Let’s talk about the power of belief for a moment. Some of you tell me it’s so hard to change beliefs about yourself and what you can and cannot do in the absence of “facts,” and yet there are people who believed so much in something absolutely outside of their range of awareness, that they built a rocket ship and went into space. There are others who have believed so fervently in an idea, that they created new devices to aid people/the world: washing machines, computers, recycling plants, etc.
So when you say that you just can’t get past the idea that somehow you’re not worthy of creating this or that, how about if you decide to be like those inventors and explorers and put all of your energy and attention into the possibility that maybe your dreams can come true. That maybe you are smart enough and talented enough.
A belief is nothing but a statement said over and over until it becomes your truth. So who’s truth are you living right now? Are you listening to the flawed adults from when you were little, or maybe even your own wounded inner child and misguided presumptions, or are you choosing instead to listen to the empowered adult in you?
Let’s go under the assumption that you’ve been lied to by your negative ego and by those flawed authority figures from when you were a child/adolescent. Today, could you decide to start shining the light into a new truth? The truth of your worth and your value and that you actually are enough?
Can you believe in yourself as much as those early explorers believed they’d find land? As much as Edison believed he’d be able to create a lightbulb? As much as the NASA scientists figured out how to put a man on the moon?
If they could do it, surely you can take your power back from the past and focus your energy and attention into what you do want to create for yourself.
And if your mind argues that nothing has been effective yet, you remind yourself that today is a brand new day and you have the power of choice. Forgive yourself for the past and choose to believe in yourself and your dreams. You’re worth it.
Me, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
