The world will put countless obstacles in your path but none will be as big as the ones you create for yourself.

Stop Self-Sabotaging Your Success.

A thread...
Simply put, self-sabotage is when your logical, conscious mind (the side of you that says you need to eat healthily and save money) is at odds with your subconscious mind (the side of you that stress-eats chocolates and goes on shopping sprees)
1. Understand self-sabotage.

Self-sabotage is when we do something that gets in the way of our intent, or of our bigger dreams and goals.

We want something, but somehow we never accomplish it.

Why? Because somewhere deep in our subconscious we’re fighting against that goal.
2. Recognize Self-Sabotaging habits.

What self-destructive habits, patterns and mindsets are holding you back?

- Procrastination
- Negative thinking.
- Perfectionism.

Are all forms of self-sabotage. Perfection is an impossible standard that keeps you from doing anything
3. Identify root cause.

Often, self-destructive habits are rooted in our feelings of self-worth.

You don’t feel like you deserve to be successful. You’re plagued with feelings of inadequacy, even when you’re trying to overcompensate by setting high goals for yourself.
It’s better to be at the helm of your failure than having unknown circumstances blindside you.

Work on identifying and acknowledging what is causing you to sabotage yourself, and then start making changes to stop those behaviors.
4. Find your inner positive voice.

Fear is often at the root of what holds us back. We fear that our inner critical voice is right.

We worry that we don’t deserve happiness, aren’t tough enough or simply don’t have it in us.

Put aside that harsh inner voice of "I can’t"
That negative internal dialogue is a pattern of self-limiting thoughts. Start replacing that critical inner voice with positive, encouraging thoughts.

Once you start seeing the areas and ways in which you are limiting yourself, you can start effectively countering that behavior5
5. Set goals and make plans

Often times, we struggle because we don’t know what to expect

The unknown make us feel on uncertain, instead of moving forward with confidence, we respond to situations negatively

We allow ourselves to crumble, then we retreat, feeling incompetent
The best way to counter this is to lay down solid plans and goals for the future

By having firm plans for each step we take, we feel more confident about our intentions and what we’re doing

Do this and you can take control of your life and banish self-sabotaging behavior

How to be a sleazy sales person

A thread...
Turning one-time clients into repeat customers comes down to two things:

1. Providing quality service that offers solutions to client’s needs

2. Maintaining a relationship that keeps your name on their mind so that you are the first person they come to when they need help
Above are things you should do.

Now, below are things you shouldn't do.

1. Your pitch is not more valuable than the client’s time.
Just like you, clients have a lot to do and very little time to get it all done.

If he has 5mins to talk, make your pitch in 5mins

A thread.
Almost everyone becomes an expert when it comes to giving opinions

Most opinions you'd read are from those who have never tried it or at best — they’ve only tried it once or twice.

At worst, those opinions are from people are clever as the last forum post they read.
There are a lot of myths flying around that could.

- Put you off trying it
- Cost you a lot of money and/or time.

Let’s talk about the biggest myths I can think of right now and possible solutions.
