'Cause your crystal ball ain't so crystal clear ...
'Cause what you see you might not get
And we can bet, so don't you get souped yet
You're scheming on a thing that's a mirage
I'm trying to tell you now, it's sabotage ...
Our backs are now against the wall?
Listen all y'all, it's a sabotage
~ Beastie Boys ~ Sabotage ~
Do you believe that you deserve good things, happy times, true friends and lasting happiness? If you truly don’t believe this, you could be sabotaging your life.
Self-sabotage ... comes from years of human conditioning.
You sabotage yourself every time you do something that you don’t really want to do, that doesn’t inspire, because you are denying the essence of who you are ... you are denying your true self. Think about the last time you did something out of obligation rather than joy. You reinforced to yourself that you don’t deserve to choose how you spend your time. If you continue to say “yes” when you really mean “no”, you start to lose yourself, you demise your spirit, your creativity and your right to live a life that is fulfilling. When you do what you want, you emit a different energy, attracting different experiences in your life.
You sabotage yourself every time you alter the truth, make excuses and lie to yourself. When you think you deserve less, feel miserable and powerless to change your life, you are altering your truth. You modify your situation because you are not ready to face reality. You lie because you don't want to hurt others. But even though the truth may seem harsh, it will set you free once you release it ... regardless as to how unpopular it may be. When you consciously choose to live a more fulfilling life, instead of shades of truth, you start to carve out your own style, and your own way.
Sadly it is easier to deny who you are, to create false truths and to excuse your choices and behaviour. Society favours those that follow status quo, rather than making their own choices.
Self-sabotage stems from FEAR. Some of us are scared and others have the courage to face it head on, move past it and forward onto a life deserved. Check in and see where you are and how that's working for you. Feed your dreams and starve your doubts ... have the courage to recognize your sabotaging behaviour. Choose to believe in yourself ... accept yourself just as you are and stop comparing yourself to others. Value your unique qualities, celebrate them because the difference between ordinary and "extra" ordinary is YOU.
