Are You Sabotaging Your Success?

Are You Sabotaging Your Success?

Does this sound like you?
“Every time I get ahead, I do something to sabotage my success.”
“I work really hard, I am busy all the time and I never get ahead.”
“I have great intentions and I never get started.”

Self-sabotage is an interesting occurrence. Why would you want to undermine your own success? Why wouldn’t you do the things that would bring success, happiness and abundance into your life?
Self-sabotage has nothing to do with skill, knowledge, desire or effort on your part.

Sabotaging your success is due to bumping up against self-imposed barriers that limit how much success you can comfortably allow into your life.

If something feels like it is too good to be true or success is coming too fast, or is beyond your comfort level, your subconscious mind kicks in and sabotages your success.
Your subconscious mind may want to keep you safe, keep you from getting hurt, and/or keep you from being disappointed. It may also want to prevent you from “getting too big for your britches”.

Take a moment and think about how Self-sabotage show up in your life.
  • Do you procrastinate and never get started?
  • Do you get started, but never finish?
  • Are you easily distracted and lack focus?
  • Do you experience excessive worry and fear?
  • Is there a constant steam of negative self-talk going on in your mind?
  • Do you need help in a particular area and you are not asking for it?
  • Do you find yourself destroying working relationships and you don’t even know why?
  • Do you eat poorly and avoid daily exercise?

Write down the self-sabotaging behaviors you are experiencing.

Now, explore why you would sabotage your success.
  • Are you afraid of success?
  • Are you afraid of failure?
  • Are you afraid to promote yourself?
  • Do you doubt your ability to succeed?
  • Do you feel unworthy and undeserving of success?
  • Are you afraid of change?
  • Are you afraid of “rocking the boat” in your relationships?
Write down why you believe you are sabotaging your success.

Being aware of your sabotaging behaviors and the reasons why you sabotage your success may be all you need to get over this pattern and get moving again. Your conscious mind can override your unconscious conditioned response with enough will-power and determination.

But, typically this pattern is so deeply engrained in your subconscious mind that once your will-power and your determination begins to wear off, you are back to sabotaging your success. That’s why dieters give up after a few days, weeks or months. Their will power wears off and their subconscious fears, doubts and limiting beliefs once again bubble up.

This is also why people who are determined to make more money often manifest ways to spend it or lose it once the level of income is beyond their subconscious comfort zone. Are you always manifesting ways to spend any extra money that comes your way? If so, you have some subconscious limiting beliefs that need to be changed.

You owe it to yourself to explore how and why you are sabotaging your success and begin to reprogram your subconscious mind for success. EFT meridian tapping is the best process I have found to address the subconscious programming that limits our ability to be successful in all areas of our lives.

If you need help wording your EFT sessions, I have a new EFT script and audio for Self-Sabotage on my web site as well as other EFT sessions that address the self-limiting subconscious programs you have running in your life.

I encourage you to use EFT meridian tapping on a daily basis to release or activate whatever will support your success. Here are links to some EFT sessions on my web site that will help you get started.
