Are you a victim of self-sabotage?

are you a victim of self-sabotageAre you a victim of self-sabotage? Think about this for a second.

Do you think you have to “yield” all the time and resist your negative emotions?

What is your answer?

Unfortunately, the chances are highly likely that you are a victim of self-sabotage. Maybe not on a daily basis, but we human beings are growing into this world filled with negative thoughts.

The day before, on Monday, the World Cancer Report was published. Everywhere I went I heard people talking about it. It moved me more than ever.

Early evening on Wednesday, I was sitting in a café and next to me two ladies in their fifties, I’d say, talking about the findings of this report. I couldn’t help but overhearing it, as they were somewhat screaming at each other. And I thought, “here it comes …”, but no. One of the ladies told the other one who she recently survived cancer, she got completely cured. Awesome! I was thrilled! [Read more…]
