The way you speak about yourself can be a powerful first step towards a better life & version of yourself!
Many of the people I work with express to me things like:
“That’s just how I’ve always been”
“I am a __ so I could never __”
“Everyone in my family is like this, we are just made this way”
“I’m always going to be __”
But this language sends messages to our mind, reaffirming that we are comfortable & fine with where we are (even if we say and acknowledge we want to change our reality)
Your identity is so powerful and will literally dictate the majority of your emotions and be the root of the majority of your pains
When we constantly affirm to ourselves that we do not have the choice, and therefore the freedom, to change then we are constantly affirming that we don’t need to try because we conclude that it’s just not possible to change
And even if others have changed, it’s not possible for you because that’s just how you’ve “always been” right?
Interesting how we create belief patterns that support us in staying comfortable so we don’t challenge our homeostasis with things like personal development or mindset work
“ahhh no I’m afraid of the dark”-our minds when we try to confront our own limitations & demons
So when we use language that affirms that we are making choices for everything we are & all that we do, we are essentially retraining our mind to be comfortable with the concept of change because we have given ourselves the freedom to pursue it
So, do you have something you ALWAYS identify with that could be holding you back?
Not sure? Pay attention to your common descriptions of yourself this week in casual conversation, they’ll reveal themselves 😉
