6 Ways You Are Your Own Worst Enemy
Enemy (n): a person who hates or opposes another person and tries to harm that person.
Can you think of somebody that is trying to make your life difficult? Maybe it’s somebody who’s not trying to make your life difficult, but they’re still making your life difficult. Can you think of that person? Can you think of the person who really affects your happiness in a negative way? Someone that hurts you?
You probably have a number of people you can think in your mind right now… how about that person who tries to keep you from succeeding? Is that a relative? Is that a person at work? Is that somebody that you grew up with? Is that your leader?
The thing about enemies is…they can keep you from achieving your potential and they can be a massive distraction. It’s easy to point out other enemies in life.
Here’s the question I want you to ask: “Am I my own worst enemy? Am I the one who steals my happiness?”
We see enemies almost everywhere and point fingers, but are blind to our greatest enemy: ourselves.

Here are 6 ways we become our own worst enemies:
- Procrastination is a CHOICE to hurt ourselves, and to not deal with something well. It’s fueled by false beliefs that keep us from success
- Believing lies is one of our greatest blindspots, and the fuel for the other 5 areas in this episode. So many of our bad decisions can be traced back to the lies we’ve been told, or we tell ourselves.
- Lacking healthy boundaries is allowing negativity and destruction (you may not even see) into your life. There are boundaries, walls, and healthy boundaries – it’s important to know the difference.
- Not feeling good enough is not about self-esteem, it’s about understanding your worth. This is a belief system passed onto us that will never be sustainable, and continue to hold you back.
- Isolation is where some of our worst decisions are made.
- Blaming others instead of taking responsibility gives you an unrealistic view of yourself which hurts any attempt at personal growth. Have you ever told your boss, “Sorry I was late, but I was stuck in traffic – I couldn’t have gotten here on time!” ? Blaming circumstances like traffic, keeps us stuck. It’s one of the ways we become our own worst enemies.
