Breaking Through Your Upper Limits

entrepreneurship podcast Jul 30, 2021

So this week we are going to continue with the theme of upper limit issues, which refers to the unconscious habits we have that keep us from experiencing all the health, happiness and success we are striving for.  Two weeks ago, we talked about how to identify these upper limit issues- what they are, what purpose they serve and how they got into our unconscious minds to begin with.  In this episode, we are going to discuss the categories of behavior that let us know when we are “upper-limiting” ourselves. The good news is that there really aren’t that many of them and once you see them for what they are, you won’t be able to ignore them again. 

If you are a driven woman who is working hard, doing all the things, but just can’t seem to reach her goals on a consistent basis, you are already aware that something is getting in your way and suspect you are holding yourself back somehow. If you want to play a bigger game, make more money and have a bigger impact, you are going to love this episode. Just to give you a sneak peek, so you are gonna want to listen all the way to the end, here are the categories of upper limit behaviors to watch out for:

  • Worry
  • Blame & Criticism
  • Deflection
  • Arguments 
  • Illness 

If you have been listening to The DrIven Woman Podcast for more than an episode or two, you already know that I am very direct and pretty outspoken.  One of my favorite clients calls me “The Speaker of Uncomfortable Truths” and I think that’s pretty accurate.  You might feel a bit called out in this episode, but it’s because I seriously want you to have an amazing business, life and relationship and know you aren’t going to have any of those things if you are upper-limiting yourself.  If you are working your ass off to achieve your goals but something always seems to get in the way, it just might be your upper limits.
