Is it you? Are you the problem that’s keeping you from reaching your goals?



April 16th, 2024


 It has been a minute or two since my last blog post and many changes have been made to this blog and website as I continue to create my wellness program. I have also been taking my own advice and beginning to focus more on self-care and what my body is telling me. Sometimes taking a moment to rest, relax or not multitask because you are exhausted, mentally, physically, or both, is exactly what you need to do so you can be the best version of yourself. I consistently fight the mental battle of am I doing enough or too much? Writing down goals and accomplishments has helped me greatly in this area and I have added reminders in my phone of my progress so far and the goal I am striving to achieve.

Let’s talk about self-sabotage. I recently listened to a great book titled, “Self-sabotage No More,” by Jennie Potter. I cannot tell you how incredibly self-revealing this book is! Life is a daily mental game and if your subconscious is negatively programed, success can seem unattainable. The great news, however, is that with work you can rewire your brain and remove the roadblocks! It will be challenging, but it is possible. The author takes a deep dive into emotions that you may have from your past that remain unprocessed and your current sabotaging beliefs.


The website, verywellmind.com, defines self-sabotage as “intentional action (or inaction) that undermines people's progress and prevents them from accomplishing their goals. Self-sabotage occurs when people hinder their own success.” This may look like perfectionism, procrastination or even self-medication with alcohol or drugs. The great news, however, is that by developing a plan you can overcome some, if not all of your self-sabotaging habits. I recommend working with your counselor if you have one. If you do not have a counselor, seeking professional help might be beneficial as you explore the root cause of these habits. What triggers your self-sabotaging behavior? It could be things you dealt with in your childhood or maybe in your relationships as an adult. Some of the things that have helped me to change my perspective and habits is to practice grace with myself instead of beating myself up over small mistakes, as well as, focusing on the next step instead of the end goal. By shifting my focus in this way, it helps me to not feel as overwhelmed by all the steps I need to take to reach my goal.
