(NaturalNews) If there is anything in life that you can count on, it's people doing harm to themselves. In fact, it seems the world economy might just collapse if it weren't for consumers acting outside of their own best interests.

Businesses around the globe invest in your potential for self-sabotage routinely and to the tune of trillions of dollars. Why? There is only one reason: It's a secure investment.

If it weren't such a safe bet, the world's business landscape would look very different indeed.

Here are some examples of how businesses bank on self-sabotage:

1. Fitness centers oversell memberships because they know most of their clients will stop coming to the gym very soon. In fact, one gym manager once told me, "If all of our members showed up consistently, we'd have to close our doors because we could never accommodate everyone. We actually count on people not showing up."

You buy a gym membership and your fitness center will encourage you to get in shape, but still counts on your potential to sabotage your goals by staying home.

Annual revenue generated by fitness centers in 2012: 21.8 Billion (IHRSA)

2. Donut shops, ice cream parlors, liquor stores, tobacco shops and fast food restaurants, on the other hand, invest in your potential to ruin your health by frequenting their establishments regularly. If you didn't sabotage your health at all, their business might decline 90%.

Sugar industry annual revenue: 20 Billion (SugarAlliance)

3. Car dealerships. How many of them count on you making a bad decision? Do they really care that you get the car you want, need and can comfortably afford? Do they give you the space to make a solid decision based on your best judgment? Or are they invested in making a sale regardless of your real needs?

Many of their sales tactics suggest that they don't have your highest interests in mind and would prefer to make the sale - right now - regardless of what's best for you. How many sales would they lose otherwise?

4. Giant food corporations COUNT on you not caring what goes into your body. Deadly chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, GMO's, sugar, trans fats and empty calories save them the work and expense of creating truly healthy, organic food - and they bank on you eating their junk anyway, to your own detriment.

Annual U.S. pesticide sales: 12.5 Billion, with 1.1 Billion pounds used (EPA)

5. Credit card companies love it when you are in debt. They count on you failing to pay for what you buy up front so that you can pay them many times the value over time. They seduce you with lies - visions of how powerful and successful you will be once you are carrying their card, overspending and forking over the interest.

Nothing better for a bank than for you to never stop owing them and never get ahead.

6. Attorneys. There are many legitimate and helpful attorneys out there. And there are those who make their living by convincing you of your victimhood. They see you coming, hoping to stir you up in anger and blame - promising to get you justice when the only thing they are interested in is their own billing.

Some lawyers want to you feel like a helpless victim that the world owes. They prey upon this, build it up within you and fill their pockets with your powerlessness and inability to accept life on its own terms and take responsibility for yourself.

I could go on. Suffice it to say that the world economy as it currently exists depends on you making bad decisions with your money, health and happiness. They are wholly committed to YOU desiring what you don't need. And not only what you don't need...they want you to want what will harm you.

And most people strangely desire just that, as if fulfilling some deeply unconscious destiny.

Without you harming yourself, the world economy as we know it wouldn't exist! Trillions of dollars in revenue would simply disappear. And we've barely scratched the surface with these examples.

How much money have you spent on self-sabotage?

Can you estimate your contribution to the economy of self-sabotage? How much have you spent on unnecessary consumer items, junk food, credit cards, car loans, weight loss programs you didn't use, and all manner of ill-fated decisions?

What if you had EVERY dime of that money right now, safely tucked away in a good investment? How different would your life be? Would it be worth having? Now, multiply your savings by every income-earner on earth and you can get an idea of the price we are paying for self-sabotage.

And that's just the financial aspect, which is the least important. The emotional benefits of abstaining from self-sabotage dwarf the financial.

The biggest problem in overcoming self-sabotage

The most difficult aspect of self-sabotage involves seeing it for what it is. Most often, we disguise it from ourselves and are lucky if we notice it in hindsight. The key is to see it coming and practice prevention, as with most health issues.

Don't be a safe investment for someone who counts on you harming yourself.
