What do you believe?
On Sunday I talked about the fact that you cannot change thoughts and habits successfully until you examine the ‘beliefs’ that are under everything running your life. I equated it to having something rotting in the refrigerator that you can’t see and how until you clean it out it will contaminate all the fresh food that you put in there.
The same is true about the conversations/beliefs underneath everything that are running your life and you are not even aware of them. Things such as:
“I’m not good enough”
“there is never enough money”
“I can’t do it”
“I will never get ahead”
“I’m not worthy”
“what if I fail”
The beliefs that are the underlying scripts of our lives come from childhood—we either heard them or learned them or saw them being emulated and then we decided that is how things were and so we unconsciously adopted them. Then our lives took shape and we didn’t even notice that we were living out the things we adopted as beliefs when we were little.
To change thoughts, behaviors and actions without digging down and discovering these beliefs really is like putting fresh food into a rotting fridge—everything will become contaminated and nothing new will happen. The OLD, OUTDATED, GRUBBY scripts will literally kill off the NEW good that you are working so hard to create.
So, when I talk to you about changing the game and changing your life, I have to first make you aware that there are scripts underneath everything that you have to find. Whatever they are they are OLD NEWS and they are not the truth about you, in fact they NEVER were the truth about you…
When I was live last Sunday with you I talked about how my poor, pathetic scores on the effectiveness game had led me to start thinking that I must have some unrecognized, self-sabotaging belief that is still running me—I am still looking for it –hopefully by this Sunday I will have something to share about what I have discovered. Meanwhile I want you to start thinking about what those beliefs are for you—the conversations that are running you, hidden under everything. We have to find those so that we can clean them out…
Go back and watch last Sunday’s live for more conversation on this…and catch me this Sunday at 10 est on our FB Live Coffee Chat show.
Remember that anything can be shifted, first it has to be seen…once we know what we are dealing with we can annihilate it and move forward.
