Overcoming self-sabotage

Many people self-sabotage without knowing it, or if you are aware of it, you don’t know how to stop it. You may not be aware of the self-sabotaging behaviours, thoughts, and feelings that are holding you back. Your subconscious mind sees self-sabotage as self-preservation, a way to safeguard and defend you from the unknown.

Self-sabotage, according to the google definition, is the behaviours or thought patterns that hold you back and prevent you from doing what you want to do. Self-sabotaging behaviours get in the way of your intent, of your bigger dreams and goals. You can put a stop to self-sabotage. It starts by understanding the thoughts and feelings that are driving unwanted behaviours.

“Self-sabotage is like driving with your foot on the accelerator and the brake pedal at the same time.” It doesn’t matter how hard you press the accelerator you are not going to reach your destination with your other foot firmly planted on the brake”

Would you agree that you have done something, thought something, or behaved in some way that has created problems for yourself getting from where you are to where you want to be?

Your subconscious probably sees self-sabotage as some form of self-preservation, a way to defend yourself even if it’s not.

Some of your self-sabotage is so subtle that it is easy to miss. One of the things I wanted to do was to create some awareness for you about what sabotage is for you personally and what are some of the ways that you can move through it.
