When you think about the woman you want to become does it scare you a bit? Like your dreams are a bit too big to achieve? I, too, felt like this before I got over my BS!
When I was younger I had BIG dreams, dreams of travel, adventure, success. I held myself back from going after these dreams for a long time because I didn’t feel like I deserved them or would ever accomplish them and that is RIDICULOUS! You should never shy away from your dreams because you don’t feel good enough!
Let’s get very clear on why you may be having these thoughts and what you can do about it!
– FEAR– FEAR simply means FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL. You are SCARED you will fail, you constantly fill your head with WHAT IFS? You think you’re not SMART enough, you think other people are already doing it and WHY would anybody listen to you, you wonder what other people will think, etc, etc.. We could come up with 100 things if we wanted. Let’s instead focus on WHY it will work out, there’s only one YOU and even though there are a million people in the world all doing the same things, only you bring a unique quality and spin to your brand because you are you. So, let your SOUL shine through!
Here’s an exercise that can help you take a look at some of your fears, write out your fears on one side of the paper and for each fear write out a positive outcome that could happen instead.
– Self- Limiting Beliefs– We often put caps on our dreams and most of the time it’s out of fear, fear of failure and fear of success. So because we are fearful we BELIEVE things that aren’t true. “I can’t start a business, there are so many other people doing the same thing I’m bound to fail,” “I could never be that fit,” “I could never inspire anyone else” and we keep telling ourselves these things to stay comfortable and not have to experience the uncomfortability of being in a new situation and putting yourself out there.
Exercise time! Write down some of your self-limiting beliefs and what they are holding you back from accomplishing then write down and affirmation you could tell yourself instead.
Ex. I could never life the life I want. Affirmation: I am in control of my destiny and can live any life I choose!
– Negative Self-talk– After the fear and self-limiting beliefs cripple us we then start telling ourselves all the reason things won’t work for us. “That’s not for me,” “I would never succeed so I won’t even try.” It’s all such CRAP! Get out of your own head and start believing YOU are beautiful, awesome, smart, and can achieve ANYTHING you put your mind to! I believe in you and want to see you live a life you are wildly obsessed about!
