At the end of this blog post, I'm going to ask for your advice…
See, over the last few years, I've been expanding out my line of personal transformation programs. Three of them have names that end in "Your Life."
And while those programs are excellent at guiding people to live more full, authentic, joyful, empowered lives… they all lack something.
See, some people don't want to improve the quality of their lives!
They say they do, but when they are given the choice between taking steps to improve their situation – they often walk backwards. That's because we have a lot of subconscious defense mechanisms designed to keep us living our comfortable, familiar, and unfortunately suboptimal stories.
It got me thinking…
What if I made a program that was designed to show people exactly how to screw up their lives?
It's half parody, and half teaching. The way I see it, if people were to look candidly at their experiences, and notice exactly what does NOT work for them…
They might just consider doing the opposite. They might consider that the pain of staying the same is greater than the discomfort of changing in positive, meaningful ways. They might actually USE the techniques, mindsets, videos, and programs that improve their lives in meaningful and LASTING ways.
I'm planning to put together a quick ebook (or audio or video series) with all the different ways that people sabotage their own lives.
For example, I wrote this comment on Facebook:
"Quick tip to create disasters in your relationships! All you have to do is assume another's motives based on his/her actions."
I could expand on that a LOT with personal stories. It's there just to give you a really high-level example.
With that in mind, I'd love for you to share your own thoughts, opinions, and experiences about self-sabotage in your life.
What are some of the thought patterns and personal beliefs you've noticed in others that caused them to completely screw up their lives?
What are some fo the thought patterns and personal beliefs you have (or have had) that limit you from experiencing your greatest potential?
When have you royally F*$&ed up your life, and what did you learn from that experience?
Just reply to this blog post and let me know!
