“You don’t become what you want, you become what you believe.”
– Oprah Winfrey –
Your subconscious mind accepts as truth, the statements you tell yourself, it doesn’t care whether those statements are negative or positive.
So why would you choose to continually tell yourself that you are not good enough? Not smart enough? Not pretty enough? Or that you don’t deserve to be happy? How often do you hear any of these statements in your head? More than once is too often and it’s time to change this. Statements like: “I’m so stupid, I’m not worthy, nobody loves me, I can’t do this” are some of the more damaging ones and there are more! Anyone of these statements can stop you from having what you want in your life and the good news is you don’t have to listen to them anymore! First of all, none of the statements above are true.
I can hear some of you saying “they are for me” and to that, I say again, NONE OF THESE STATEMENTS ARE TRUE for anyone.
These words are a perspective, yours or someone else’s, that repeat themselves over and over in your subconscious mind, making you feel like these words are the truth. These negative statements are bogus and they were added to your life-living program that resides in your subconscious mind. At some point in your life or before (another conversation), these programmed statements, and many others, were saved in your subconscious mind’s file system causing you to operate in life as if they are true. In other words, these are limiting belief statements embedded in your subconscious mind and they are limiting your life potential. Here’s the thing, you don’t have to live with these words anymore and you can reform these statements from negative into positive ones and change the outcome of your life. Not only have other people done this successfully for themselves, but more people, like you, are also discovering that they can too.
Consider the alternative statements “I am good at what I do”, “I have all the knowledge I need” “I am beautiful, inside and out”, “I am worthy of the best that love and life have to offer” These statements are true for people who believe these words, whole-heartedly. They are the people who appear to be insanely happy all the time! You know ‘those’ people, the ones who appear to be over the top happy, living life to it’s fullest, always wearing a perma-grin on their lips. I used to think “they can’t be that happy all the time”! Well, a matter a fact, yes they can and you can be as well, if that’s your goal! The fact is our natural way of being, as a human, is to be happy, content, joyful, grateful, compassionate, caring, social, nurturing, happy, happy, happy! It’s time to be the human being you were born to be!
So, why are we so unhappy?
Our thoughts are the main reason and they are the result of what we believe about our thoughts. What we believe about ourselves, our life, and the world we live in. Every thought we have, also known as opinions and perspectives, is formed by our beliefs, both positive and negative. What we accept as the truth, either self-proclaimed or told to us by others, and how we choose to define our very existence. It may surprise you to know that we actually live in a world of anything is possible, nothing is real and all you have to do is choose how you want your human experience to be. Is that really possible? ABSOLUTELY! Is it easy? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
If you are not living the life that you want and you are ready to change this, then you are in the right place right now and it’s time to get to work! As a life-living strategist, I am here to work through this with you, to help you take back your personal power and to help you create your life, by your definition, of “happy ever after”.
Let’s try a little experiment here to find out what you actually believe. I’d like you to read the quote below.
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” ― Oprah Winfrey
What did that little voice in your head say when you read it? Did you hear “that’s not true” or “I agree with this statement”? Or did anything else pop into your thoughts about it? Write down what you heard so we can refer back to it later.
Now take a look at this image, what do you see?
Do you see the beauty of nature or an emptiness? Did it stir emotion within you of excitement? Loneliness? Calm? Peacefulness? or nothing at all? Record your thoughts and emotions as they appear to you.
Your initial thoughts and feelings are clues to what you truly believe on a subconscious level and these thoughts and feelings may or may not be in alignment with what you consciously believe. If this is the case, this is where we begin to look for the limiting beliefs that are stopping you from living your life as it was meant to be lived. The first step to removing a limiting belief is to discover it’s existence, then, to create a new (positive) statement that is meaningful for you. We download it into your sub-conscious replacing the negative one that has stopped you in the past. There are a few techniques you can use to do this successfully and effectively and choosing the modality that works for you is the key. Over the years I have tried many and I’ve found value is each of them at different times of my life.
Happiness is: living my life as it was meant to be lived and by my design!
