Are you afraid of other peoples opinions of you? Do you always seem to attract folks who need rescuing?
Well…you just might be a people pleaser.
Quite a few people who come through LifePlan struggle with being a people pleaser and finding their worth in the acceptance of other people. It can control them.
When your life always revolves around being a people pleaser you actually end up losing life. It robs you of your authentic self
and it all comes from a persons root system. It’s the stuff that’s deeply ingrained in you.
In today’s show I look at 10 signs you may be a people pleaser.
On todays show we are talking about the Emotional Bell Curve and controlling your emotions.
This topic was sparked by a recent temper tantrum I witnessed on the race track which resulted in a driver being kicked out of the championship race. He lost his cool. He didn’t control his emotions.
He’s not alone! Many of us have a hard time controlling our emotional response in negative situations. Well..the Emotional Bell Curve will soon become your best friend when you need to control your emotions.

Self-sabotage is one of the greatest limiting factors to how successful you can be in business and life! And the crazy thing is, most people have absolutely no clue that they self-sabotage.
Self-sabotage is one of the most destructive patterns I see in LifePlan no matter who the person is, where they come from, what their background is, or what their work position is.
While so many people define self-sabotage as alcohol abuse, drug abuse, and over-eating, there are a bunch of other ways we self-sabotage. Some are socially recognizable and judged according to a social scale, and others aren’t as easily understood.
Here are a few ways that we tend to hurt ourselves by self-sabotage:
Today we’re diving into Part 2 of the 10 Signs You’re Not Emotionally Strong and have recapped all 10 of the signs. If you missed the last Chris LoCurto Show, listen here: https://soundcloud.com/chrislocurto/chris-locurto-show-being-emotionally-strong-part-1
What does it mean to be emotionally strong? Other peoples actions can’t tear you down or affect you or stress you out. You don’t have problems making decisions and you’re content with life. You’re happy and everything in your world is going well. Even if there are struggles or problems, you’re able to get through decision making processes and be strong.
I have the blessing of coaching people pretty much every week of my life. And yet, coaching is not what I would have said I’d being doing when I was younger. After years of coaching people, I can say it never gets old!
This past week in one of my sessions I worked with a company who’s owner was struggling with time due to death by a thousand slashes. He has so many disruptions in his day he finds himself at times working until 4AM to solve problems.
As you can imagine, he’s considerably frustrated with time lost both in his business and his personal life. And just like all of us, he has incredibly legit reasons why it’s like this.
Here are just 7 things I shared with him to gain control of his time, which in turn will make the company more money. They’ll do the same for you…
Your life equals your root system.
Your life and your decision making process comes from your root system. In LifePlan, I spend time tying what’s happened in a persons life to their root system – family, influences, leadership, friends, etc. Whatever has happened in your past shapes the decisions you make today.
The lies that we’re told, the lies we tell ourselves, and the lies we believe hold us back.
When you’re told specific lies from people you love, like parents or family, those words hold you back from becoming something greater or believing in yourself or becoming an entrepreneur or fill in the blank.
Why do people we love tell us lies?
ailure is inevitable! You’re going to fail! And the great thing is, it’s absostinkinlutely ok!
In LifePlan, StratPlan, and coaching, the fear of failure is one of the biggest issues I face with so many clients. Whether it’s a team member or a leader, a large portion of our population is afraid of failing.
It’s not good enough for me to say it’s ok to fail, because those who are afraid have been taught that it’s NOT ok. They’ve been taught by parents, teachers, leaders, etc. that failure is unacceptable, and in may situation, punishable.
