and how does it impact you as a leader?
  • How does impostor syndrome play a role in self-sabotage?
  • Tips that you can use to build awareness to overcome self-sabotage.
  • Excerpt from The Visibility Factor book on self-sabotage
  • Quotes from a book called The Mountain is You that focuses on self-sabotage and how it shows up for us.
  • Now that you have awareness of self-sabotage, what will be different for you?
