EP 141 - Stop Self-Sabotage
As human beings, we are predisposed to self-sabotage. Humans are wired to attain rewards and avoid threat, so our inclination to panic and avoid threatening situations is actually a evolutionary benefit.

However, when we develop a pattern of getting in our own way and not taking necessary risks to move forward, self-sabotage becomes a problem.

People tend to self-sabotage in one area of their life. To determine why you’re undermining your own intentions, check in with yourself to see if you're experiencing any of these LIFE issues.

  • Low or shaky self-concept
  • Internalized beliefs that hold you back
  • Fear of the unknown
  • Excess need for control
Once you understand where the negative voice comes from, Dr. Judy Ho explains how to create a blueprint for your life, which starts with outlining your values and aligning them with your goals.  

Listen as Dr. Ho joins Dr. Taz to discuss how to stop self-sabotaging.
