Why do We Sabotage Ourselves? Part III.

Sad Womanphoto © 2004 Rob Lee | more info (via: Wylio) We have covered positive thinking, as well as self discipline. Time to rip the band-aid off! Have you spent time examining your emotions behind why you self sabotage? You may find that for some reason, you truly believe that you do not deserve this goal.

Maybe, at some deeper level, you still don’t believe that you really deserve the body and happiness you desire. Where you are now is in your comfort zone.  As unhappy as you may be, you already know what to expect in life- things are familiar and predictable. It is scary to step outside of that, no?

If this sounds familiar, then what I want you to understand first and foremost is that these are beliefs you either learned from others or created for yourself- nothing more.  You don’t have to carry them any further with you ‘in your suitcase’ than you already have.  Sure, changing these beliefs requires some deep reflection and earnest effort, but any negative belief you may have about yourself, your body or your worthiness as a person can be changed.

The solution?  As you bump into these old beliefs start reflecting on where they came from.  Who encouraged you to think and feel this way about yourself?  Your family?  Friends?  An old boyfriend?  Or maybe you just created it all by yourself.  Regardless, the first step is recognizing these old limiting beliefs and being willing to ‘exchange them’ for new beliefs that help you get where you want to be rather than blocking the way.

The truth is, you deserve all the health, happiness, positive relationships and fit, sexy body you desire.  You need to own that truth.  You need to fully believe this yourself and get out of your own way.
