Self-sabotaging behaviors prevent you from conditioning yourself for success. And changing those long, established behavior patterns like self-sabotage is as difficult as recognizing and understanding them.
How, then, can you eliminate sabotaging beliefs and emotions? First, understand and accept yourself before attempting to understand and accept others. You have to take a journey within for personal evaluation. This means looking inside yourself and listening to your inner dialogue or self-talk. Remain open minded to what you see and hear when understanding your beliefs. This is essential when making constructive changes in your behaviors. Deciding how far and deep you want to go before introspection is your decision. However, you can take your life to a new level when you discover empowering insights to eliminate damaging self-talk and undermining behaviors.
Trying to realize our ambitions, even if we don’t always meet them, is preferable to not having the courage or motivation to take the risk. So not making any resolutions because we fear that we’ll break them is having a defeatist attitude! As we allow procrastination to become an insidious habit, it stops us from leading more fulfilling lives. Do not let this happen to you.

It’s not what happens to you but what you do with what happens to you that makes the difference. Here are three easy ways that you can always come out on top.
Struggling to stick with your diet program? You aren’t alone. Millions of people worldwide start up and fall off diet programs every day. Why is it so hard to stick with something? Why they can’t carry out a plan once and for all?
When I set out on my health and fitness journey more than 15 years ago, my goal was simply to get in the best shape as possible. At that time, it meant losing weight and developing nice lean muscles. Over the years my goal has evolved to living an overall healthy and fit lifestyle which includes eating healthy most of the time and staying as active as possible. What I did not realize was that by living a healthy and fit lifestyle, I would also experience anti-aging benefits as an added bonus!! So, if you are the type of person who would rather enjoy a sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy eating habits instead of giving your muscles a little more stretch, you better think twice. That lifestyle speeds up aging. How? Well, inactivity accelerates aging in two ways: it decreases our muscle strength and gives us extra pounds.
