Do you sabotage yourself?

Think carefully before you answer this question. Logically there's no reason why you would sabotage yourself, there are enough other people in the world to sabotage you already. You want to thrive and be successful, right? Now, let's look at a few examples of what self-sabotage looks like:


1. You don't apply for a job because you feel you aren't qualified enough

2. You procrastinate

3. You compare yourself to other people on social media

4. You compare yourself to your friends or family

5. You sometimes tell yourself "I can't do that" or "I'm not good enough"


I haven't even spoken about not making a comment in a meeting, because you think you might look dumb. All of these things are ways in which you sabotage yourself. I know because I did all of these things too. And the only thing you accomplish is robbing yourself of opportunities and making yourself sad. You deserve all the good things in the world, even if you feel you aren't worthy.


The next time you have thoughts of insecurity, ask just 1 question "Who told me this?" If a name of an actual person doesn't pop up, then you know you are feeding yourself this. If a name of an actual person DOES pop up, then ask yourself if that person is a role model that you respect. If the answer is no, then ignore the statement and move on. If the answer is yes, then it's time to do some introspection. It's important to find truth in your thoughts because not everything you think is true.


This is a topic that I am very passionate about, feel free to book a career clarification session with me and we can talk about it:
