I hope that you enjoyed this interview. Here are my 3 insights for thriving:
- No one is immune to the inner saboteurs. We don’t need to judge ourselves for it; it doesn’t mean that we are bad, or broken or that something is wrong with us. It means that we are human.
- The Saboteurs are like stow-aways on our journey. Sometimes we may not be aware that they are there but they consume our resources: our time, our attention and our energy.
- Everyone can learn to quiet their saboteurs. It begins with awareness. If you are interested in learning more about your saboteurs, you can go to positiveintelligence.com and read more about this research AND take the free assessment. Rick and I both have taken it and that’s what led us to become huge believers and students of the process and why we’ve added it into our coaching system.
