We may not realize that we are doing it but there are times when we can be our own worst enemy. It is called self-sabotage.
Negative messages, self criticism, procrastinating and giving up on our dreams simply because we don't believe that we can accomplish the things we desire to do. We as human beings can have a very bad habit of not believing our true worth.
Are you doing it? If you are then it may be time for you to step out of your way so you can succeed. It is time to take chances so that you are able to move ahead in life. It is time to start believing in yourself and your abilities. You have everything to gain by stepping forward.
If at first you do not succeed it only means that you do not yet have the skills to accomplish the task that you have set out for yourself so don't you dare go giving up on yourself. Get out there and get the skills that you need to succeed. Then try again and keep trying till you achieve what you desire.
Send Yourself Positive Messages Rather Than Negative
If at first you don’t succeed then get back up and try again. Success is there and it is waiting for you.
Enjoy the adventure on your way to achieving your desired goal.
Think Positive - Be Positive.
Feeding the wrong message into your mind, heart, and soul is something which we have all done at one time or another. It is time to stop the self sabotage. The more negativity that you are exposed to then the faster that these comments fester into a huge scab on your subconscious thinking.
Pessimistic messages can prevent you from believing in yourself and stop you from moving forward toward your goals. Start listening closely to what you are saying to yourself.
I am fat - I am stupid are not messages that linger long after they are thought yet these are among the more common phrases that people often say to themselves. These simple little brain washing phrases are negative and they can wreck havoc on your self esteem.
Surround yourself with messages of encouragement and disregard negative or pessimistic thoughts. Take the time to pat yourself on the back. A self compliment or two can work wonders. You deserve recognition for your accomplishments so reward yourself.
Don’t analyze anything too closely. Sometimes we analyze things too heavily and it confuses us. Take things at face value. Don’t allow insecurity to prevent you from moving forward in life.
Simplify the Situation: Take a Step Back to a Quieter Time
Sometimes we look at the big picture and it overwhelms us to the point that we forget about all the wonderful little pieces that go into creating that larger image. Look at the simple things in life and appreciate them for what they are. Enjoy the small moments of life.
It is surprising how many little wonderful adventures we miss out on in our rush to achieve our goals. Slow it down. Look around and appreciate the feel of the sunshine, the smells in the air, the touch of warmth from another. Enjoy the challenge of solving a problem or in discovering a new idea.
Believe in yourself, in the honesty of others, and in the written word. Of course don’t allow yourself to be a fool either. Verify your facts, read the fine print in contracts, and never be burned more than once by the same person.
Let Your Heart be Your Guide but Let Logic Rule Your Thoughts
Do what you know is right rather than what you think is easiest for you to do. It may look like the easiest route in life is to simply go along with the crowd but don’t you believe it. In your heart and soul you know which direction is the right one to head in. Stay true to your path.
Stay true to your conscious and be generous in your actions to others. You will never be able to fool the person who matters the most. That person is you. You may be able to convince someone else that you have done the right thing but in your heart you know the truth. Stay true to yourself.
Get out there and enjoy life. Don’t just sit there waiting for life to come to you. Get out there and accomplish all those wonderful ideas that are haunting your mind. The years will pass by and five years from now you can still be sitting there on the couch watching reality shows or you could be the one out there making it happen. It is up to you to make that all important move. Believe in yourself.
Is it time for you to be getting out of your way so you can succeed? If you are self sabotaging your success then it just may be time for you to change. Be optimistic. Be resilient. Be strong. Be as kind and generous to yourself as you would be to a friend. You can do this. Make yourself proud. That my friend is the key to success.
Surround Yourself in Positive Thoughts
