Self-sabotage can be a sneaky thing. But having the willingness to know thyself can help you get out of this loop of torment.
This is how it usually goes…
👉🏻 You have a desire (you want something badly) – or you’re triggered by a worry/need, i.e. money or weight gain
👉🏻 You decide on a goal or setting new habits that can help with that desire/worry
👉🏻 You create a roadmap or gameplan, i.e. reverse engineer your sales plan, hire a coach, purchase a nutrition plan
👉🏻 Your subconscious brain will do anything to talk you out of making changes. It says: “What are you trying to do to me?! I don’t like this I don’t like change … let me remind you that your paradigm controls over 90% of your behavior – so here’s an old memory (which hold NO weight now), but I have to pull something out of my hat to remind you of your old stories so you stay put.”
👉🏻 This internal struggle can influence you to take inconsistent, unaligned or frantic/desperate action.
👉🏻 You will recreate experiences from the past, tell yourself old stories. Negative though spiraling can often happen. Shame and doubt kick in and you self-sabotage.
👉🏻 Then you get sick and tired once again of your circumstance so you’re triggered out of fear, worry, and frustration OR a new desire is planted in your heart.
Does this sound familiar?
I know the struggle is real. Breaking this cycle is easier said than done. But I will say this:
It is NOT about “willpower.”
It all starts with getting extremely self-aware and curious about your stories. It’s about doing the inner work that interrupts the patterns and old stories that hold you back.
Your body and subconscious brain are literally addicted to the emotional states you experience with the highest frequency. It’s time to create new patterns and empowering stories that help you THRIVE.
