What is Self Sabotaging Behavior?
- Behaviour is said to be self–sabotaging when it creates problems and interferes with long-standing goals.
- The most common self–sabotaging behaviours are procrastination, self-medication with drugs or alcohol, comfort eating, and forms of self-injury such as cutting.
What is self-destructive behaviour?
- Self–destructive behaviour is any behaviour that is harmful or potentially harmful towards the person who engages in the behaviour.
- Self–destructive behaviours exist on a continuum, with suicide at one extreme end of the scale. Self–destructive actions may be deliberate, born of impulse, or developed as a habit.
- Self–saboteurs drive people away. Often rooted in underlying feelings of inadequacy and fear of failure, self–saboteurs push others away.
- Most often, they do this by being overly critical and negative of those around them.
- Self-saboteurs are masters at procrastination.
- Any behaviour you engage in that is self-sabotaging, that takes you away from what you want, or that distracts you from your goals is behaviour that is self–defeating.
- These behaviours zap your vitality, leaving you exhausted and without access to the powerful energy, you need to create your best life.
- Drinking alcohol.
- Cutting yourself.
- Verbally lashing out at someone.
- Avoiding other people or isolating yourself.
- Using drugs.
- Engaging in disordered eating (for example, fasting or purging)

Current Tactics in the War
The main policy tactics in the war on cash are currently four:
1. Abolish high-denomination banknotes.
2. Place a maximum legal value on cash payments.
3. Require declarations from any party carrying a cash amount above a specified value across the national border.
4. Require banks to report to authorities any cash deposits or withdrawals in amounts above (or suspiciously near) a specified value.
“Instead of cataloguing your flaws, shortcomings, and everything you lack, inspire inner growth by focusing on your gifts, strengths, and yearnings, and devote yourself to making them flourish. The self-needs a committed gardener.”
— Peg Streep
