self sabotage happens when you spend more time thinking about what you can’t do than thinking about what you actually can do.
Like the story of the two wolves, the wolf you feed will live. When you feed the wolf of self doubt by getting stuck in endless negative thought patterns, impossibility becomes your reality and you start acting from those false assumptions. Actively working against yourself.
When you find yourself thinking about what you can’t do, think two thoughts about what you can so you can start and undo the negative pattern.
Do it with mindfulness. Recognize. Name. Accept.
