Sometimes, the most difficult pains that we suffer are not inflicted by the people that surround us. They are self-inflicted pains. And the worst of which is simply not loving ourselves.
In this Mindset Monday, we will examine 3 tools to get over self-sabotage in order to live a better life.
1) Realize what is going on!
While it sometimes gets blurry, you need to be able to identify whether you’re already sabotaging yourself. You need to draw the line. There’s a fine line between learning from your failures by looking at them, and taking these shortcomings, doubts and insecurities to your lifestyle. So the first step in getting over self-sabotage is realising that you are sabotaging yourself. If you know the root of the problem, you know where to start your solution.
Now that you know that you’re there, ask yourself, “what can I do to get out from here?” Don’t deny the help that is available around you. There’s always some help out there, and you have to stop being afraid to ask for help. At least there, you’ll realise that you’re not alone in this battle, and that someone can and will help you.
2) Rewire yourself.
It’s always in your mindset. Accept that you are in your situation, but focus on what you can do in order to move forward. Stop focusing on the negative things. And acknowledge that everything happens for a reason.If you realise that you have the power to get over your denials, you will start acknowledging the possibilities around you. And then, you will slowly feel that you can create a better reality than your current situation.
3) Rewrite your story.
In Fitlife, we call this process the “Whydentity”. And you need to constantly upgrade your Whydentity – the story of who you are and who you want to be.
So here’s our challenge for you, 10-15 minutes before you go to bed, think about the reality that you want to create. And create your situation. Stop wondering how it’s all going to happen and start acting like it already has!
Dream big, Fitlifer! And slowly, these pieces of imaginations will turn into a reality.
Always remember, we’re in this together!
