Jean Chatzky  |  March 15, 2017

Self-sabotage can be one of the most damaging behaviors in our lives. When it comes to our money, it can be particularly destructive.

Say it with me: The thing standing in the way of me being a success with money is, yes, me. Capital M. Capital E. Self-sabotage can be one of the most damaging behaviors in our lives. It can hold us back with our relationships, our careers, and when it comes to our money, it can be particularly destructive. Fortunately, the Savvy Psychologist Dr. Ellen Hendriksen is on hand to help us get self-sabotage to stand down. She says giving up isn’t failure if it moves us forward — and sometimes knowing when to cut our losses is the best and most mature choice.
