Whether it’s work patterns or some other type of behaviour, we unknowingly act out the same patterns our parents did.

We say to ourselves that we will be different and we make a commitment to doing the opposite, yet unconsciously we mimic the same old patterns.

It is easy to fall into the trap of denial for many years until we realise the patterns we play out are not serving us and are holding us back.

We must question the patterns we have inherited from the environment we grew up in – even if they were well-intentioned.

Consider challenging whether you are following in the same footsteps. Reconnect with your own vision and purpose and ask yourself if these patterns are working for you.

It is liberating to break free of old patterns and become the person you are supposed to be.

If you don’t question what is appropriate and aligned with your goals you may continue the same destructive behaviour.
