Permission to Succeed: Why we self-sabotage & how we can stop
February 28 @ 12:15 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Do you feel that sometimes you are your own worst enemy? Is there a goal you have had for a long time but you just don’t make it? Do you catch yourself binge-watching Netflix when you are almost done with an important project, overspending when are really close to reaching your savings goal, or quitting exercise when your weight goal is just a few pounds away?
The reasons why we self-sabotage are complex. Most of them are rooted in fear of failure—but sometimes we are also afraid to succeed. Getting to the bottom of these reasons is key to changing our self-sabotaging behavior.
In this workshop, we will talk about why we self-sabotage, the different ways in which self-sabotage manifests in people’s lives, and how we can leave it behind. You will leave with an actionable list of strategies and tools that can help you make positive changes and strengthen confidence in yourself and your work.
This workshop is for everybody who …
… is ready to bring awareness to the issue of self-sabotage and the underlying reasons.
… wants to take control of negative thoughts and habits and initiate a positive change.
… needs some input and strategies to get stuff done and let themselves rise to their potential.
