When a Reeeaaaaalllly Old Story Is Holding You Back

This one is pretty weird, I have to admit. But it’s come up for me and a number of clients, so I put together this video to tell you a bit about how a strange kind of “inheritance” caused me to procrastinate and what I did about it.

You might have a similar cause of procrastination if:

  • You’ve taken care of everything you can think of and something is still holding you back,
  • You feel like there’s an odd energy that gets in the way of your taking action,
  • There’s a story of someone in your family who was prevented from reaching their big goal or goals.

If any of that sounds like you (or you’re just curious), watch the video to find out more about what this is and how to take care of it.

Don’t let someone else’s story stop you! When you’re ready to stop procrastinating and create the life you are meant to live, email me. We’ll set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and see if I can help.

Resources for Gifted Procrastinators

A while back I posted a video about how growing up “gifted” (in the sense of having a high IQ) has caused procrastination in a number of my clients. The video caught the attention of Rosemary Davies-Janes, who recognized that a lot of the business owners she consults with are also gifted, and—as counterintuitive as that may seem—it has caused them a lot of problems, too.

After comparing notes, Rosemary and I teamed up to put together a website specifically to help gifted business owners. Nothing to buy there, just some resources to help understand what issues growing up gifted can cause and some ways to manage the problems so you can make the most of your strengths.

By the way, most people who are gifted don’t believe they are. So if you wonder if you might be gifted yourself—or are just curious about how being gifted could possibly cause problems—watch the video.

Then check out the quiz at CursesandGifts.com. It identifies number of unexpected problems that are common among gifted business owners. And it’s a lot of fun.
