What is self sabotage?

One of the biggest keys to success is intention. Being mindful and setting our intentions is an essential part of any journey you take. With such a focus on success, we must also be wary of self-sabotage. Self-sabotage is anything we do that could jeopardize our success, whether those actions are conscious or unconscious. It can be difficult to recognize that sometimes we compromise our own plans, but by understanding why these thoughts and behaviors occur we can identify and reframe them.

Why do we sabotage ourselves?

There are many reasons why the self-sabotage instinct rears its ugly head. Here are just a few:
– Imposter Syndrome: Imposter Syndrome is something that can plague anyone of any age and gender. Feeling undeserving—everything from a job to a relationship— stems from feelings of insecurity and inadequacy. Low self-esteem can affect our inner voice, telling us that luck, not merit, has got us where we are.
– Early childhood experiences: Our inner voice is formed early in childhood and adolescence. Any level of trauma or neglect can provoke a critical inner voice later in life. Negative experiences or relationships leave a lasting impression and train the psyche to defend itself and prepare for further disappointment.
– Mental Obstacles: There can be mental obstacles that hold us back from start to finish. You can struggle with motivational and leadership issues that make it difficult to get started. Others may have perseverance or concentration issues that make it impossible to complete something. Establishing a routine can be a strategic way to start achieving goals.

Techniques to stop self-sabotage

Aside from the direct result of not achieving our goals, self-sabotage can harm our work, our relationships, and even our physical health. The good news is that when we realize we are self-sabotaging, there are many techniques we can employ to stop self-sabotage.
– Create a mantra: In a pinch, having a mantra that you can repeat can really help redirect your focus to stop negative thinking. To keep self-criticism in check, you need to be more present and confident. Flip the internal script and replace self-doubt with motivation and support. The first step is to be kind to yourself.
– Write it down: It’s important to have a phrase in mind to tell yourself when negative self-talk starts, but you can also expand on the things you’re saying to yourself. Never underestimate the power or weight of words. Take a moment to sit down and identify and embrace your personal strengths and achievements. Think about what you like most about yourself. Once you’re in a better mood, take some time to write down small and achievable goals. When we forget about perfectionism, it becomes easier to complete tasks without added anxiety. Reconnecting with yourself and letting go of what doesn’t serve you is good for your overall health, both mentally and physically.
– Call a friend: It’s important to find a healthy outlet when negativity builds up. Being your own cheerleader is great, but sometimes a supportive friend can make all the difference when you need a reminder of just how capable you are. It’s important to have a strong network of relationships with people we can be vulnerable with. These relationships help reduce fears and feelings of inadequacy.
– Learning from mistakes: Everyone makes mistakes. If we didn’t, there would be nothing to learn from. Let the consequences of your self-sabotage inspire you to do things differently next time and break old patterns. It can be difficult to break a cycle. Our minds crave consistency, which can lead to a pessimistic outlook. Breaking a cycle of negativity and self-sabotage takes effort and commitment.

How a Psychic Can Help

Self-sabotage has a lot to do with energies and intention. In resolving self-sabotage, you may need the help of a psychic counselor. A psychic reading can also confirm that you are getting in your own way. It can be helpful to hear our obstacles out loud to truly commit to removing them. Connecting with someone who is aligned with universal energies and is drawn to helping others can be an important part of progress.

Psychics can also help unravel the elements of our past that may need healing. Often things are pushed into our subconscious that we don’t even know contribute to self-sabotage. Clearing this energy allows us to manifest a new outcome with a fresh, self-motivating mindset. By identifying elements in our past, present, and future, a medium can help create a routine that meets our motivational needs.

Trusting that the universe only brings us things we can handle is a great defense against self-sabotage. Work with a medium to magnetize and accept the success we are capable of.
