Ep 67: Self-Sabotage

Are you tired of setting big, unrealistic goals for yourself only to feel discouraged when you don’t achieve them?

In this heartfelt conversation, Meg chats with Psychologist and author Dr Rebecca Ray about how often we set ourselves up for failure and self-sabotage without even realising it.

The two discuss how change and growth come from small, consistent actions in a society that encourages people to aim for extreme goals and accomplishments. Tune in for a refreshing perspective on making lasting changes in your life, one habit at a time.

In this conversation we discuss

▫️ What is self-sabotage, and why do we do it

▫️ How starting small can create lasting change

▫️ The dangers of setting unrealistic goals

▫️ And so much more…

You can quote us on that…

“The habits that count are the ones that we actually do every single day.” 

Dr Rebecca Ray

“Self-sabotage disconnects you from who want to be.”

Dr Rebecca Ray

“The people that we spend time with can also influence how much we believe in our capacity for change.”
