So, in yesterday’s post we talked about self-sabotage, something that affects even the most productive and best in the world.
But how do you know if you’re off-track?
If self-sabotage is evidently normal, how can we identify where we are and what we need to do to move forward?
Our goals are important to us. They matter.
Here’s what I have identified from working with people all over the world.
You are off-track only when you stop.
Falling over, failing, tripping over your own feet, sending the wrong email, saying the wrong thing to a prospect, falling off the wagon, having a cigarette, losing a bit of money, eating an extra helping of fries, sleeping in more than you wanted…..any one of these could be used by somebody to feel bad about themselves and stop.
And if you stop, you have truly failed.
Understand that self-sabotage is normal. It happens.
What you must do is take the next step, in-spite of the slight setback.
If you don’t, then you are truly off-track.
If you do, all you need to do is rinse and repeat every time you have a setback.
Do me a favour and share your insights on this post below. Love to hear what you think.
In tomorrow’s post I’m going to talk about the antidote to the negative feelings we experience when things go wrong.
