When we’re stuck in a rut or enter a low period of our lives, many of us struggle to realize that we have been self-sabotaging.
While yes, certain people and other external factors can hold us back and prevent us from living our best lives, a lot of the time, we do it to ourselves.
Here’s the thing about self-sabotage – it happens a lot, and you’re not alone if you do it. We can be guilty of self-sabotage in big and small ways. Plus, once you’ve started sabotaging yourself and holding yourself back, it can be hard to break the habit.
So, here are some tips on how to stop self-sabotaging to allow yourself to blossom into the person you’ve always wanted to be.
Maintain balance in your life
If you’ve found yourself working really hard, doing absolutely everything you can to excel in your career and personal life, and not seeing much in the way of results, it could be because you’re overdoing it.
Those who struggle with moderation and maintaining a balance in their life aren’t doing themselves any favors. While going to the gym in the wee hours of the morning and staying up all night to work on a project may seem like impressive dedication, that kind of behavior can be damaging and hold you back rather than push you forward. You have to take care of yourself to grow.
Everyone procrastinates in their lives. It’s human nature. Haven’t you waited too long to start a project or kept “forgetting” to send out an email because you occupied yourself with other things until the day was over?
