Success: Why Do Some People Sabotage Their Success?

Monday, March 31st, 2014

Whilst growth and progress are what many human beings seek, it doesn’t mean that this is what always takes place for them. There are some things that one might be able to achieve without too much trouble and others things that can always seem to remain out of their grasp.

This is a story about anxiety and truly being you.

Recently, my friend had a presentation, “Being Yourself”. What surprised me was how he has approached the topic and his problems with anxiety. After the meeting, we spent some time talking about his presentation. Here is what he had to say:

“This was a presentation where I wanted to give some facts on two of my problems: having anxiety and being me. This was my way of stating the fact that not being myself — not fulfilling my needs — goes very well withanxiety”.

I asked: “Could you please clarify your statement”?
