Stop Sabotaging Success

Posted on February 12th, 2018 by The DSWA

You can stop sabotaging success...
Are you sabotaging your own successes?

Surprisingly, there are just as many people with a fear of success as there are those with the fear of failure. Are you one of them?

Stop Sabotaging Success

According to the dictionary ‘success’ is a person or thing that prospers.

‘Sabotage’ means to willfully and maliciously destroy or impede.

‘Willful’ is defined as with intention, or headstrong.

The implication is that we do it on purpose.
Most of us do not decide to willfully destroy or impede our prosperity but we do make choices that improve or diminish success.
Therefore, we do in fact choose to sabotage ourselves.

Are You Sabotaging Yourself?

  • How do we know if we are sabotaging ourselves?
  • How many of the following situations can you identify with?
  • I read lots of self-help books but can’t seem to improve.
  • I go to seminars and conferences frequently and nothing changes.
  • I am insecure about money or making a lot less than I should be making.
  • I expect perfection of myself.
  • I try to be all things to all people.
  • I frequently start projects and have a hard time finishing them.
  • I feel guilty saying “no” to others.
  • I frequently feel as though I am not doing enough, even though I am doing all I can.
  • I have a low opinion of myself, even though other people think I am smart, funny, and capable.
  • I usually settle for less.
  • I worry a lot.
  • I’ve started to lose hope that I will ever live the life I dream of living.

If you can identify with 5 or more of these warning signs, you may suffer from fear of success.

That fear may lead to self-sabotage.

We are who we are today based on who we were yesterday. Who we are today will determine who we are tomorrow.
You can choose your future success by making better choices today.

The Secret Law Of Attraction

In the 1800’s, Napoleon Hill said: “People are creators of their own misfortunes because of their negative beliefs, which are picked up by the subconscious mind and translated into reality.”
