Self-Sabotage: The Fear of Success
Is your unconscious fear of success holding you back?
My client, Beverly, was incredibly capable, but found herself
continuously sabotaging her success. She would get close to
her goal, whether it was weight loss or her creative endeavors,
and suddenly revert back to old behavior.
It was like a wet blanket was thrown on her drive toward her goal.
Her inner critic would then show up, and she would have self-talk
such as "Who do you think you are?" Beverly did not believe that
she was allowed to be successful. She didn't know what to do.
That is until she found me. During her first session, she was
able to recognized her pattern of self-sabotage. She had a fear
of success, but couldn't readily identify the source of the problem.
Her initial session lasted for 90 minutes, during which she
remembered that whenever she was successful, her parents would
no longer help her. When she learned how to bake cookies, for
example, her mother was happy and relieved to turn the responsibility over to her.
She subconsciously didn't want to loose her support group with her success, therefore
she routinely sabotaged her success in order to feel less anxious.
Yet, she felt frustrated knowing that she was repeating
the same vicious cycle over and over again. It was only during EFT
sessions that these patterns became clear.
Is something holding you back? Let's talk.
Adonai Group Inc., is hosting a 3 hour seminar on “Overcoming Loss”. The session is limited to 16 participants who will be fortunate to
attend this life-changing seminar. This means, of course, that those special few are going
to get a lot more personal attention and specific problem-solving interaction than can
typically be delivered in our always-oversold classes. So if you’ve ever considered how
you will be able to go on, now’s the time.
As a matter of fact, just to make sure
that this session stays small (an announcement like this could trigger a ton of
registrations), we're limiting this session to only 16 students. Consequently, the
online registration interface has been programmed to accept no more than 16 students
for this special, high-touch session. What an opportunity.
Don't wait, register today.
