Is Your Story Holding You Back?

How to turn limiting beliefs into empowering stories.

The stories we believe about ourselves can empower us, inspire us, and sustain us. They can also hold us back.

In this episode, Cathy explores how our stories shape our identity and our experience including:

  • A personal story of how a faulty set of limiting beliefs contributed to a professional and personal crisis.
  • How our stories become embedded in our identity and how that can be both empowering and limiting.
  • How to recognize and question your limiting beliefs and create more empowering ones.
  • The key to finding lasting freedom from the stories that hold you back.

You can find an adapted transcript of this podcast at Cathy’s blog, Field Notes.
