1. Escaping the Trap of the High-Achiever Terry McDougall 15:46

As an Executive Coach, I've noted that when many high-achievers are faced with challenges they will double down on whatever they have done habitually to achieve their current level of success. This works very well until… it doesn't… but that doesn't mean that they ease off and step back to try to figure out what to do differently. In fact, their confidence will often take a hit because they thought they had a “formula” for success and are disappointed (in themselves) that they aren't achieving in the way that they had previously.

In today's episode, I'll share insights around the addiction that most high-achievers suffer from, at least until they understand it and consciously free themselves from its grip. I share exercises on how anyone can learn to trust themselves more and find the path to success, and also happiness.
