The 7 Most Common Ways Women Limit (and Sabotage) Their Success

Every day, I see recurring patterns and themes around how women chronically undervalue or undermine themselves, leaving money on the table and sabotaging their own growth and success. While I’m not an academic social researcher, I have seen through my own research and training that men do not typically limit their professional growth in the same ways. I realize that I am generalizing here, but after nine years of consulting with over 10,000 women to help them “power up and speak up” for what they want, deserve and require, I’ve seen these assertions hold up. And I’ve faced and addressed each and every one of these limits myself.

Lisa Firestone: Stop the Blame Game to Improve Your Relationship. When it comes to placing blame in a relationship, it's almost always easier to see the faults in our partner than in ourselves.

Lisa Firestone: Stop the Blame Game to Improve Your Relationship

One of the problems with couples pointing fingers is that usually both parties are right, and both are wrong. Every person is full of flaws and certain ways that we attempt to defend ourselves that push us away from other people. These self-protective defenses come out even stronger when we get close to someone, and old feelings start to get triggered in us in ways we don't necessarily expect and aren't entirely conscious of. The many ways we get hurt throughout our lives help shape our defenses. Negative past experiences, particularly those from our childhood, leave us on guard as adults. In improving any relationship, the focus should always be on empowering yourself. Lisa Firestone: How to Be Your Own Couples Therapist.
