    I listened to bits of this interview and I WILL be back to listen to the entire thing. I liked your piece about visibility blocks. Procrastination and perfectionism are certainly two that came to mind for me. Sometimes we are so close to our ‘stuff’ that it can be difficult to overcome these limiting beliefs. That’s where coaches like us come in. You did a fabulous job with this interview, Stephanie!

      Hi Tandy –
      Thanks for taking a listen. Visibility blocks can be real stinkers because they hide in other limiting beliefs and self sabotage can sneak up quite unexpectedly. Procrastination and perfectionism are both strong ones for many. You have such important work to do, though! What techniques do you use personally to clear away the “stinkin thinking” so that you can let your light shine its brightest?

    I like your comments about reviewing the day before retiring for the night. I plan to start doing this. I’d like to invite you to take a look at my last 3 posts on my blog. You mentioned the fear of success in this podcast. That’s something I’ve struggled with for years, & I wrote about my determination to overcome it. I’ve also shared some git-r-done tools I picked up a few years back.

    Great interview. I hope it brings you more recognition.

      Hi Eric! Thanks for listening in! Love that you are working through your fear of success. That is one that many don’t know that they have and often will even argue that it is there. (I did for a while myself!) Feel free to share your posts here in a comment. I know your experiences would help my readers too.
