Are You Sabotaging Your Life Purpose?
Do you know that your way of thinking, feeling and acting can sabotage your ability to live your life purpose?
The following is a list of possible self-sabotaging behaviours in which you may engage without even noticing. Only when you became fully aware of your mental patterns you can reprogram your subconscious mind and initiate change in your life.
Read through the list and select the statements that apply to you. Please, do not judge yourself. It’s important for you to admit to your behaviours so you can change them. Your intent in doing this quiz should be to understand your thinking and behavioural patterns, not to notice what's wrong with you.
Defining Your Life Purpose
You may not even be sure of your life purpose right now. You can only discover your life purpose by listening to your inner guiding system and doing what you love. If you are not doing what you love, you are not living your purpose.
Your life purpose is not a job title! Your life purpose is doing what gives you life and makes you happy. You find your life purpose through action, by engaging with the world around you, doing what you are passionate about. Please, notice that your life purpose may change over time and that's all right. As you grow spiritually, so does your life path.
Most people think that they have to have everything figured out before they take action. This is a misconception! You find out what you are passionate about by doing it! So, why are you not doing what you love? What's holding you back?
Listening To Your Higher Self
Your Higher Self is the part of you that is fully connected to your life source energy and knows your spiritual talents and your life path.
You receive guidance from your higher self either consciously or unconsciously. The more you are able to obtain the information consciously by developing your intuition, the more aware you are of your life and the choices that you need to take in order to manifest your life purpose.
If you receive your guidance through intuitive channels like a gut feeling, your conscious mind may dismiss that information. This is where self-sabotage comes in and prevents you from moving forward.

Calculate Your Results:
Count how many of the above statements are true for you. Please, note that everybody normally engages in a degree of self-sabotage now and then, and that’s all right. You are trying to identify the extent in which self-sabotage is affecting your ability to move forward in life and live your life purpose.
Read the following results with an open mind. These are general guidelines to help you become more aware of your mental processes.
You have a low degree of self-sabotage that initially hinders your ability to take a decision based on your true desires. You often try to adapt to situations around you rather than listening to your inner guidance. You are most likely to listen to your intuition when you feel confident and only fall victim of self-sabotage when others are pressuring you. You need more time to think on your own and go deeper inside of you to find the real answers. When you do this, you always know what the next step is.
You engage in self-sabotage most of the time and are unable to make choices based on what you actually want. You fall prey of self-criticism and worry. This is especially true when you decide to do something new. You are rarely in touch with your inner guiding system, but when you do you feel empowered and shift to a higher vibrational state. This positive feeling is not energetically supported by your thoughts long enough for you to take guided action and make a real commitment to change. That’s why you feel jaded and unable to go in the direction of your dreams and goals. You are not sure of your life purpose and may hop from project to project searching and expecting for a better tomorrow. You don't make decisions based on your future goals, but only on what feels good right now. Your future feels more like a dream than a possible reality.
Score over 30:
Your thoughts are based on fear, unwariness and self-reproach. When an opportunity for change presents to you in life, you allow negative thinking and worry overwhelm you and fog your thinking. You cannot make up your mind and are always looking for answers outside of you. You are not in touch with your inner guiding system and doubt often the intuitive information you receive.
