Getting Out of Your Own Way—Aaron Velky – EP 199


Are you sabotaging yourself? In this episode, host Ian Lobas & Aaron Velky reveal why everyone gets in their own way in some capacity and what to do about it.

They discuss how our days can get filled with one distraction after the other and they guide us through the process of auditing our patterns and routines to detect when this is happening. These business partners show us how to detect blindspots and develop an awareness of the fears that are leaving us frozen and stuck.

If you’ve ever told yourself that you’re not ready for an opportunity that’s staring you in the face, this is the episode for you. Ian and Aaron explain the importance of becoming the kind of person who can be confident about sustaining success.
