Episode 147: How to Get Out of Your Own Way and Get What You Want with Sarah K. Peck

Have you been feeling a bit stuck lately, wondering what comes next? 

Saying to yourself that there has to be more

If so, you’re not alone.

That’s because I’ve been asking myself these questions lately, too. I’ve noticed that whenever I’m in this place for too long, it usually means I’m looking for the “right answer.” I’m trying to find the “perfect” next step. 

I’m wrapped up in fear, doubt, and insecurity. 

Those feelings are not uncommon when you’re stuck. But when it becomes a pattern—fear, doubt, and insecurity lead to staying stuck and staying stuck leads to those feelings—that’s when getting out of your own way gets tricky. 

This month, I’m continuing this month’s theme of Being Human with Sarah Kathleen Peck. Sarah is the founder and CEO of Startup Parent and the host of The Startup Parent Podcast, where she helps working parents try to navigate everyday insanity. 

Listen to the full episode to hear:

  • There are two types of people: those who know what they want and they’re having a hard time going after it and those who are stuck and don’t know what they want
  • Why we all know the answer to what comes next—we just need to get out of our own way
  • What I really want to do and how I keep getting in my own way
  • How our culture has brainwashed us into pushing, pushing, pushing when sometimes the best thing to do is pull back
