5 Ways You’re Sabotaging Your Success (& What to Do Instead)

Posted on: May 16, 2014 Category: Business & Entrepreneurship/ Self Mastery


I often find myself uncovering deeper patterns within me that aren’t supporting me in achieving the higher levels of success. Continually working on personal mastery has led to me feeling immense relief + gratitude when I uncover yet another limiting belief or pattern.

(I honestly feel intrigued and excited when I have these ‘Whoa! I see now’ and ‘AHA’ moments of clarity.)

Why? Peeling off emotional blocks and releasing negative energies always expands our ability to receive and support more. Whether it’s more clients, more money, more freedom, or more dreams come true.

So, this week I’ve decided to share 5 Ways You’re Sabotaging Your Success (& What to Do Instead).


1: Getting advice from the wrong people

I believe that the biggest mistake a person can ever make – is to believe and ‘buy into’ the words/advice of the wrong person.

We all have different belief systems that run and operate our lives. When you take on someone else’s belief system and let it run your life (especially if it’s working against you achieving your long-term vision – it can be dangerous.).

What to do instead: Actively take count of who you surround yourself with. Make sure they add value to your life and inspire you to be better. Don’t take advice from people who haven’t yet created what you desire to create in your own life.

2: Believing someone else (when you know better)

Do you discount your own inner and divine guidance by believing someone else – when you know better?

Personally, I ALWAYS check in with myself first, access my own intuition for the answer, and have a solid answer before I consult my coach (if required).

What to do instead: It takes a certain level of emotional maturity to have a level of self-certainty. Take time to tune in. How does it make you feel when you listen to what this person is saying? Does their truth resonate with your truth? What is your truth?

(Remember: You always know better.)

3: Participating in and reacting to drama

I personally find myself unavailable to participate in or react to drama.

Unless it’s someone I deeply care for (in which case I’ll be direct and communicate to them with love) – I choose to stay non-reactive to situations and people that create drama.

What to do instead: Have firm standards and healthy boundaries in terms of what you will accept/tolerate. Stick to your standards. Choose your battles wisely.

4: Not taking time to care for your energy and frequency

Especially important if you’re intuitive and sensitive to energy around you.

What to do instead: Make it a non-negotiable for you to keep your frequency high every day, every time.

5: Discounting your truth

Claim your expertise as the expert of your work and CEO of your business.

Taking a stand for what you believe in (your truth) might make some people unhappy/angry – but you’ll feel much better for honouring yourself. And they’ll respect you for it – which is always icing on the cake.

What to do instead: Take a stand for your own power, trust your own knowing, and follow your own intuition even if it means breaking rapport.
