We overthink things. We procrastinate. We hold ourselves to impossibly high standards. We fail to make time for what's most important to us. We doubt ourselves. We're afraid of saying no. We never let ourselves cross the finish line. Sometimes we don't even let ourselves cross the starting line.
We all have the little voice in the back of our minds reminding us of the risks, the past failures, the potential humiliation, and the loads of fear that come along with chasing our biggest dreams. That little voice is Hilda, your personal inner saboteur.
Hilda stops us in our tracks, stomps on our dreams, and keeps us from pursuing what we want in life. And the higher the stakes, the louder she gets!
Clearly, Hilda must be stopped. That's where this book comes in.
Because even the most ambitious and badass humans can get in their own way and hold themselves back thanks to Hilda and her self-sabotage. Enough already! An amusing yet actionable self-help book, Hilda explores the ways your inner saboteur operates while providing powerful tactics for silencing the noise, getting out of your own way, and realizing your true potential. Drawing from Jennie Mustafa-Julock's expertise in organizational development and 10 years as the Audacity Coach, this book will help you become keenly aware of your self-sabotaging ways and arm you with powerful counteractions to get you unstuck and make you unstoppable.

Encouraging, Enlightening, Empowering
A friend recommended this book, and I’m so glad I listened! Coach Jennie brings just the right blend of compassion and holding your feet to the fire. She helps you identify and counteract the negative self talk that can cripple your best efforts to take charge of your future and bring your unique contribution to life. I love that she is also the narrator, because I can put on a section of the book while I’m doing things around the house, and it’s like she’s in my ear, reminding me of all the tricky ways my ego wants to sabotage me in its attempt to keep me safe. Stand down Ego, aka Hilda...I got this. Thanks, Jennie for this book and being a guide on my path.

Shut your inner critic down. Right now.
A lot of people are going to find themselves in this book, decide they’re not sick, bad, or some unique special snowflake that just doesn’t get it, and change their lives.
Most of us experience self sabotage messages one at a time. It’s a nagging voice in the back of your head, it’s getting the side eye in the grocery store and spending your entire afternoon thinking about it, it’s parking outside the networking event and going back home before you even walk inside. It’s one thing to experience these messages individually, but when I listened this book, I saw all my self sabotage messages at once. You know what? It was overwhelming for about three seconds. And then? It began to feel like an opportunity. Now that I’ve seen exactly how much Hilda has held me back (spoiler alert: a tremendous amount), it’s appalling. And I’m ready to do something about it.
You can’t get rid of an evil tree by hacking at the branches. Go for the roots, baby. Go for the roots. This book gives you a shovel and compels you to take action.
I’ve listened to self help books before. So many times, those books contain instructions from someone on high - advice you “should” adhere to if you want to become a better person. Those books always outline some step by step process that seems doable at first, but is never practical.
When I listened to this book, I realized: This isn’t a self help book at all. It’s a self shove book (new category, Amazon?). It made me realize how much self sabotage is going on in my life; and more importantly, it is showing me that there is a way to stop it. This book gave me more than advice; it gave me hope.
Get. This. Now.
