Have you ever noticed how often you step into self-sabotage by giving all your attention to some unnecessary task when it comes time to really do what you need to do to move forward in your life?
I know for me personally, cleaning the toilet suddenly becomes really compelling every time I hit the time slot in my schedule where I'm supposed to make those reach out calls.
That toilet can be gross for a month, but on the day where I really told myself authoritatively "TODAY IS THE DAY I'M GOING TO MAKE THOSE FREAKING CALLS!" I am suddenly hit with a skin crawling intolerance to bathroom grossness. WTF!?!
Self-sabotage in all it's glory.
For you, it might show up as finding yourself always overcome with a sudden onset of overwhelming, earth stopping fatigue that requires "a power-nap" when it's time to take on the onerous task that you're uncomfortable doing.
I speak from experience, and to be totally transparent, that experience is not always a thing of the past. I'm just good at identifying it now, and re-directing myself when I see it at play.
So here's one of my "Power Tips" as I like to call them.
When you feel that icky feeling in your gut at the thought of doing something which has the potential of unleashing your life:
- Examine the task you're tempted to run away from to see if it is taking you towards your dreams and goals.
- Acknowledge that that particular task is the perfect thing for you to do to break through to the next level of your success and break free from the heaviness of guilt and shame you carry at the end of the day when you don't do what you know you should.
- Re-frame the label of that icky feeling from "Anxiety", or "Self-doubt", or "Overwhelm" to the energy and presence of whatever is your source of inspiration and protection- the Universe, God, Source energy... that thing that you ask for help.
- Tell yourself that this is that Presence- powering you up for success, assuring your confidence, and guiding you to the perfect results.
Think about it...how could all that NOT have a sensation in your body? The energy of Power, the energy of Success, the energy of Confidence?
It's the dragon in your mind that tells you it's fear and insecurity so that it can keep you limited and under it's control! It's the voice of your limiting beliefs and saboteurs crying out in their fear because you are getting ready to take the very action that will transform your relationship with them and leave them behind and powerless!
Isn't that a motivating thought! Taking back your control and leaving your self-sabotage powerless, instead of it leaving you curled up in a ball feeling like a loser!
So get your rear in gear, and take that action, and see how you feel at the end of the day! Write it down so you remember how fabulous, empowered, and awesome you felt.
In fact, to help you take the action, first visualize yourself telling your partner, friend, lover, or parent, how great a day you had because you did what had been holding you back from your success and you feel like a Super Hero!
So take yourself from anxious to awesome, and from struggle and self-sabotage to success and joy. Get a turbo boost for the journey by grabbing a free "Skyrocket Your Inner Game" session with me to test drive a few more techniques for reining in your brain and unleashing your life.
