Recognize self-sabotaging habits

  • Procrastination. Start setting deadlines and mini-deadlines to work toward your objective.
  • Negative self-talk/negative thinking. Be patient with yourself; be kind to yourself. Work to build yourself up.
  • Perfectionism. It is an impossible standard that keeps you from moving forward.

Self-sabotage occurs when your logical, conscious mind (the side of you that says you need to eat healthily and save money) is at odds with your subconscious mind (the side of you that stress-eats chocolate and goes on online shopping binges).

Self-destructive behaviors can become habits and can continually undermine your success and happiness.

Put aside those harsh inner voices of "I can’t" or "I’m a failure."

The most successful people are those who take the time to think through their choices, decisions and actions. 

Once you’ve identified the changes you want to make, pick just one thing that you want to work on.

Self-destructive habits are often rooted in our feelings of self-worth.

In every moment, we’re taking action that either moves us toward or away from the person we want to be and the life we want to have.

By having firm, thoughtful plans for each step we take, we will feel more confident about our intentions and what we’re doing.

The reason why I wanted to share this article is because I notice I have sabotage myself for so long, losing many opportunities. So, if you are in the same situation I hope this can help you somehow :)
