“I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose 20 pounds.”
“I can’t imagine what I would do with a million dollars.”
“I can’t imagine what it would be to get that job/client.”
If you can’t imagine what it would be like to reach your goal, your brain might react by diminishing your potential for success, and you may find yourself in self-sabotage mode.
“Ever heard we’re scared of failure but we’re even more petrified of success?”
According to Gay Hendricks, author of The Big Leap, we all have an inner ‘thermostat setting’ that determines how much success we allow ourselves to enjoy in all areas of our life. When we exceed our inner thermostat setting, we may do something to sabotage ourselves, causing us to drop back into the old, familiar zone where we feel secure… (skipping the gym, not doing the work, saying no to an invitation that will get us waaaaaay out of our comfort zone, etc.).
