Ep065: Do the Trappings of Language Block You?

Has this ever happened to you?

You were pursuing a new interest, learning a new skill, or having what started as a normal conversation with someone and then suddenly…

You hit a wall…

An invisible wall…

Interest withers, learning stops, and conversations become adversarial.

You find yourself wondering, “What the heck happened?”

In this week’s episode, I’m going to invite you to consider whether you were trapped by the meaning you have adopted of a particular word.

It happened to me, and it may have happened to you.

Too often, we don’t realize the problem, and therefore, we can’t resolve it, and move on.



Have you identified words that put a barrier between you and your dreams? You can choose to relabel things to less inflammatory words (you could even just call it Steve) or keep repeating the word until it becomes a non-word to you.

The important thing to remember, is to pay attention when you feel like your forward momentum has stopped. The problem is most likely NOT what you think it is. 🙂
