In my last Mindset Monday Post I wrote about having an open vs a fixed mindset.
I’m still on my personal mindset journey.
And, I’m learning that keeping myself in an open mindset is really the first step for me on this journey and I’ve incorporated those questions I shared with you into my daily routine quite nicely. Now mind you I’m not perfect and I’m okay with the fact that this is journey and I am learning something new.
In fact I am finding this to be quite exciting!
This week I devoured a book written by the insightful Steve Chandler ” 17 Lies That Are Holding You Back & The Truth That Will Set You Free. It’s a wonderful book that you can find right here on Amazon. It was written in 2001 and I found this book to be timeless and one that I’ll read over again and again.
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to take you through my personal journey as I share with you the lies that I am telling myself that are preventing me from being all that I can be.
I hope you find my journey to be of help to you on your journey of becoming the person you are meant to be.
Lie #1: There’s something wrong with me.
It’s time to turn this into There’s NOTHING wrong with me!
This self talk is what I say to myself when I am uncomfortable as a excuse to stay out of action when I really should be moving forward.
It’s the same as me telling myself that I am not good enough.
Or I can’t do that…
It’s really just a silly excuse for me to not play big in my professional or my personal life. My coach says one of the things I need to do is to think big. And she gave me some real life examples of other people who are just like me who started to think big and got some amazing results.
So I ask you, where are you not thinking big in your business?
What lies are you telling yourself?
Did you ever stop to think that this is the voice of feat talking to you?
It’s called quitting before you ever begin. And I to am guilty of this especially when it is something that I am uncomfortable or afraid of doing.
The way out of this is to get into action. One step at a time and being okay with failure. Instead of telling yourself you are a failure you say I failed at that and pick yourself up and embrace it as a challenge.
Persist even when there is a setback
Know that you need to keep working at it until you master what ever it is that you set out to do.
It’s a lie that there is something wrong with me. Instead, I’m choosing to turn it into there is nothing wrong with me. The truth is that that there may be something wrong and that something wrong is over there but it isn’t me personally.
It’s time to stop telling yourself there’s something wrong with me and making it all so personal!
