Are you working on achieving goals and not seeing daily results? The cause is deeply rooted within you in the form of self-doubt, which sabotages any form of progress, thus causing frustrations in the end. Your thoughts are the backbone of achievements whereas self-sabotage, is always actively trying to get in your way so that you don’t act on situations you’re supposed to. Avoid being a victim to self doubt! 

In this episode, we identify self-sabotage as any behaviour that creates problems in our daily lives and interferes with achieving our long-term goals. It exists actively, whenever we are ready to do something, then end up taking so much time before acting on the plan, and exists passively when we add more things to our day to avoid doing activities directed towards our goals. Let’s listen in and learn what causes self-sabotage and how to keep track of our goals to achieve them consistently.
