Overcoming Self-Sabotage

On the Profitable Joyful Consulting podcast, I teach you how to increase your profits and enjoy your business more. In this episode, you’ll learn how to overcome self-sabotage.

What would be possible for you if you didn’t get in your own way? What kind of results could you get in your business and for your clients?

I had a client who was writing her speeches the night before big keynotes – and they never went as well as she wanted them to. I once was in the habit of making really bad hiring mistakes. I’ve had clients exhaust themselves in pursuit of doubling their business.

These are all different, but they’re all examples of self-sabotage.

It may be an unconventional one, but overcoming self-sabotage is a vital growth strategy for your business. When you learn to work with your Saboteur, you unleash possibilities.

Some key areas covered in this episode:

  • Self-sabotage isn’t what it seems like on the surface. There’s a spiritual and energetic perspective to it, which I cover here with Spiritual Director (and my husband) Christopher Carrick.
  • Why we sabotage ourselves – how we disguise it from ourselves – and how we can stop doing it, so we can be the productive, effective people we know ourselves to be.
  • You don’t have to exhaust yourself in the process of doubling your business. Exhaustion is actually one of several sly sabotage strategies we reveal.
  • “I’d never do that to myself.” Find out the sneaky way powerful, confident people sabotage themselves.
  • The role of the unconscious and the ego in self-sabotage — and how to better understand the voice of your own inner saboteur.
  • With the right awareness and tools, dealing with self-sabotage can actually be kind of fun (I said “kind of”!) and doesn’t have to be shaming. We share simple exercises to take back control and get out of your own way.
