Self-sabotage is when we actively or passively take steps to prevent ourselves from reaching our goals. This behaviour can affect nearly every aspect of life be it a relationship, a career goal, or a personal goal such as weight loss.

Ever wonder why a lot of people seem burnt-out and resentful… I sat down with my daughter a few days ago and had a little chat about her first few weeks at Highschool. She said as many teenagers do… “it’s been fine”.One thing she did comment on was the motto for the year. Apparently, the principal did a whole speech that the new school motto would be “We at (name of school) put other’s need before our own”… and he added… if you can do this then you will fit right in at (name of school). My daughter’s response… “I guess I won’t fit in”.
Losing self-confidence can happen to anyone. Maybe you had a bad experience with a client or received a complaint. Or maybe you didn’t receive the promotion that you interviewed for and so badly wanted. This type of situation can leave you with disappointment, doubt and a loss in your self-confidence. Although something we have likely all experienced at least once in our lives it is an upsetting feeling and it can oftentimes feel hard to bounce back from.
We all know that having confidence is important. At its core, confidence is our belief in our own abilities and ourselves. Although it sounds easy confidence does not come naturally for everyone.
