Dealing with Self-Sabotage, with Rob Scott
Rob Scott comes from a broken family, which is all too common in today’s world. After watching his parents’ marriage fall apart, and essentially being treated like Cinderella as the new family came in, he harbored a lot of pain and anger growing up. This traumatic experience created a burning desire in him to help others avoid the same struggles. He became a counselor at heart and many of his friends would come to him for advice on improving their relationships with others. Encouraged by the success his friends experienced from his natural wisdom and insight, his passion for helping others became a lifelong pursuit. He dove into all things related to personal growth and over the years he used that knowledge in different industries to help others in various ways. But he was getting burnt out. He would see great growth in those who came to him for advice, and yet nothing seemed to work for him when he tried it for himself. Despite his best efforts, he kept reverting to the patterns modeled in his family that would lead to more pain and anger. Until forgiveness stepped in. Forgiveness wasn’t a foreign concept to a man raised in the church. But it wasn’t until he learned about and experienced the science of forgiveness and its ability to resolve the unresolved conflicts from one’s past, that it truly changed his life forever. Forgiveness was the missing link. At that moment, he realized this was what he was meant to do! Forgiveness is what people needed to truly heal in the way he was healed. So he dropped all other career pursuits and opened a brand new business, right in the middle of a pandemic! Not only has he been able to break the chains of trauma from his past and move forward, but he has also built a thriving business helping others do the same. Rob believes that forgiveness is the most powerful force for healing and change on earth. His mission is to see the world experience the power of forgiveness, one person at a time. What you will learn in this episode: How self-sabotage is a control issue at its core How intention should align with action to achieve a certain result Why our different perceptions can be a challenge What our comfort zones have to do with self-sabotage What are the two different types of forgiveness, and how do they impact our lives How Rob has experienced limiting beliefs in his life What is one step you can take to decrease self-sabotage Resources: Connect with Rob on his website: https://www.theforgivenesslink.com/ (https://www.theforgivenesslink.com/) Free Insight Session: https://www.theforgivenesslink.com/freesession (https://www.theforgivenesslink.com/freesession) Connect with Rob on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-scott-a4152132/ (https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-scott-a4152132/) Connect with Rob on Faceboohttps://www.facebook.com/theforgivenesslink/ (k: https://www.facebook.com/theforgivenesslink/) Additional Resources: https://www.amazon.com/Slaying-Onion-Unveil-highest-potential-ebook/dp/B094C6S7RZ/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1CQSDOLNATAJ7&dchild=1&keywords=april+ballestero+slaying+the+onion&qid=1624598750&sprefix=april+balleste%2Caps%2C199&sr=8-1 (Slaying the Onion Book ) https://www.onelightacademy.com/courses/slaying-the-onion (Buy Slaying the Onion Book here) and receive a signed copy, the course, and access to a community This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Podcorn - https://podcorn.com/privacy Podtrac - https://analytics.podtrac.com/privacy-policy-gdrp
