Today’s post is a reminder about beliefs and the ‘stories’ that little voice inside your head tells you.
Do you know … it has been proven that your beliefs are in every one of your 50 trillion living cells in your body? They are YOU and drive your thoughts, your emotions, your actions, your in-actions, your decisions, your behaviour , your outcomes … your everything … your tomorrow.
It all starts with a thought that we say over and over which leads to a belief and the belief becomes part of YOU.
The bottom line is … if you believe it is true then it IS true.
So, today I want you to check in with your inner voice. What are you believing right now? Are your beliefs in line with what you need, want and desire and the promises you are keeping to you this year?
If your beliefs are working for you – ROCK ON! That is awesome – keep believing them.
However, if you’re not getting the outcomes you want in a certain area of your life, it means that your beliefs are NOT working for you and you need to change them if you want a different outcome.
Are your existing beliefs empowering you or limiting you?
Do they help or hinder you?
Do they make you more or less likely to succeed?
Do they lean more towards the positive or the negative end of the scale?
Beliefs that are not working for you produce crappy self-talk, bad decisions, actions, reactions, expectations and outcomes. Some of these beliefs might include things like:
“Exercise is painful and boring.”
“I can’t live without chocolate.”
“I’m not a gym person.”
“I look at food and I get fat.”
“I could never do….”
“For me, it’s a time issue.”
“This is soooooo hard.”
In the ART Your Life 7 Week Intensive we take a deep dive into those common beliefs that can lead to self-sabotage. We stretch ourselves to create new beliefs and share them in our private Facebook group.
Some examples of the new beliefs that resonate for many are …
“I now believe I am free to be me”
“I believe my body is gorgeous.”
“I believe I love food.”
“I now believe my opinions, feelings and thoughts are worth being heard and I voice them with confidence, clarity and grace”
“I now believe what I think other people think about me is irrelevant”
“I now believe I am enough”
“I now believe saying no and having boundaries is a sign of my love and respect for myself”
“I now believe I am smart, capable, skilled and talented and I give myself permission to stand out and to shine”
“I now believe I respect, love and trust me right now”
What you believe to be true about you really matters. Replace negative and limiting beliefs with new ones that serve, support and encourage you to shine. Write your new beliefs down and laminate them and stick them on the wall in the shower.
Read them aloud EVERY TIME you have a shower, they will become a part of you and grow bigger than the ones holding you back. Imagine the difference these new beliefs will make to how you think, what you feel and what you do.
