“Never think that you’re not good enough yourself. A woman or man should never think that. People will take you very much at your own reckoning.” ~Anthony Trollope
Sabotage self-destructs success. It kills momentum. You’ve worked hard to earn accolades, don’t self-destruct and sabotage your dreams. When you pause before the finish line, you are reacting to fear – fear of success, fear of recognition, fear of reaching your goal.
What happens is that instead of planning a celebration to mark your commencement, you do something devastating-like marry an abuser, quit or adopt a nes destructive habit-that you mentally justify. These actions or ones similar to it are indicators of self-doubt.
Challenge your doubt. Ask: How will I handle success? In fact, role play success scenarios, vividly cast the scenery of your victory so that you don’t self-destruct or sabotage your goal. Don’t be a victim, be a victor!
You are good enough.
