Many competent people "self-sabotage" themselves every day by overreacting emotionally and hurting their relationships — both at work and at home-- and by staying stuck in habits that hurt them, such as procrastination, overeating, disorganization, avoiding conflict ... the list goes on and on.

Many professionals, on the other hand, manage well, because they have figured out how to stop self-sabotage or have never done that in the first place. They respond with a level head — even if ready to "blow a fuse" and usually can

Adapt to workplace changes — even those that are tough to swallow
Stick with difficult challenges when solutions don't come easily
Follow through on plans ... turn "good intentions" into reality ... and meet more goals
Develop the steady self-control it takes to stand up for yourself and deal with conflicts positively
Break on-the-job habits that hurt you, like procrastination, disorganization, and others
You can bring more discipline into your personal and professional life by creating healthier routines and relationships. Maybe you are stuck - and either don't have "a clue" or have many "clues" and don't know what to do.

Here are a few ways to create a better emotional relationship with yourself- and that will surely transfer to others- just give these a try:)!:

Write down three things - people - situations you are grateful for each day
Write personal affirmations and place them on your dashboard , on computer and in the bathroom
Practice effective communication- be assertive v. reactive
Leave the scene, when possible if you find your stress/frustration/anger quotient rising and take a "time-out" to do any of the above! and/or punch the ceiling, go into the car and scream, do EFT (emotional freedom techniques, tapping)
Practice relaxation and/or meditation on a regular basis
Exercise often
Enjoy nature
Have fun! and Smile :)
Eat and sleep well
All the best with this- it takes determination, perseverance & internal motivation to succeed at anything. Trust that these techniques help and practice them~ and then write your own success story! I'm listening...
