We've all been there — scrolling through social media, (seemingly) seeing others thrive, and wondering, "Why isn't that me?" Good question… So, why is that not you? Often the biggest roadblock to your success is not the competition or your offerings; it's you. So let's get real about tackling yourself and your own mindset. Because that’s what’s keeping your light from shining the way it should.
The Psychology Behind Self-Sabotage
First things first, what exactly is self-sabotage? It's when we actively or passively take steps to prevent ourselves from reaching our goals. Women, particularly female solopreneurs, often face unique challenges when it comes to this. We're talking about Imposter Syndrome — the belief that you're a fraud and don't deserve your success. There's also perfectionism — feeling like anything less than perfect is unacceptable, which results in procrastination or avoidance. And let's not forget the fear of "being too much," which leads to playing small to make others comfortable. Sounds familiar? You're not alone.
Take Control over Your Mind
Acknowledging you are the only one holding yourself back, is the first step to conquering self-sabotage. So, what is it for you? Is it fear of failure? Fear of success? Worrying about what others will think? All those voices in your head are so tiring! Wouldn’t it be great if your mind would just shut up for a bit? So how about I show you how you can start taking back control of your mind?
Identifying Your Saboteurs
These voices in your head, we’d like to call them Saboteurs. And these pesky characters fill you with doubt, stress, and anxiety. They’re like unwelcome roommates who never pay rent. They mess with your performance, your well-being, and even your relationships. Stop them from running the show! Knowledge is power, and identifying your Saboteurs is the first step in reclaiming your mind. Are you the Hyper-Achiever who's never satisfied? The Hyper-Vigilant expecting danger around every corner? Or perhaps the Stickler, eternally nitpicking, because it is never good enough? There are 9 Different Saboteurs, and knowing yours is the first step to disempowering them.
