How To Stop Being Your Own Worst Enemy

Do you sometimes sabotage your own success? Do you sometimes look yourself in the mirror and put yourself down? If you said yes to one of them then read along. You will learn how to stop being your own worst enemy. And learn how to become a team player in your own team instead of playing for the enemy. When you become aware of who you are playing for then you can finally make a change.

Who Is The Most Valuable Player In Your Life?

Answer: it is you! If you don’t believe in yourself no one will. If you don’t value yourself no one will. There will always be people who support and who challenge you, but no one will follow you. If you don’t see yourself as the most important player than no one will.

How To Stop Being Your Own Worst EnemyAre You Insane?

Just think about a person that is on your team in a game of football. Imagine this player would steal the ball and score for the other team. Would you want that guy on your team? Would you trust him again or would it be difficult to let him play on your team again? I bet you wouldn’t want him on your team and you wouldn’t trust him. So why do you talk yourself down? Why do you discourage yourself? It is literally insane if you want to win the game of life.

Do You Believe It?

Do you remember the last time someone said something mean to you and it didn’t matter? Do you know why? Because it didn’t mean anything to you! Isn’t it funny that you believe the enemy in your head more than the one that supports you? It’s pretty crazy. No one really knows why we do it. But it has been called the ego. Do you have a big ego?

On A Subconscious Level

Now, you should be aware that it is a really bad idea to go against yourself, but is it going to help you? The answer is yes and no. The reason is because you probably have been your own worst enemy all your life. You are programmed on a subconscious level to be your own worst enemy. You have to train your brain to reprogram a different software. I would suggest you read Creative Visualization on an in-depth technique on how to do it.

How To Stop Believing In Your Enemy

How does your own worst enemy look like in your head? Does it look like you? What voice does your own worst enemy have? I bet the voice of your enemy in your head sounds exactly like your voice. What if you change that voice when you talk down to yourself? What if you sound like Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck when you beat yourself up? Would you still believe what you are saying? The answer is no, you wouldn’t at all!

I would suggest you try it out the next time you stand in front of a mirror. Talk down to yourself in a very strange and high pitched voice. Make some strange facial expressions as if you would mock yourself and say the things you would normally say. Make it sound and look as ridiculous as possible. You will come to the realization that it is pretty stupid to believe in the negative self-talk. You will also find out that it isn’t that hard to make a change if you stay aware of your thoughts and words.

Conclusion

How to stop being your own worst enemy isn’t that difficult, is it? It just takes a little bit of awareness and practice. I really suggest you start practicing visualizations and focus on the voice in your head that wants only the best for you. Being your own worst enemy has a lot to do with loving yourself. If you would love yourself more you would stop talking down to yourself so much. Read also Learn To Love Yourself for a more in-depth article.
