    How To Stop "Uprooting," The Self-Sabotaging Behavior That Prevents You From Really Blossoming

    How To Stop "Uprooting," The Self-Sabotaging Behavior That Prevents You From Really Blossoming

    Books by Brianna ➝ https://shopc.at/uprooting

    One of the most common (and damaging) self-sabotaging behaviors, uprooting is what happens when we can't stay the course with anything. It's a pattern of moving, changing jobs, shifting friends, relationships, having big ideas, but minimal follow-through. In this episode, we discuss what "uprooting" is, how to identify it, and ultimately, how to know whether it's time to stay or time to go.

    When Self-Care Is Actually What's Holding You Back

    When Self-Care Is Actually What's Holding You Back

    Books by Brianna ➝ https://shopc.at/holding-you-back

    In this episode, we discuss the difference between what it really means to take care of yourself, and the ever-popular consumerism version of "self-care," and how it's actually just a means of avoiding the real problems in our lives. In the end, real self-care is the choice to build a life we do not need to escape from.

    3 Limiting Beliefs That Are Holding You Back From Your Own Success

    3 Limiting Beliefs That Are Holding You Back From Your Own Success

    Books by Brianna ➝ https://shopc.at/limiting-beliefs

    Sometimes, self-sabotage manifests simply as a limiting or underdeveloped belief process that we never took the time to really evaluate. In this episode, we discuss the most common limiting beliefs that are holding you back, such as that there can only be so much good in life before it's "balanced out by the bad," or that you must be the best to to be "good enough," or that change is impossible, because it's never been successful before.

Outstanding!

Great content in the realm of ‘self paralysis’ and owning your own ups and downs. BRAVO!! Thank you for sharing your well spoken wisdom.

Fantastic!

This is hands down the most profound podcast I’ve listened to. I am a podcast junkie and I’ve received more wisdom out of these few episodes than in all the shows/episodes I’ve listened to since I’ve started listening to podcasts! Brianna words are insightful and thought provoking. I plan to listen to them all again, this time - journal in hand to take notes so I can implement the steps to create positive change in my life. I’m also taking her up on her book recommendation - Meg Jay’s The Defining Decade and giving it to my soon to be 20 year olds!

Mind blowing!

Thank you for doing what you do Brianna. I have been struggling trying to understand why I’m sabotaging myself or as I used to say holding myself back. Until I heard about uprooting I didn’t know that was a thing. You brought me so much awareness and now that I know what it is and when I’m doing it, I can come in and change it. It’s not easy but the awareness really blow my mind open to start making the right decisions and to learn to be comfortable with challenges and question my emotions that rise. Thank you so much!!
