I’m not worth it…
Is that what are YOU are saying to yourself?I know that I have said it to myself, held back from success or moving on.
Why are YOU not taking better care of ourselves? Why is it when YOU reach a level of success you hit a wall and stop? Why do YOU not just keep going, get to the wall and climb over? What is it that makes you think this is it? This is the best I can have?
Tiredness and stress have a big effect on decision making. How many times do YOU make crap food choices because you can’t be bothered or you are having a shit day?
The excuse – Self-sabotage.There you go, there is a label for it so it must be ok…
I came across an interview with Bob Doyle (from the film The Secret) and The Wolff Sisters (I have had the privilege of meeting Christianne – she is just lovely. We had some special Bradley Cooper time and went to see Hangover 3, but that’s a story for another day)
Bob made an interesting point that if you BELIEVE that you self-sabotage then you will. You are putting that thought and belief in your head so therefor it will be (kind of like the law of attraction the wrong way round). He suggests that you RECOGNISE the signs then CHANGE the pattern, BREAK THE HABIT. When you find the wall climb it not hit it.
To help YOU break the pattern, you need to answer some questions (and answer them honestly, you are the only one that knows this shit):
What is the resistance?
What is it about the action that you don’t want to do?
Where is it coming from?
Why do you think this small pain can’t take you to better happiness?
If you have success what does that mean to you?
When you have a better understanding of what it is that holds you back he gives 3 simple questions; COULD I let this feeling go? WOULD I let this go? WHEN? This is called the Sedona Method.
Some of this is a bit woowoo but there is also a lot of sense in believing in YOU. Go back and look at your VALUES list. Apply them.
Live in the moment – not in the past because it’s gone or in the future, it’s still to happen.
Set yourself free, climb the wall.
