As I have built my business it has often been mindset issues which have slowed me down more than not knowing how to do something in a practical sense. Even in life in general I was hesitant to try things because I was fearful of the results - it's only as I have worked through issues of self-sabotage that I have seen remarkable changes happen in my own life.
Many of us struggle with self-sabotage and it's an area I have been writing about, and working with clients individually on, for a long time.
Some recent feedback for ths course:
"Thank you for this wonderful course, Alison. The format...and the succinct but informative modules, made it very easy to follow. Everyone can make time for this. So many valuable suggestions." M.P.
It's now time to bring the understanding I have reached on this to a wider audience.
Do you Struggle With Any of the Following?
If you recognize yourself in any of these then this course will help you explore the issues and then offer solutions which will move you forward - whether in business or in life. Self-sabotage can limit us in so many ways but it is possible to move past it.
In this video we look at our worries concerning what will happen if people don't like what we have created; our tendency to get into a perfection loop; and what we can do if we feel everyone has always said what we want to say or created what we intend to.
In this video we look at our concerns that if there is so much free content out there why would someone pay for what we have; we look at the worry about someone saying somehing negative about our work; and we look at the problems connected with not setting good boundaries.
In this video we look at procrastination; not getting enough help; and being beaten down by the numbers.

In this video we look at the importance of running a postive script in your head rather than a negative one and I outline a couple of practical steps which can help with this.
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or Tapping can be a great way to overcome some of the negative behaviours we experience related to self-sabotage. In this video we look at what EFT is, plus I point you towards some further helpful resources.
I also talk about the book The Tapping Solution by Nick Ortner and about the resources Brad Yates provides on YouTube and you can find out more about those at the links below.
Mindfulness is a great stress-buster and can help cancel out overwhelm and a cycle of worry. In this video we look at how to incorporate mindfulness into your life.
