107 Things Women Should Stop Doing If They Want Success

September 04, 2020

Here is my list of 107 things women should stop doing if they want to reach their full potential. You may be doing a few of these right now.

Self-sabotage - Let me count the many ways that we can block ourselves from accomplishing the goals we've set in our lives. The crazy thing about self-sabotage is that it doesn't have to be anything big. It can be just a limiting belief here or a few days of procrastination there, and before you know it your months off from the deadline you've given yourself.

In my Women Dream Builders' Program, I talk extensively about how we don't set-up certain areas of our lives in the proper way to help us accomplish our goals. Here, I want to focus on those everyday things that we often do, and sometimes overlook, which can be detrimental to our mental and physical health. These are the things that take us out of the game before we even get the nerve to start. And if you're lucky to start working on your goals, these things will cause you to quit before you reach the finish line.     

Let me know in the comments how many of these 107 things women should stop doing if they want success you've done.
