5-ways-we-unconsciously-destroy-ourselves

“Sometimes you hit a point where you either change or self destruct.”
— Sam Stevens

There is a thing commonly called self-sabotage and it is very real even in some of our own lives. We don’t necessarily set out to destroy ourselves. However, the little things we know we shouldn’t do if we really thought about them, but that we do anyway intentionally or unconsciously, on a fairly consistent basis, are what help to destroy our psyche and eventually our lives.

(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #17)

“Self-sabotage is when we say we want something and then go about making sure it doesn’t happen.”
— Alyce P. Cornyn Selby

Standing in the middle of a busy highway and knocking yourself over with your own car. Wanting to lose unnecessary weight but heading straight to the store for donuts and cupcakes each day after work. Trying to reach a goal or dream but shooting yourself in the foot. Cutting wordiness from a research paper and then putting every single word back in there and calling it ‘editing’. Read more…

“All our life, so far as it has definite form, is but a mass of habits.”
— William James

You’ve probably heard that your good habits outweigh your bad ones and that idea makes sense. The truth is, however, that most of us aren’t aware of our good habits or our bad ones. Thus, we develop habits that don’t help us make progress in any way. These habits are automatic and we don’t think before we act. Read more…

3 Complete Ways We Sabotage Ourselves (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 174)

3 Complete Ways We Sabotage Ourselves

“I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.”
— Tony Robbins

Life is not about what could have been, what should have been, or what you would have done. Life is about what is. Why? Because what is is all that matters. If you find yourself hanging for dear life off a cliff, you should know two things. The first is that you’re hanging for dear life off a cliff. The second is that something good is about to happen, providing that is what you expect. Not giving in to self sabotage is really about refusing to expect anything less than what you really want to achieve and then going in that direction. Read more…

3 Clear Ways We Sabotage Ourselves

“It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.”
— Erma Bombeck

Everything we want, say, or do begins with a thought or idea in our conscious, and sometimes, subconscious, mind. What we create in our minds will either make us a success or make us a failure. Many people often do not accomplish much in life because they listen to the negative voice in their mind. We impair our cognitive abilities when we allow self-defeating voices to invade our lives.  Read more…

3 Simple Ways We Sabotage Ourselves

“When we can’t dream any longer we die.”
— Emma Goldman

We often fail at life not because we’re being hindered or even because we’re facing an obstacle. We often fail because we choose not to show up for the battle. We want something and don’t get it not because we’re not good enough or smart enough, but because we don’t fight long enough. Much of life is about not giving up. Showing up. Day in and day out. Sticking by the stuff. Getting it done. And when we don’t do this, we sabotage our own progress and possible success.
