You’re probably excited to get started writing and achieving your 90-days goals. Time to do a self-check. Are you a go-getter, or does self-sabotage sometimes play a role in your life? If you ever self-sabotage, you must understand what it is and eliminate that negative in your life.
One of the ways that people self-sabotage themselves in this modern day and age is the use of drugs and alcohol. Drug laws are becoming lax, with some countries like Canada changing the rules on marijuana. Having an excellent idea of planning and completing 90-day goals will likely, go the way of most extinct animals if marijuana usage is part of the plan. This drug will have people doing nothing but watching television and consuming mass quantities of food. We can state that hard drugs or the overuse of prescribed medication will also sabotage your plans for a successful planning session. This also includes the overuse of alcohol.
Blaming others for the issues in your life and being unable to move forward with goals and success is another form of self-sabotage. It is far too easy to point the finger at your spouse and claim that you cannot move forward due to issues in the household. You must hold your head up and be responsible for your success. There is always a way around roadblocks, even in relationships that are not 100% supportive.
It can be a double sabotage when you take money set aside for items like your mortgage or car payment and use it to entertain yourself. Being single means that you have made it challenging to keep the dwelling you are in, and if you are in a relationship, the arguments of where the money went will dogpile on your shoulders. Self-sabotage of this kind is avoidable, and it would help if you disciplined yourself to be accountable.
Self-hatred and negative self-talk go hand in hand. It affects your nervous system when you speak ill of yourself, whether it is self-deprecating comments to friends or family. Omit statements like, “I am stupid, or Why can’t I ever do anything right?” from your vocabulary. It doesn’t matter if you are saying it aloud or in your head; the effect on your brain and nervous system is the same. All your body’s cells have thousands of receptors, and negative talk can affect the peptides. Peptides move throughout the body and attach to receptors in the body. When cells divide, harmful peptides can then increase. The good thing is cells get replaced. If you have always been a negative self-talker, you can change your body’s chemistry by engaging in positive self-talk. Imagine your cells now as positive energy particles flowing throughout your body. This is the pathway to achievement.
When stacking the negatives upon yourself, taking massive action and planning how to achieve your goals is very difficult. Even your genes are affected by the way you think and talk. You can gain control over your body starting today, and your positive mindset will move through your body via your cells and genes and create a new you.
Finally, let’s talk about your comfort zone. This is slightly different from negative self-talk, which is harsh and abrupt. Self-sabotaging yourself and your goals can happen by babying yourself. It is comfort talk when you tell yourself you are tired and need to nap in the lazy boy. Before you even hit that chair, you may say that it was a hard day and that you deserve some ice cream before reclining and wishing the world would stop nagging at you. Immediately when those self-sabotaging thoughts enter your mind, it is far better to say to yourself that eating an apple while briskly walking around the block will perk you right up. Change your dialogue, and you will change yourself.
