Self-Sabotage is definitely a thing.
But the truth is most of our fears are in our heads.
Ninety-nine per cent of the time, it won’t be real ... or at least, you think it’s a tidal wave swamping you and going to drown you when really it’s a nothing more than a storm in a tea cup.
Self sabotage makes us perpetuate the worst-case scenario,playing out awful outcomes, subconsciously and sometimes consciously too. We keep thinking that the worst thing that could possibly happen is actually going to happen.
We start to believe that the worst thing we’ve got in our head is real, but it’s NOT.
BUT the thing is, no matter how real it looks in our mind,the worst things are actually very, very unlikely to happen.
When faced with stepping out of our comfort, launching a new program or product, scaling your business or maybe even starting a new one … we think about all the variables: what could go right and, of course, what could go wrong.
Our first thoughts typically jump to the worst-case scenario. What is the absolute worst thing that could happen and our minds get stuck here, in quicksand. We can’t move.
You think you’re going to fail. No one will show up. It will be a flop.
So guess what we tend to do … we procrastinate. In fact we procrastinate so much that we ensure we can’t succeed!
But what would happen if you stopped chasing the worst case scenario around your head and stopped and asked yourself is this a fact or just a feeling?
Because if it’s just a feeling, it’s NOT REAL and you need to stop putting your energy into it.
