Greetings Buddies:

Here is part two of the article about self sabotage where some suggestions are made:


Here are five great ways to overcome fear of success and unwanted behaviors:

1. Continually tell yourself that you welcome challenges. Stay willing to challenge yourself to your maximum ability. Move forward in your commitment by eliminating all self-defeating words and phrases from your vocabulary and replace them with positive affirmations.
2. Believe that whatever goals you set out to achieve, you’ll give them 100% effort. Stop providing excuses to blame yourself and others. Believe that your success motivates you to eliminate all the ‘shoulds,’ ‘woulds,’ ‘can’ts’ and ‘musts’ from your vocabulary.
3. Be the best you can. Continually visualize yourself achieving your health and fitness goals. Stretch all your mental, emotional, and physical power within you. Believe and feel that you are a successful, enthusiastic, motivated, and powerful person. Remember, your beliefs significantly impact the way you feel and act.
4. Negative words from others can crush your motivation like nothing else, so disregard self-defeating statements from others. Let others know you don’t want to hear their negative comments.
5. Success is achieved by continually expressing positive self-talk directed at developing your self-esteem, self-confidence, enthusiasm, and motivation. “I can do it,” “great effort,” and “awesome workout” are excellent expressions of your enthusiasm, influencing your success in health and fitness and the rest of your life.
When we consider moving toward our dreams and desires, a part of us automatically looks ahead to the possible challenges and barriers — especially the negative ones.
You have the power within you and the choice to control negativity and self-sabotaging behavior by creating positive beliefs and envisioning positive outcomes of success and accomplishment. Eliminating your negative thoughts is a process, not an action.

Greetings Buddies:

As some of you may recall, I am doing a 90 challenge at my gym. The trainer likes to send out emails with articles and ideas to motivate us. I thought his last post was interesting about fear of success and how we self sabotage when close to our goals. Here is an excerpt:


The minute you see success, you seem to fall off the wagon. You cheat on your nutrition program, you slack on your workouts, and you skip your cardio sessions. What’s most perplexing and frustrating is that you know exactly what you should do, but no matter how hard you try, you can’t get yourself motivated to do it. It’s as if some force beyond your control is sabotaging your program and your fat-loss results.

Unfortunately, you’re actually blocking your own success with feelings of being overwhelmed as you experience results and get closer to your goal. You allow yourself to become dominated by these unproductive feelings and behaviors, and your state of mind affects your actions. You’re not able to accept the feelings of success, happiness, and power associated with your health and fitness accomplishments.
