How To Stop Self-Sabotaging

Self-sabotage is something that very few of us actively acknowledge but if we take a moment to assess our actions and attitudes we have probably all self-sabotaged at one point in our lives. We all know what we have to do and usually take the steps to undertake them but sometimes our inner voice will work against us, some call this our sub-conscious, which can work with or against our conscious selves. We can spend a lot of time looking at what everyone is doing or not doing to help or support us.  We do the work on how to build our confidence to get what we want and set goals for what we want but what if we are the ones blocking our own success? We can get all the motivation and inspiration that we need but if we do not address our own internal blocks then we will rarely move forward. Procrastination, poor time keeping, lack of sleep & rest, not committing to things, not looking after ourselves, being judgmental and jealous of others (a way of distracting ourselves from what we need to do) are just a few ways that self-sabotage can manifest. Consistently appearing to be busy but never really being productive is another way that self-sabotaging can show up for some of us. There are so many examples and in this video I provide some of my own tips on how to stop the cycle of self-sabotage.

It is really important to address some of the steps you need to overcome self-sabotage which can lead to limitations in your life particularly when you don’t identify your self-sabotaging habits. If we do not develop even a very basic level of self-awareness it can cause persistent issues across all areas of our lives.
