I recall that my very first article that I wrote for the popular press back in the late 1980's was about something we called the "Inferiority Complex." I wrote it because I saw so many people who doubted themselves, felt under-confident, and felt like they didn't measure up. The issues however haven't changed. All that has changed is that we've altered the name to "Self-Sabotage."
In fact, I observe that as life has become more hectic (since about the mid 1970's), and we've become more stressed and "time poor," that somehow or other we've also gotten "better" at self-sabotage. It has so become so common-place in my coaching practice, that I finally wrote the book last year.

We owe it to ourselves not to settle for second best...
