“I’m sick again!!!” Like clockwork, I would get sick every time I was going after new big things in my life, both personally and professionally.
Not just a slight cold sick, I’m talking full-fledge stomach flu, sinus infection, walking pneumonia, or bronchitis. I would be knocked down out of commission for a solid week (at least!).
The anxiety was brutal, as it always happened right when I was building something new in my business, when I left my corporate career for entrepreneurship, launching new services/products, when I hired my business coach, and many times while I was in recovery for my exercise addiction, workaholism, and codependency.
I would get so pissed as I didn’t have time to be sick, especially right then. There was truly nothing I could do but obsess, overthink, and do my best to get better.
One of the first things I said to my spiritual coach 14 years ago, ( I hired him loooong before is was thing…so I literally told no one as I knew people would think I lost my damn mind) was me complaining that I kept getting sick every two months and it was so frustrating. His reply, “what you afraid of my dear?” Me afraid noooo, I’m a survivor, a baller, a hustler, I thought….
He explained that me getting sick was my body’s way of manifesting the fear messages in my brain…WHOA, WAIT, WHAT?
“You are subconsciously sabotaging your success, so we need to work on addressing those fears in order for your body to respond differently, and you will stop getting sick so often,” he gently explained with compassion.
Go listen to rest of this story and what unfolded let me know if you can identity with any of these self-sabotaging signs.
