Last Sunday morning I was having breakfast in the hotel
with some attendees of my most recent fitness seminar.
As I was drinking some orange juice I overheard Randy,
the guy sitting next to me, mention the term “self-sabotage”
when talking about himself.
I stopped drinking my juice and paused.
But not for long. It was time to obliterate some wrongful notions
about the mind.
“There is no such thing as self-sabotage,” I said.
“Huh?” said Randy, not believing what he was hearing,
but wanting to listen to more.
“A lot of people teach ridiculous things about the human
mind. They’ll tell you that you have an Inner Saboteur
inside your subconscious mind, and he’s doing everything
he can to destroy you and your life. It’s absolute nonsense.”
Randy and the others at the table sat forward in their chairs.
It became apparent to me at that moment that everyone had
gotten hammered with the concept of the Inner Saboteur – and
it was now time for me to do an exorcism; not of the Inner
Saboteur, though. An exorcism of wrong thinking. An unwinding
of the mind. A little de-hypnosis.
“Look,” I said. “Here’s the scientifically proven fact about
what I’m telling you. Inside your brain you have a servo-
mechanism. It is either activated toward success or it is
activated toward failure. This servo-mechanism literally
becomes, based upon the mental pictures and movies
you play in your mind, success-oriented or failure-oriented.”
“You activate this mechanism for success by using your memory,
which is located in your brain, to recall previous successes. Or you
activate it toward failure by recalling previous failures. You also activate
it toward success by thinking about a goal you want to accomplish
in the future. Or you activate it toward failure by choosing NOT to have
goals, by choosing to take whatever life sends you, or to think about
the things you don’t want with a lot of emotion.”
“So you’re saying there isn’t a saboteur in my mind?” someone else
“Correct. Not only that, there’s no entity whatsoever in your mind that
is trying to make you fail. You have a memory and you have an
imagination. Those are the tools you use to create the life you want.
When you feel like you’ve got some little demon inside of you
trying to ruin your life, understand you have just recalled a negative
memory from your past – or you are imagining something negative
in the future. And if you remember and imagine with a lot of emotion,
you set the wheels in motion to create more of what you supposedly
What I have just described about this conversation is simple, clear cut
and easy to understand and deal with. But the concept of an Inner
Saboteur? Well, first of all you have to go on a search to find him.
But where is he? He’s somewhere in your subconscious mind, you’re
told. So you clean and search and “work” on yourself, trying to either
roust this saboteur out of your mind – or to weaken him.
Meanwhile, “WHO and WHAT are you giving all your attention to?
The very thing you say you don’t want.
So drop the picture of an inner saboteur into the dust bin of antiquated
thinking. Put the notion through a paper shredder. Unwind your mind to
the day you learned something so riduclous, and delete it from your
Focus instead on PUSHING the success button in your brain. Focus on activating
this button in your brain for the positive.

back. You will have taken charge of your mind and made yourself the rightful
