We all know the self-sabotage deal. We talk ourselves out of things, make ourselves not feel worthy and even just spend way too long procrastinating before taking action.
Meanwhile, all those golden opportunities in life just pass us by. The worst sign of self-sabotage is perfectionism.
It affects us all and before we know it, we’ve managed to make ourselves feel not worthy and become a low energy mess. Trust us, we’ve coached 100’s of people and time and time again, perfectionism comes up as the number 1 cause of self-sabotage.

3 Signs of Self-Sabotage
Sign 01. Self-Talk
We all are guilty of self-sabotaging through our own self-talk. We talk ourselves out of things, we say we’re not good enough and we even let it rule our actions and what we do. It’s time to stop the negative self-talk and make your self-talk immaculate.
Sign 02. Procrastination
If you’re spending way too much time thinking about every action that you take, you could be a victim of procrastination. We all do it but it’s important to keep it under control and with a lid on it. Stop allowing procrastination to rule what you do and begin to take action.
Sign 03. Perfectionism
One of the biggest self-sabotages that we all do is through perfectionism. We fear showing up and end up not feeling worthy. Stop trying to be a perfectionist and focus on just doing the best that you can do.
