Self-sabotage involves behaviors or thoughts that keep you away from what you desire most in life. It’s that internal sentiment gnawing at us, saying “you can’t do this.”

Work on identifying and acknowledging what is causing you to sabotage yourself, and then start making changes to stop those behaviors.
The most successful people are those who take the time to think through their choices, decisions and actions.
