Encore Episode: What if the Barriers Were Only in Your Head? [Podcast]

Defeating Limiting Beliefs in the 3 Major Areas of Life

The podcast is currently on hiatus while we design a new and improved show. We’ll be airing some fan favorites in the meantime and will debut the new format in the new year. So stay tuned! Today, we have one of our most popular episodes to share with you. Enjoy this listener favorite!

In this episode, Stu McLaren (who filled in for my regular cohost Michele Cushatt) and I discussed how to defeat the beliefs that are holding you back.

Most of the things that hold us back are not external. They’re inside our heads and hearts, the limiting beliefs that keep us from making meaningful progress toward our goals—or even setting those goals to begin with.

My favorite part of doing these podcasts is participating in the conversation they provoke. Each week, I ask one question. This week, it is this:

Question: What are some areas in life where you’re unsatisfied? Are there any limited beliefs about yourself, others, or the world that are keeping you stuck?
