What Is Self-Sabotage?

Listen Now:

The format today is a little different. A few weeks ago I recorded an incredible conversation with my good friend Gina Worful where we really dug into one core concept -Self-sabotage.

Here's the summary:

  • Self-sabotage occurs at a subconscious level, meaning it influences you without you even knowing it
  • Self-sabotage creates a tension in your life because you perceive incongruence between what your mind wants / expects and what your reality brings
  • Self-sabotage takes the form of irrational thinking, overgeneralization, limiting beliefs, and procrastination
  • Self-sabotage lives in your reptilian and limbic brain, but is made sense by our cognitive brain
  • To start intervening with your self-sabotage, you need to cultivate a mindful curiosity around your emotions (shame, guilt, etc.) to begin making the unconscious conscious

When you start diving into this you’d be shocked to learn all the ways that self-sabotage holds you back and keeps you from doing the things you want to do. It’s when you have a plan in place but you fail to take action on it. When you have good intentions to be a certain way but you fall back to how things used to be. Whether this is a new or old concept for you, I think you’d learn a lot by watching the full conversation I had with Gina.

The first step to overcoming anything is awareness, and this video will give you more knowledge and ideas around how you can take back control of your mind (and life!) Reach out and let me know what you think!
