PQ Podcast hosted by Charlie Jett: Breaking down the Brain Bullies blocking your potential, happiness, and success

The Avoider avoids difficult and unpleasant tasks and conflicts. It tells you to focus on the positive and pleasant things – but in an extreme way.

Individuals with the Avoider . . .
*Avoid conflict and say “yes” to things one would not normally want
*Downplay the importance of real problems and deflect others
*They have difficulty saying, “No”
*They have a tendency to resist others and use passive aggressive means rather than act directly

They PROCRASTINATE!

“I really enjoyed my time working with Taryn. She has a special way of making you feel comfortable, like a trusted friend. She is supportive and patient, letting you vent if you need to but skilled at pushing you past distractions to get to the real issues. She challenged me to step up and be heard, and helped me realize my potential as a leader. She helped me set boundaries and be okay with saying no in order to take care of myself. She inspired and motivated me to take the step that I had been avoiding, and break through my barriers. If you have an opportunity to work with Taryn, I highly recommend you do it!”
