Episode details

Do you have a need to please?

People-pleasing is caused by a combination of our thoughts, feelings, and habits. These three symptoms of people-pleasing operate together, which is why people-pleasing can become a vicious, emotional cycle.

Breaking the people-pleasing cycle can be tough. It's hard to recognize it as a problem at first. But if you find yourself feeling depleted, resentful, and angry often — your people-pleasing mindset might be to blame.

But I'm here to tell you that no matter how long you've been suffering with a people-pleasing mindset, you can rewire your brain by paying attention to your thoughts, regulating your emotions effectively and most importantly — challenging your inner belief system.

This episode walks you through what causes the people-pleasing mindset, how it holds you back at work and in your personal life, and the steps you can take to break the people-pleasing cycle.
