5 Techniques to Make Sure Self-Sabotaging Behaviors Don’t Block You From A Brighter Future
Life is a series of challenges. Some people succeed and push through while others fail…sometimes on purpose…and they don’t even know it.
Have you ever felt like anything that you do or get involved with will instantly fail because you’re not worth it or you’re not good enough or you’re simply just too scared of the outcomes? Can you relate to this feeling? If you survey a bunch of people, odds are, the honest, mature and responsible ones will say “I am the reason why I’ve failed.”
While it’s good to man up to your mistakes and accept them, we can’t let our mistakes define our whole lives. A lot of people tend to struggle with life because they’ve developed weak mindsets and self-sabotaging behaviors that blocks them from ever moving forward in life.
It’s time to cast away the self-sabotaging behaviors because it will lead no where. Before we cast away the different self-sabotaging behaviors, we must first identify what they are. Once we’ve identified them, you can say your good byes!
5 Techniques That Will Scare Self-Sabotaging Behaviors Away
1. Meditate to Improve Your Focus
Being easily distracted is never a good thing. It means that when someone starts something, they struggle and most of the time never even complete that task or promise because they’re busy walloping to the next shiny object. Is that something that you can relate to?
In Napoleon Hill’s controversial book “Outwitting The Devil”that was published 70 years after his death due to it’s contents being too sensitive, he calls people who can’t focus drifters because these are people with no definite purpose. They simply jump from one opportunity to another taking a little to no action at all.
Life can get busy and sometimes, we don’t intentionally lose focus. This is where the danger is at, the subtlety of self-sabotaging behaviors.
In order to quiet things down and re-connect with yourself, practice meditation. It helps calm things down and sharpen your focus in your: financial, emotional, spiritual, physical, mental and personal life. Do this at least 10-30mins minimum daily and just watch as the anxiety and stress slowly start fading away. It doesn’t make you immune to stress and anxiety but it sure is a difference-maker.

2. STOP Putting Yourself Down
Putting yourself down means that you don’t believe in yourself and your skills. You look down on yourself and you’re welcoming and embracing self-sabotaging behaviors into your life. You’re already accepting failure before you’ve even given it a go.
Here’s a great excerpt from www.HealthyPlace.com by Fay Agathangelou:
“You can’t control what others say about you but you can control what you say about yourself.
To build your self-esteem, it’s important to talk about yourself in a healthy manner.
Believe you are worthy and quit the self-bullying. Treat yourself as you would a good friend and respect yourself. Replace negative words with positive words. For example you could say “I’m capable” or “I’m learning” instead of “I’m useless” or “I’m stupid.” Words can make a big difference.”
Believe in yourself, be confident and know that as long as you go through the process and be a student of life, then there’s no reason why you should doubt your knowledge and skills. (Want to learn highly marketable skills that will allow you to make money online? Click here now!)
Love is a powerful emotion. People do brave things for love. Now this doesn’t necessarily mean that in order to feel or experience love you need a special partner. You can show love to your family like your mother, father, brother or sister and even to your friends.
Love is also something that you should give as a gift to yourself. Who do you hang out with 100% of the time even during times when it’s private? Yourself! So why hate yourself? Why look down on yourself? Love yourself for who you are and be thankful for everyone around you.
Most importantly, the one thing that scares the crap out of self-sabotaging behaviors is if you love the gift of LIFE. If you love your life, it means that you love anything and everything in it…including the problems because that’s what makes you…you.
Imagine how blessed you are to be born in an era where it’s easier to find the answers to your questions, it’s quicker, safer and more efficient to travel and it’s way more peaceful today than it was in the past (Imagine if you were born during the medieval times where war, death, sickness and slavery were big issues. Think of living in Game of Thrones. While it may sound cool, it’s a scary thought.)
4. It’s In Your Hands
Realize that everything that happens in your life, you are responsible for it. While there are many external situations that affect you, you’re still responsible as to how you react to these situations. It’s either you embrace the self-sabotaging behaviors or do something about it.
You don’t need to have all the answers in life. No one ever does and no one will ever have or know it all. That’s the beauty. Life is a journey of discovery both of ourselves and of life itself.
The key to success in life is just to keep moving forward. As long as you put one foot in front of the other, you’re moving forward. (Ready to take charge of your life? Click here now and learn how to take control of your financial life!)

Just believe in yourself and know that everything happens for a reason and it’s usually a good one. If you fail, you learned something that does not work. If you succeed, then awesome!
5. No Matter How Small Or Big An Accomplishment…Celebrate!
Celebrate! Why? Because you freakin’ deserve it, my friend. If you think any differently, then you’re entertaining self-sabotaging behaviors. And don’t be shy to share your accomplishments. It’s not bragging. Why? Because there are people out there who are lost and your story of your success…no matter how small can create that much needed spark and inspire them to change their lives as well. Live life with no regrets!
Now, the special moment (Drum roll please!). It’s time to throw away all your self-sabotaging behaviors and finally live life the way that you should be living it.
