Where do you Sabotage Yourself?

Self sabotage...that thing that we all do.  We all do it some where in our lives.  Mine happens in various forms that I am becoming more and more aware of.  I often look at what other people my age are doing in the areas of work that I am interested in and think I should be doing that, I should be that far by now, I should be more known in my field, etc.

On the same token, I used to think I wasn't good enough to be that far, doing those things I longed to do.  Someday was a favorite word of mine.  But as I once heard Suzi Orman say, "There is Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but there is NO Someday.  Get Rid of That Word!"  

Someday just leaves us to think that yes I will do that, I will have that, I will, I will...which is just reiterating to the subconscious mind that we don't have those things already.  If we believe we don't have what it is we want, then we will continue to not have it.  So we have to eliminate the word Someday from our vocabulary.  

Learning how we sabotage ourselves is the next important step to manifesting the life we want.  Because we can visualize all day long, but if we are resisting in any way, or being critical of ourselves we are limiting our ability to get what it is that we want.  Watch what you say to yourself.  Would you say that to a best friend?  Where do you limit yourself in life?  What limits do you put on yourself?  Limits can be as simple as "I have to get 8 hours of sleep a night, or I hate onions, or I get sick easily."  Those can all be seen as limits, because it is a statement that you are making about yourself and you are setting that in stone in a way.  It is becoming you.  Maybe you tried onions when you were five and didn't like them then, and you have never even opened yourself up to the possibility of liking them again. 

 It is so important to stay open to the possibility of change.  Because life and nature are always changing and so are you.  If we can be open to the possibility of change then things can shift in our life and we have to make room for the shift to occur.  We have to be willing to be open and we have to be willing to shift.  Everything we need we already have, we just have to be open to allowing it to come forth.

To learn more about all of this join me Feb. 6 from 7-9 pm for The Art of Manifesting workshop, this workshop will be taped and available via a podcast.

Keep Shining,
