Self sabotage is an ugly monster that all of us wrestle with from HGTV famous Joanna Gaines to seasoned superstar Candace Olson, the designer just launching and one who’s been in business for decades. Self sabotage doesn’t play favorites.
The list of self sabotage here is going to make you feel both very bad and very good.
Very bad because you are going to see yourself in at least a few (if you are like most of us, it may be more than a few) of the wretched ways you are sabotaging your success that I’ve described here.
Very good because you’ll be able to gloat a bit knowing that I’ve indulged in, either wittingly or unwittingly, every single one of these and some of them all at one time. (I created this list in just 30 minutes, without the help of Google. I couldn’t have done that if I hadn’t experienced these self sabotage actions personally. It would be embarrassing, if it weren’t a valuable lesson.)
Very, very good because you have the ability to conquer each and every one of these ways you are sabotaging your success.
Recognition and awareness are the critical first steps in killing these success saboteurs.
Perhaps the most challenging part of self sabotage is that it forms patterns really fast; patterns that we become blind to. These same patterns are what blind us to our success and keep us stuck in sabotage.
Conquering self sabotage lies in creating a series of tiny (and I mean tiny) new habits that pull you out of the pattern in a way that has immediate reward and lasting impact. Trying to do it all at once guarantees failure (see #5).
Claim yours in the comments below, c’mon be brave. Your willingness to step up is going to be the push someone else needs.
Remember what I said about self sabotage being a pattern? The first step to changing any pattern is to recognize it. And if you recognized yourself in one or many of the patterns above, help is just a click away. Let’s schedule a complimentary Designer Discovery session and take a look at where you are vs. where you want to be. I’m here to help you close that gap sooner and build a design practice you truly love.
Own up to just one or two or five or more of these wretched ways you are sabotaging your success and share them in the COMMENTS BELOW.
If you’ve already conquered them, we’d love to know how you did it.
