Have you heard the saying “What you believe about yourself is what you become?”I suppose than the question to ask ourselves is what do we truly believe about ourselves??
I would like to say that I fully believe that I am smart; gorgeous; confident and totally awesome but that is not what the little voice inside my head says. Now we all believe that we have some positives but I have a sneaky suspicion that many of us probably have a bigger list of negatives.
SO what can we do……………Now is time to get really honest here and make a list of the positive and negative beliefs about yourself………..this is not a list of
what you want to be or what you think you should be, this is a list of what you truly believe about yourself, warts and all. Now these things may not be true
but as long as you believe them you will become them….You may think….I
am a bit lazy…….I am messy…….I am unfit…..I am not smart enough…..etc I am sure your list will be long and you have probably held onto it for many years. Take a couple of days to do this list, no need to rush it. The trick, I suppose is to recognise our negative self talk and to slowly but surely change them to real truths and watch your new beliefs become you and your reality. Remember that they thought the earth was flat…..let the facts speak for themselves.
If a friend came to you and told you a list of their self doubts you would set them straight and point out their good points……be a friend to yourself
and point out those positives. Make a choice to believe in yourself.
