Self- Sabotaging is defined as the ability to “deliberately destroy, damage, or obstruct something” (Oxford dictionary). Sounds pessimistic, doesn’t it? But a lot of us practice it diligently day in and day out, year after year. We get programmed since childhood to listen to this non-stop tape inside our heads that speaks to us in the form of an inner critic. It’s the voice that pinpoints what’s wrong with us, why can’t we succeed despite working hard and how things will not be any different. The constant chatter, though sometimes pushes us to do better, can backfire by bringing the focus on failures if practiced excessively. What makes it worse is that we don’t even recognize that it is even happening.
