What the heck is sabotage and how does it happen?
Sabotage can happen because of our inner rebellion or outer forces like people around us
Why are we taking about sabotage? Life on Purpose my friend! Body, Mind, Soul Fitness too.
Ready to figure this out together?
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV
What exactly is sabotage?
Sabotage looks like interference, disruption or prevention. Sabotage can pop up when we decide to do something different with our health, our schedule, our mindset, even our finances.
It comes from our fear or other peoples fear.
I know your probably thinking why would other people be afraid of me getting health or getting out of debit? Ahh, great question. The short answer is if you get your finances together you MAY not go out with them any more or go shopping with them any more or be a partner in complaining about how broke you are – really. It’s about their brain clinging to belonging.
See our brain always wants love, safety and belonging. It even holds on to things that hurt us or at the very least, no longer serve us, if it has decided it meets the love, safety, belonging test.
We do the same thing to ourselves – we sabotage out of fear and/or guilt. Sometimes we feel guilty when the people in our lives feel threatened by our new life choices and we sabotage ourselves to stay accepted – to belong.
Other times it’s fear. Fear of who we will be when we lose the weight – where will we fit in? Fear of who we will be when we create healthy habits that include moving our bodies – who will I be then?
How do we stop inner sabotage?
Recognize our own patterns for sabotage. Decide to take responsibility for our health and not hide behind our excuses. When we hide behind them we stop ourselves from becoming who God crafted us to be – we stop ourselves from becoming the highest version of ourselves. When we show up for ourselves we are empowered!
Why we can fall into self sabotage and why it sometimes comes from others.
