We do so many things to ourselves that sabotages our own progress.

What are those things that mostly bring low your brilliant success? We call them SELF-DEFEATING PATTERN
Sometimes I like to watch kids playing with d building blocks toys. As innocent as these kids are, they just venture into a creative tendency that the adults find funny. I mean, these kids can build anything from those blocks, but we alws know where the weak link is. #Audacious
You know what, when these children are angry or tired, they just dismantle the creative piece they had.

Same applies to we adults, you build something meaningful and suddenly, you also pull it down.
How many of us have built a beautiful career, great business, good reputation and suddenly by our own selves bring those things down.
I heard the story of a man who had a good number of volunteers and clients at his organization, however, in one of his talks to the whole, he made a statement that demean every other person in that place except his wife & that was the beginning of the end.
It is called SELF-DEFEATING bcos it is always caused by oneself. If they are outside factors, we device strategies to confront them, but if they are from one, it has to take acknowledgement by one to be able to wriggle thru a solution. If you don't know, wahala dey o
Just like those kids destroying their works, adults also do same. The difference however must be that where the kid cannot retrace the step, adults have a good mind to do so.

Truth is, one can be ignorant of these #SelfDefeatingPatterns.
The adult life is a responsible one, you take the blame or shine for your actions or inactions.
Don't inflict on yourself what you will regret.
Some common #SelfDefeatingPattern as researched are enumerated below;
1. Negative speaking
2. Doubt
3. Fear

It is no longer a secret that whatever we say is a seed, either of discourse or gain.
And one thing is always sure of seeds, they have great plantation within them. The harvest will surely come.
When people make statements like, "oh, how are the mighty falling", they are most times reminiscing on what has happened to that mighty, most times how they caused their own downfall.
A story was told of a man that once said even if cankerworm or destruction enter into his wealth, they cannot finish it, they'll only eat the ones they can eat & leave.
Years down the line, nothing is left, the cankerworm did eat everything 😀.
With your words, you can within seconds destroy everything u have built all ur life.
With ur words, all those behind you can withdraw. With your words, you can lose your reputation. With your words, you can lose that contract. With your words, you can lose everything
DOUBT is also a #SelfDefeatingPattern. When you don't have evidence/fact about something, doubt is inevitable.
One of my mentors always say this, "Don't go into anything saying let's see if it will work, rather go in with the mindset to make it work".
Doubt has a way of robbing us of what is rightfully ours. When you doubt, you play into the other side of courage and loss is inevitable.
Finally, FEAR. This grips anyone that has it. Fear is a fruit of ignorance. If you know so well about that thing, you will fear less.
Fear can kill, fear is dangerous, fear is a destructive tool. Fear paralyses.
F - False
E - Evidence
A - Appearing
R - Real

Fear is defined as above, it is always False, never true, but always want you to believe it is true.
You can press that panic button and crush the whole system in a twinkle.
I close by painting this picture, consider that you built a mansion, state of the art, latest technology, comfort at d highest order, underground for security, collapsible gadgets etc. U av spent millions of dollars on the building, then the contractor gave you a remote control
With a press on the remote control, the house will be reduced to dust.
Then, because of pain someday, you press the button, who have you caused pain?
The answer is yours to give
My final words... Watch you to save you!
