Workshop Timing

Tuesday, July 9, 2024 : Central Time

This transformative workshop is designed to empower your mindset and catalyze profound personal growth. “Clearing Self-Sabotage and Limiting Beliefs” is intended for individuals who are determined to break free from the chains of self-imposed limitations and negative patterns that hinder their true potential. This 3-hour immersive experience will guide you through understanding the root causes of self-sabotage and limiting beliefs, offering you effective strategies and practical tools to overcome these barriers.

In a supportive and interactive environment, you’ll learn how to identify the subtle yet impactful ways you may be holding yourself back. Whether it’s fear, frustration, or doubt, these emotions often lead to behaviors that keep us stuck in a cycle of unfulfillment and underachievement. Attendees will embark on a path to rewire thinking patterns, foster resilience, and cultivate a mindset geared towards success.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify Self-Sabotaging Behaviors and Beliefs: Gain clarity on the personal habits, thoughts, and emotions that constitute self-sabotage in your life. Understand the difference between self-protection mechanisms and self-sabotage.
  • Understand the Origins of Limiting Beliefs: Dive deep into the sources of your limiting beliefs, learning how past experiences, social conditioning, and fear of the unknown contribute to the development of these mental barriers.
  • Develop Self-Awareness and Mindfulness: Cultivate a heightened sense of self-awareness and mindfulness, enabling you to observe your thoughts and behaviors without judgment, thus creating a foundation for change.
  • Rewire Thinking Patterns: Develop techniques to challenge and replace negative thought patterns with empowering beliefs.
  • Implement Effective Strategies to Overcome Fear and Procrastination: Discover and apply practical strategies to confront and manage fear, anxiety, and procrastination, which often underlie self-sabotaging behaviors.
  • Foster Resilience and Inner Power: Strengthen your resilience to setbacks and cultivate an inner power that propels you forward, enabling you to approach life’s challenges with confidence.
