    Self-Doubt: Why You Aren’t Making Progress on Your Goals and What to Do About It – Episode 11

    Procrastination, people pleasing, perfectionism…we’ve all succumbed to these many times, often to our detriment. We think it’s just part of our nature, or something that might take willpower to fix. But what if these were really symptoms of something else? What if they were in fact indicators that it’s time to look deeper? Listen in as we explore how self-doubt can be preventing us from making progress and living life to the fullest.
    This week we’re doing another non-book episode all about self-doubt and self-belief.
    We’ll talk about:
    1) What self-doubt is and where it comes from

And how can we foster this type of thinking in us now? Listen in as we explore how even the most complacent among us can be a little more original.
