Could your biggest obstacle be something even you can't see?
Do you have a hard time getting or staying motivated around fitness and health habits?
You would defend that yes, you want to be fit, you want to be active and eat well and know you would feel better … but you seem to start and stop.
You want to be someone who gets up in the morning or goes for a walk every afternoon, who orders healthfully at restaurants even when others don’t. But you can’t quite get there.
What if something you never suspected could be your biggest obstacle to weight loss, optimal energy, or ultimately your best life?
Today’s episode visits a recurring theme of emotions that could be tied to your self-sabotage and be a form of self-protection. Let's unpack your biggest obstacle.
Dr. Debi Silber, founder of The PBTInstitute, is a Transformational Psychologist and a health, mindset, and personal development expert. She's an award-winning speaker, coach and author of the Amazon #1 Bestselling book: The Unshakable Woman: 4 Steps to Rebuilding Your Body, Mind and Life After a Life Crisis, The Unshakable Woman-The Workbook (the companion guide to the book) as well as 2 books recommended by Brian Tracy, Marshall Goldsmith and Jack Canfield.
Her doctoral study led to two discoveries around how women experience and heal from betrayal. Based on her findings, along with 27 years of health, mindset and lifestyle coaching, she's created a proven approach to help women heal (physically, mentally and emotionally) from a life crisis, specializing in betrayal.
In this episode Debi reveals how this biggest obstacle to personal growth might be the biggest breakthrough.
In Debi's words:
"When we trust someone, we believe we can be vulnerable, we’re loved, protected, valued and safe. We believe that the other person has the same values, beliefs and level of integrity that we have. We believe that they’re honoring the same agreement, sharing the same priorities, and living by the same rules. We believe those we’ve given our trust to would never do anything to violate that sacred contract… until they do. This is the powerful and painful process of betrayal."
