One of the things I’ve learned in my years of coaching, NLP training, and positive psychology is that people routinely underestimate what they can accomplish.
This might sound like self sabotaging behaviours, but it might be that a person simply doesn’t have the strategies to make the progress they want.
This often shows up in the form of making excuses.
Any of these sound familiar?
“I want to do XYZ… but there’s no way I could actually do it.”
