Stop the Self-Sabotage

There’s lots of reasons why we do this and it’s different from person to person. But I think for the most part it comes down to not feeling worthy enough, good enough, our lack of ability to believe in ourselves another reason could be that we don’t feel our needs are being met. Or what about when you need to accomplish something, I can’t, it’s to hard, I’ll do it later, no one’s going to listen to me….

Now the answer to the self-sabotage is not the quick fix we all would like. It’s a lot of self-love. It’s a lot of unearthing the source of the issues. Where did they come from and why have I held on to them for so long? What am I getting out of holding on to these beliefs? Turning self-sabotage into self-love is going to take a lot of time, patience and commitment.

Some great ways to get out of self-sabotage:

Be mindful in your daily activities and where you start to struggle. What triggered it? What behaviours are you demonstrating? What daily goal have you been struggling to accomplish? Are you procrastinating?

Stop focusing on the negative, keep track of your negative thoughts, evaluate after a week of keeping track. Then look at them and ask yourself are these true?

Get yourself organized! This is an area I struggle with and am starting out with a new system that works in the 4 quarters of the year. So I will need to report back on how this turns out!

Start a new behaviour and make it a habit, it can be anything. As long as it’s positive and is moving you in the right direction.

Stop focusing so much on your end goal. Start with small achievable things each day that work towards the end goal. For example you want to make a 7-figure income this year, you first need to make $10, $100, $500 you get the picture.

Work on your self-esteem. This takes time and you need to focus on the small positive stuff first. Just like the goal setting. Small achievable steps. I will also be doing a 5-day Self-Esteem Challenge this January in my Facebook Group

Remember it’s okay to fail. “It’s okay if you try and fail. But it’s not okay if you fail to try”

Ask for help. Most people would be honoured if you asked them. You could miss out on some fantastic opportunities if you don’t.

Don’t forget to reward yourself! It’s a lot of hard work and if you have a reward for accomplishing something it will give you some more motivation.




I just finished up a Live on Facebook about confidence and it’s one of those scary things, where it seems like you’ve got it or you don’t!  And everyone including the dog wants to know how to gain confidence.  But to be honest I think the easiest way is “Fake It Till You Make It”.

Confidence can literally change your life.  It will take you from where you are now and hurtle you into unbelievable possibilities.  Take me for example: Not long ago I would never have dreamed of going on “LIVE” (no way!!!!) I would never have posted in groups or even interacted in them, nor would I have hired a coach and connected with so many fantastic ladies!!!! And there is NO WAY I would have posted a picture of me in a bathing suit!!!

No matter how you look at it, having confidence will definitely make a positive impact on your life in some way or another.

Don’t underestimate the power of your mind! “Doing confidence, fear or doubt” all stem from your mindset.  There is a chain of events that start with your mindset and end in your actions. That’s why working on your mindset is so important.  All of it will flow so much easier if you believe something positive and helpful instead or something that is counterproductive from your goals.

What I have found works awesome is to become the version of you that would____!

Let’s be honest here none of us would be here right now if we didn’t want to be doing all those great big dreams of ours or would any of us be here if there wasn’t some part of us that believed we can!

So what we need to do is to tap into that vision of ourselves that WOULD_________!  Imagine how that vision of yourself would be. How would you hold yourself? How would you act? How would you dress? Get a crystal clear vision of yourself in your mind of what you’d be like.  Now bit by bit become her!  You don’t have to start with the great big scary stuff, start with so easily implemented stuff and work your way up to the big stuff!

Everyday picture this confident vision of yourself and every day take a step closer to that vision of yourself.

Now there isn’t going to be any overnight miracles here, but I can promise that if you start becoming this new confident vision of yourself, you will grow in your confidence with a strong foundation.  Like anything else, confidence is a muscle and if you want it to grow strong you have to use it every day.

First, off gratitude itself is the act of noticing & appreciating all of the good things in your life.

So from there, a gratitude practice is training yourself to notice & appreciate the good things, then expressing gratitude for them.

Gratitude promotes an abundance mindset.

Sounds simple & in theory it is, but training yourself to focus on what you’re grateful for, instead of all the negative going on around you & in the world, takes practice & commitment.

*Why is gratitude important*

Having a grateful mindset changes the way we see the world around us & how we think. Gratitude shifts your perspective so you begin to notice & appreciate all the good things around you, which in turn you start thinking more positively as a result.

Focusing on gratitude helps you actively change your mindset, through patterns & perspective.  By focusing on what you’re grateful for trains your mind to look for the positive & takes you out of a cycle of negativity.


Studies show practicing gratitude benefits:


Better relationships

improved health

more resiliency

better sleep

higher self-esteem

to name a few

It’s amazing how being mindful throughout your day to focus on gratitude can have such a huge impact on your life.

Now how to start a gratitude practice?

It’s super easy & doesn’t cost a thing!

All you need is a few minutes every day

Make it a habit

Habits take practice & consistency to form. So commit to working on your gratitude practice a few minutes each day.  By focusing on the positive to be grateful for, the more you’ll find to feel grateful for. Keep it simple make a list of at least 3 new things each day you’re grateful for.

As the nice sunny weather is upon us (finally), it’s time to talk about some precautions.  Photosensitivity applies to the topical use of essential oils only, not ones that are taken internally.

When using photosensitive oils topically avoid the sun, tanning beds or any UV light for at least 12 hours.

Please be vigilant and check your warning labels well, some oils such as Bergamot can cause the skin to burn severely up to 72 hours after applied topically and align yourself with a leader who can properly guide you in safe usage of your essential oils.

Why does this happen? It’s something called furocoumarins in citrus oils applied topically, bind to the skin and when exposed to prolonged direct UV light, can cause a reaction resulting in burns.

Why dōTERRA?

Let me count the reasons:

  1. The oils are fabulous

pure, high quality, optimally-sourced oils are the heart of dōTERRA’s success.  The oils are sourced indigenously & wild-harvested from where the plant thrives in it’s natural habitat.  Where a plant is grown has a major impact on it’s purity & potency.  Using local farmers who have grown these plants for generations ensured that the plants are not only properly cared for, but also grown in an environment that maximizes the oils, potential. They quite literally go to the ends of the earth looking for the best raw material so they can provide the most amazing potent oils possible.

2. The Company

Founded in 2008 by experts in the Essential oil industry, there are no outside investors. The owners personally funded the start up & own the company 100%. They took 2nd mortgages and personal loans, they worked without pay so that they could make their own choices early on.  dōTERRA is now the largest debt free oil company in the world.

3. Their Testing

For transparent accountability, they created their own standard called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG), this is verified by 3rd party labs. Stringent testing is done throughout the whole process, starting with monitoring soil quality.  The oils that fail the testing are simply rejected. Other than the careful distillation of the oils from the plant material, no other processing takes place. They are aromatic extracts with nothing added or removed.

4. Healing Hands

The Healing Hands foundation is dōTERRA’s non-profit organization, it’s funded by members, employees & the executives. Healing Hands has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and has changed the lives of many in several countries.

5. The Education

On their website, you’ll find hours & hours of free education, recipes, guidance & support for those who use the oils &/or those building a business. Company-wide resources are also supplemented by team resources from forums to weekly calls & social media groups. Product support of any kind is an email or phone call away.
