Self-Sabotage / Inner Saboteur

self sabotageThis is one we ALL need to be aware of. Self-Sabotage is behavior or thought processes you indulge in which prevent you from reaching your desired goals.  So you say, for example, ‘I want to lose weight’, but as soon as you are faced with a forbidden food item, your ‘inner saboteur’ says ‘Oh what the heck, I deserve this treat!’

It’s lurking in every single one of us at some point. We start out with the best of intentions, but the ‘bad guy’ just wheedles back in and derails all our good intentions. It is that part of you which drags you back down into the behavior or thought process you are trying to escape from, again and again.

The inner saboteur is very closely linked to both self-limiting beliefs and secondary gains, so it’s important to bear them in mind when you consider those, and you’ll have the tools needed to fight them all and win. You will be able to build a strong case for convincing your subconscious mind that you are now ready to release all these negative beliefs, and replace them with new, beneficial beliefs that will serve you better, put you more in control and add greater value to your life and your health.

Why Do We Sabotage Ourselves?

There are many reasons and I recommend you look at the section on ‘Self-Limiting Beliefs’ as they are closely entwined with your inner saboteur. Perhaps you were criticized as a child and deep inside, you still feel that you are not good enough, and you ‘allow’ yourself to fail before you even try because of this deep seated belief. Whatever the reason, they will be connected to your self-limiting beliefs and once you identify and deal with those you’ll find that your inner saboteur has nowhere left to hide. Becoming aware of both will help you begin to build a more healthy image of yourself as a deserving, worthy individual.

What Are The Most Common Forms of Self-Sabotage?

There are many forms, but according to a survey carried out in America, these are the top ten:

  • procrastination
  • overeating / drinking / spending
  • acting impulsively without concern for the consequences
  • distraction / loss of focus
  • missing exercise
  • unhealthy or poor eating habits
  • ignoring or minimizing problems in relationships / job / health
  • holding unrealistic expectations
  • being too critical of self or others.
