Self Sabotage and How Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Can Eliminate It

Have you ever said or felt that one of the following statements is true about you?

 

"How come I can't lose weight" (control my temper/get up on time/or whatever).

 

"What's wrong with me?   I know I shouldn't do that."

 

"I must be sabotaging myself (again)."

 

When I ask students in my classes if and of the above is true for them, I usually get a large variety of similar self-talk patterns.  

 

What is striking in every class I have taught around the U.S. and overseas, is that every person raises their hand when I next ask them if they have ever, at least once, engaged in self-sabotage.  

 

Self-sabotage (dark, deep inner forces over which we have no control) is a concept that was created by Sigmund Freud, the "Father Of Modern Mental Health'.   Just for the record, Freud snorted a lot of cocaine and really didn't like women so, I find his "mental health' theories just a tad suspect.  

 

The point here is that a frightening number of people subscribe to the belief that they were created with an inner terrorist that forces them to "self-sabotage'.   What a terrible way to live.
