Sabotage: an undermining of a cause;
                to injure or attack

Undermining: to injure or destroy by insidious activity
                     to attack by indirect, secret or underhand means
                     to weaken or cause to collapse by removing underlying support.

We can always find a way to blame situations or others for where we are in life but the truth that I have found is I allow situations and people to keep me from moving forward.  Even when things are not going well I have a choice.  The attitude I take on is my choice.  My attitude is formulated by my thoughts.  My thoughts are what move me in life.  If my thoughts are always negative I draw negativity toward me because I behave negatively. This can come in the form of low self-esteem, pride, fear, anger and the like. This is sabotage. When my soul ( my imagination, my will and my emotions) is health, my attitude reflects it.  That is why it is important that I learn to meditate.

Joshua 1:8 NJKV
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

I sabotage (undermine, injure, attack) myself when I make the choice to meditate on negative things.  When I focus on the past, or imagine (what if) bad things for the future. When I refuse to see myself as God sees me or love others as Word says I should.

Antonyms for sabotage are help and fix. 
Help: to give or provide what is necessary to accomplish a task or satisfy a need; contribute strength or                  means; to render assistance; to cooperate effectively with; aid assist

Fix: to repair: mend; to put in order or in good condition; adjust or arrange; to make fast, firm,or stable

So how can I help or fix my life? I have to think about what I am thinking about at all times as Joyce Meyers states in her book the Battlefield of the Mind.

Philipians4:8 KJV
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Philippians 4:8 MSG
Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
