In this episode, Hazel speaks with Africa Brooke. Africa is a consultant, coach, strategist, and speaker with a unique focus: tackling self-sabotage and self-censorship.
They talk about Africa’s path to working in this field, from her childhood in Zimbabwe and her journey with recovering from alcoholism. They talk about how to rebuild confidence, self-worth and self-trust even when you feel ashamed of things you’ve done in your past. They talk about taking personal responsibility and the difference between being a victim and victimhood. They talked about why self-censorship is such an important personal and social phenomenon right now and how insidious it is within the human psyche. They talk about social and emotional risk and the cost to self-trust when we lose our authenticity. Africa works with visible people in the public eye, but self-sabotage and self-censorship show up in all of us in different ways and everyone can learn a lot from this conversation.
