E12 – High Achiever? Stop Self-Sabotaging! (with Vikki Louise)

If you’ve ever told yourself things like “Now’s not the right time for that” or “I’ll never be good enough”, then this episode with Anxiety & Procrastination Coach and Time Hacker Vikki Louise will be perfect for you! Vikki is helping people to regain back control when their biggest enemy (their own brain) is bringing them down and keeping them from achieving their goals.

In this episode, we’ll talk about Vikki’s career and her coaching program, but also about anxiety, guilt, impostor syndrome and the very paralyzing fear of failing. Those are some very common traits that high-achievers are exhibiting when the stakes are high both professionally and personally. And all of this has been heightened by the circumstances brought about by the current pandemic.

So if you want to learn more about how to efficiently deal with all those, then tune in!
