Jordan Goldrich: The Big Leap - A Different View of Self-Sabotage

Episode 56


In this episode, Jordan discusses:

  • “Imposter Syndrome” and self-sabotage

  • What is our upper limit?

  • Four reasons why we have an upper limit

  • A different way of responding to our upper limit internal conversation

Key Takeaways

  • Many high-level leaders struggle with a voice in their head that says that they’re not as good as people think they are and that they should be concerned if people find out.

  • Our upper limit is a conscious or unconscious thermostat that regulates the amount of success, love, money, and abundance that we’re entitled to.

  • There are four reasons why we have an upper limit. The first is that we are fundamentally flawed, second is the fear that we are being disloyal to your roots or the people from your past, third is the believe that success brings a bigger burden and lastly, the crime of outshining - talented children are given a lot of attention and they learn that they shouldn’t steal attention from others.

  • Rather than trying to heal our internal wounds or change our internal conversation, we should reflect to identify what positive state is trying to break through.

“I started considering what positive things are trying to break through even though I was feeling self doubts, or I was feeling unsuccessful, or that I didn't fit in. It ended up making a real big difference for me.”— Jordan Goldrich
