Self-sabotage can show up in many ways

You may not realise that some of your behaviours are self-sabotaging, they can be subtle however in its extreme form self-sabotage can lead to behaviours such as substance abuse or self-harm. Self-sabotage occurs when there is conflict between your conscious desires and your sub conscious beliefs. The root cause of the self-sabotage will be an accumulation of dysfunctional, negative thoughts about yourself, for example that you don’t deserve success, or you aren’t good enough.

Self-sabotage can show up in many ways. Do you wonder why you persist with poor spending habits? What about all the time you spend on your to-do lists and planning when you never actually put a plan into action. Are you paralysed when faced with decisions or do you give up half way through a task because you have convinced yourself you will fail? Are you adept at setting goals but never achieving them?

All these behaviours can have a negative impact on your business, your profit and your self-worth. Self-sabotage is linked to a lack of self-confidence and self-belief. People often find themselves locked in a self-perpetuating cycle; the more they self-sabotage and don’t maximise their potential the more they reinforce their lack of self-worth. People fail to understand their true capabilities, suppress their feelings and feel a lack of satisfaction with their life.

The good news is that once you have identified the beliefs behind the self-sabotage it is possible to change your behaviour. This is the key to leaving those self-sabotaging behaviours behind. When you notice yourself procrastinating or indulging cravings for food, drink or other temptations acknowledge this as self-sabotage and take a moment to try and connect with the thoughts or feelings you are experiencing. This will provide you with a clue to the root cause of your behaviour.
