Barriers to Performing Well at Work
Do you find it hard to take action on the things
you want most?
We are often our own biggest challenge. Researchers
have found that only 3.6 percent of our actions
are controlled by the conscious mind. That means
96.4 percent of our thoughts and actions are in
the control of the non-conscious mind — really
out of our control. It's a "no-brainer." In the
world of peak performance, we must clear the hidden
self-defeating thoughts and replace them with
those that guarantee our success.
Professionals at all levels of the corporate
ladder and in their own small businesses sometimes
find themselves caught up in inner turmoil or
plagued by an inability to act. These issues often
have their roots in unconscious attitudes, negative
self-talk or old beliefs.
I have been privileged to train with London-based
Sandra Foster, Ph.D., who is a licensed psychologist,
a renowned executive coach and
one of the premier experts in the field of performance
enhancement in the world of work and

- "I can't keep this going."
- "Is it OK to be more successful than my father?"
- "I can't handle supervising my former coworkers
now that I've been promoted."
- "Sooner or later, they'll find out that I'm
in over my head." (Imposter Syndrome)
Foster's training has provided the foundation
for my own work with business professionals on
issues such as:
- Job performance
- Unreasonable expectations
- Fear of failure, incompetence or success
People's negative beliefs are usually non-conscious.
They will sabotage themselves to quell these worries
and to feel safe. Removing these negative beliefs
allows people to achieve their goals and fulfill
I have helped my clients overcome many such beliefs,
- I messed up last quarter. I'm scared
it'll happen again.
- I have to know everything
or else it's just not good enough.
- If I get more
successful, I won't be able to sustain it.
have to work early and late and weekends to
stay on top of this job.
- I can't do anything
- My father
wanted me to be a lawyer. I never thought about
- This seemed like a
good way to make money, but I'm really not cut
out for this work.

probably more common than you think — and they're

I have used Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to
help hundreds of clients, including business owners,
public speakers and those who work in the high-stress
industry of finance, to find higher levels of
achievement or relief from chronic problems.

method is now being supplemented with well-documented
results as researchers begin to understand
the science behind EFT.

demons present themselves in your life, EFT can
help you get past them — quickly, easily and permanently.
You will experience dramatic change in how you
view yourself, your goals, and your ability to
move freely toward them. Your performance will
show it — and you will experience more satisfaction
with yourself and with your work.
The technique is flexible and adaptable and can
