The Number One Way To Avoid Self Sabotage

We’re all battling internal demons — it’s part of being human.

What matters is how you deal with them.

Your inner demons could be the voice inside your head that makes you second-guess your decisions or doubt your self-worth. Listening to these demons could derail any progress to career or life success.

Avoiding self-sabotage and ignoring the demons comes down to one thing: you have to be your own advocate.

Talk to yourself in the same way you would talk to the person you love most in the world. We would never say many of the negative things to our children or best friends that we tell ourselves. These things tear us down and tell us that we’re no good.

Instead, we need to be gentle with ourselves, including how we talk to ourselves. Talk to yourself in a way that is loving and caring.

Great people are loving towards themselves. Becoming your own advocate can help you feel more relaxed and confident as you believe in what you have to offer the world and stand up for yourself with positive thoughts.
