If you are like how I used to be then you will most recognize the following: I used to make little progress toward my goals and objectives, only to backslide again into old, non-serving behaviors.. In the past I would always procrastinate in taking the next step. Sometimes I would even become physically ill just to sabotage my work that needed to be done in order to fulfill my dream of becoming a healer.
How about you? Are you perplexed by how often you get off track and then asking yourself, totally exhausted and confused, why do I let this happen?
If you are not moving steadily in the direction of what you say you want, you can be certain that you are sabotaging yourself somewhere.
Whatever form it takes – whether unhealthy behaviors or limiting thought patterns – self-sabotage always diminishes the passion and energy we need in order to fulfill our dreams. Self-sabotage is the outer manifestation of our inner feelings of shame, guilt, anger and unworthiness. Honestly, we only create as much love, fulfillment, success and joy as we feel worthy of having, as we allow our self to have and feel.
To make radical positive change toward that which you want, your goal, it is essential to identify how your inner critic is sabotaging your life. Choose one area where you can see that you’re sabotaging yourself: for example your finances, or maybe it’s in the area of your health or relationships.
Ask yourself, “What do I get out of not thriving in this area?” (There is always a positive within the negative, something that we are getting out of it). Motivated by negative beliefs about yourself, you may discover that you don’t expect to succeed in this area. So in the end, you get to be right about yourself! And most of us will do anything to prove that we are right–even if it means not full filling our biggest dreams.
However, today you can decide to take the first step towards reaching your goals!
