One of My Deepest Struggles… And Its Gifts

I’ve got this dichotomy inside of me:

On the one hand, I know deep in my heart, body, soul, and mind, that my work is really good. That the work is super-valuable and transformational.

Quickie Coaching Tip for Helping Clients with Self-Sabotage

Here is a Universal Truth that is important to know:

When you (or your clients) start stepping into a new goal, a new vision, a new belief or a new way of being, your ego will always, in one way or another, pretty immediately ask – “But HOW? HOW will I reach that goal? HOW will I let go of that pattern? HOW will I make it all happen?”

This is just your ego’s way of distracting you (read: sabotaging you), by demanding that you know HOW. READ MORE
