I've been thinking a lot lately about the things that we accidentally believe to be true about ourselves. When someone says something about us or says who they think we are, sometimes we internalize those things.
Whether these things are true or not and whether we're aware of them, these things can become background thoughts. Thoughts that prevent us from becoming who we want to be and creating the life we would love to live.
I don't want you living your life as a shadow of what it could be. I also don't want you to feel overwhelmed with homework. In this episode, I'm going to give a quick method to discover these thoughts and beliefs, and then next week, I'll dive into what to do about them.
[02:16] I have a friend who commands a room when she walks in. It wasn't always like that for her. Years ago, someone made her feel less than by making fun of her accent.
[02:32] When she realized that this passive statement had become the cornerstone of the beliefs that she had about herself, she was able to create changes in her life.
[02:42] Someone told another client of mine that they would only be moderately successful in life. Who does that? She dismissed the remark, but it embedded in her mind as the truth.
[03:05] She was limiting her goals to create only moderate success.
[03:47] What are you believing about yourself? Who planted the seeds either innocently or not so innocently?
[04:13] I want you to uncover the limiting beliefs that are holding you back from creating the life that you love.
[06:07] Get out your journal and outline the dream scenario for relationships, career, health, and finances. Begin to dream of what your dream scenario will look like.
[07:35] Describe yourself. Are you smart, talented, beautiful, etc. and why? What beliefs have you assigned to yourself? What beliefs are you holding on to?
[09:42] Do you want to continue this belief or not? Is it serving you? If it's not serving you, it's time to do something about that.
[09:55] Take the beliefs that you want to change and find examples of when they have not been true.
[10:41] Find the beliefs that are standing in the way of your dreams. Beliefs you have aren't always true. Poke holes in those beliefs, and we'll go deeper into it next week.
