Back with the 4am thoughts.
Self sabatoge is a real thing. You ever feel like something is too good to be true? I think we all have. When you feel like that we are often waiting for “the catch” or something negative to happen. Sometimes when we can’t see “the catch” or something negative doesn’t happen…we create it.
Hear me out…
Sometimes we ask for something & we want it so bad! Then when we get it or it finally happens, we don’t know what to do. We have the deer in headlights look. What I have learned is that life and its experiences isn’t a “one size fits all” kinda thing. My actions and behaviors in one setting won’t necessarily apply or benefit me in other situations. When something causes us to change up how we would normally react it’s like we get nervous. We act out of uncertainty and doubt. Sometimes we don’t even notice it.
We all know someone (even if it’s yourself), who has so much potential, the world is their oyster ( lol I’m not ever saying that again…it’s corny/cliche but you know what I mean), but yet they can’t advance. Advance in anything…personal, emotionally, financially, career wise, whatever. It’s mostly because they or we never thought we would be in this position.
We spend all the time in the world fantasizing about having something but not enough time thinking about what we would do when we get it. A part of that is self doubt. I never thought I would achieve this or accomplish that, so I didn’t think about or plan what would come next.
Self sabatoge is real! How you think and view yourself is one of the biggest determining factors on what you will accomplish. It matters none if everyone around you believes in you but you don’t believe in you. If you don’t believe you can or should have something, why would you ever think about what to do when you got it?
I’m 100% my biggest critic. If you don’t think you’re good enough for something, you’re not going to be good enough for it. Our thoughts directly influence our actions. That being said…let’s be mindful of how we think and the vibes we put out. Be confident in you, your abilities and your adaptability. Just because it’s not something you’re used to doesn’t mean you can’t get used to it or handle it. Stop looking for something to go wrong or you just mind end up creating “the wrong”. Appreciate things for what they are.
