Discover Which Saboteurs are Holding Back Your Business Success...
The Source of The Saboteurs
Saboteurs develop during our childhood to protect and help you cope with the real and imagined threats that we all experience as children, the real and imagined threats to our physical and emotional survival. Think of them as a coping mechanism.
As an adult, you no longer need them, but by this time they have become unseen occupants of your mind. Your Saboteurs have patterns of feeling, reacting and thinking which become soft-coded into your brain through neural pathways. When these neural pathways are activated, you are "hijacked" by your Saboteurs and think, feel and act using their patterns.
The Lies Saboteurs Tell You
Saboteurs will tell you that they are good for you. That they have helped you to achieve all that you have achieved so far.
There is an element of truth in that your Saboteurs have used Negative Reinforcement to PUSH you to improve and achieve through guilt, blame, anxiety, fear, shame etc. However, you can achieve so much more when you are PULLED by Positive Reinforcement through your inherent feelings of creativity, curiosity, compassion, love for yourself and others, and love of contribution and self expression, making you less stressed and far happier.
How To Defeat Your Saboteurs

Finds faults with self, others, and circumstances. Causes much of our disappointment, anger, regret, guilt, shame, and anxiety.
Focusing on the positive and pleasant in an extreme way. Avoiding difficult and unpleasant tasks and conflicts.
Anxiety-based need to take charge and control situations and people’s actions to one’s own will. High anxiety and impatience when that is not possible.
Dependent on constant performance and achievement for self-respect and self-validation. Highly focused on external success, leading to unsustainable workaholic tendencies and loss of touch with deeper emotional and relationship needs.
Intense and exclusive focus on the rational processing of everything, including relationships. Can be perceived as cold, distant, and intellectually arrogant.
Continuous intense anxiety about all the dangers and what could go wrong. Vigilance that can never rest.
Indirectly tries to gain acceptance and affection by helping, pleasing, rescuing, or flattering others. Loses sight of own needs and becomes resentful as a result.
Restless, constantly in search of greater excitement in the next activity or constant busyness. Rarely at peace or content with the current activity.
Perfectionism and a need for order and organisation taken too far.
Emotional and temperamental as a way to gain attention and affection. An extreme focus on internal feelings, particularly painful ones. Martyr streak.
