What is a Saboteur and Why Should You Care?
Higher Perspective About the Saboteurs
Saboteur #1: The Judge
Judge Against US
Others have a Judge against themselves who is more subtle. It won’t bash them with blatant, mean words. It will whisper lies to them that they shouldn’t take a risk because they don’t need the hassle and they couldn’t handle it anyway.
Judge Against Others
Others have a Judge who doesn’t want to look at what’s really going on with themselves. They minimize their part in things. It will have them avoid taking responsibility because it’s too painful to look at. This Judge will focus on blaming and judging others more so than self.
