Who would actually go out of their way and try to find ways to hold themselves back from success and moving forward? Okay, I’ll admit it… I do! And it really hurts my productivity.I have made a list of the top 3 ways that people sabotage their efforts. I am not thrilled to say this out loud, but I am doing all 3 of these things right now!

Look out for these unsupportable actions before your business productivity really drops:* Over promising and under delivering. In business it is the opposite that will help you excel and be successful. Everyone has hear that you want to under promise and over deliver, this way you look like the hero and a well organized and productive entrepreneur. When you over promise and under deliver, your prospects and clients may get the idea that you can’t handle the work, that you are not in integrity or that you just don’t care. Any one of those thoughts in your customer’s thought can put you right out of business.* Questioning if you really have what it takes. Don’t second guess yourself. Know what you want and take action to accomplish it. Your mindset is a very important element in reaching your goals! You have to believe it is possible and you have to surround yourself with people who believe in you. When you have some thoughts pop up like, “Who do you think you are? Or “Can I really do… do I have what it takes?”… You have to be your own best cheerleader and remind yourself that you can indeed do it, not only can you, but you will do it!!* Information Overwhelm. Biting off more then you can chew with new information, classes, and books can alter your confidence. Spending money and committing to learning more only sets you back unless you have made room in your life and schedule to take the new information into practice by taking action right away. This is especially difficult now that we are fully in the information super highway era! Great information and wonderful people are everywhere and ready to teach us some great new tricks. Be careful… be very careful!!Keep your eye on where you are looking to go. What is it that you want to accomplish? When you sense that self sabotage is entering your mind or environment, do whatever it takes to stop it before it settles in. Believe in yourself and know that if you can dream it then you can do it! Make it a daily habit to keep positive ideas and people in your life. When negativity tries to sneak in turn your focus to the vision of the result you are working toward and take action in that moment to move forward!
