Surprise Your Doubts With Actions ✌️
When it comes to life one things for certain, you are in charge of you.
I know that you think I have some super power that you don’t and that’s how I changed my life, but I promise you that I was exactly like you.
I didn’t know that I was keeping myself small because I was so afraid to fail. I didn’t realize that I was inadvertently sabotaging my own future because I was listening to the voices in my head.
When you live your entire life in storytelling mode, it’s hard to get out of it.
Don’t know what story telling is?
I can help with that.
Storytelling is a little thing we do all of the time. It’s goes on inside of our minds and it takes up a great deal of our lives, until we learn better ways to think and to believe.
You have exactly 5 seconds from the time you think a thought to act on it before you will talk yourself out of doing it.
Here’s a common scenario that goes through my mind that has to do with my career.
I’m sitting on the couch and I think to myself that I should make contact with some new potential customers. I’ve been slacking off a bit lately and I think it’s time to get back at it.
So at this point I’m ready to go pick up my phone and get to work. But on my way to my phone I have another thought, and this thought says you could always call people later. You can send emails tonight. You can get samples out tomorrow morning too.
And so I begin to talk myself right out of the very action that will bring about the change that I need for my life.
It’s so simple and yet so complicated at the same time.
I had an idea to be productive.
I went to act on the idea.
I started to tell myself a story.
I then narrated the story.
Tomorrow, later, another time.
And so it went I never did the work.
I just continued to live in my fantasy world where I could remain safe forever (or so I thought)!
And you my friends do this exact thing 100 times a day. Listen to yourself today!
Become aware of how often you catch yourself in storytelling mode and as soon as you realize your doing it laugh at yourself!
Seriously chuckle and say ha ha I see you!
There you go again trying to keep me small, but I’m not falling for it this time.
I’m not getting lost in my thoughts.
Instead I’m bypassing those bad boys and I’m doing the work right now.
In fact when your able to push yourself beyond the limits of your stories that aren’t even true, you will find yourself right smack dab in the middle of a new life.
A new way of doing and thinking and being.
You will learn how to create a new story and it will be one full of life instead of fears.
