Self-Sabotage is a deliberate limitation placed upon yourself to prevent you from moving forward. Let’s take a journey together and discovery some reason why one would self-sabotage.
First Things First If you are reading this I want you to know firsthand that it is okay to get real honest with yourself and be open to whatever you may find, even if it is something that you may not like. There is a quote that states “The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.” ~Gloria Steinem. This is your time to totally get pissed off and add major value to your life at the same damn time. I believe that in awareness no one can fool you. When you choose to make an honest assessment, and identify your core beliefs and desired feelings you are two steps closer to masterminding the imposed self-undermine.

Saying yes when you really meant hell no
