Most of us struggle with an invisible insurgent character in our epic life’s adventure story. This meddlesome character is the Saboteur. Our Saboteur is speaking half-truths, exaggerations, and outright lies into our minds. Saboteur’s often disguise their mental mischief by impersonating the trusted voices of respected people from our pasts. Perhaps you think you hear an overprotective parent whispering, “you are bad,” or a judgmental teach saying, “you are not as smart as the really good kids,” or a distant cold father who sits in silence, proving you don’t deserve his attention, praise, or love because you are lazy and ”haven’t worked hard enough to be the winner.”
Once you begin to recognize the Saboteur’s voice, you have the power to evict them from living rent free in your mind. I encourage my clients to visualize an actual character behind their Saboteur’s voice and then imagine having a powerful remote control with a big red mute button. When you become aware of your Saboteur’s trash talking, simply press mute and get on with your journey in peace.
You are not an imposter! If you believe you are an imposter, find and mute your Saboteur.
Coaches offer counter self-espionage to help you shine the light of truth and expose your Saboteur for the fraud they are.
