Don’t you sometimes get tired of yourself? You want things to change quicker, you want greater results in your career, love life or just a lower number on that scale. Well, girl…… I hear you! I have certainly had those thoughts that P!NK sings about in her song “Don’t let me get me”. The title refers to her not wanting to get (like it is a number you get out a lottery) herself. As if we can just be somebody else.
“I’m a hazard to myself
Don’t let me get me
I’m my own worst enemy
It’s bad when you annoy yourself
Don’t wanna be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else”
You become what you believe.
For some reason, we all sometimes just want to trade lives. The grass always seems greener on the other side. Which can lead to emotions of jealousy and envy. I’ve been there. But when I get there I always just become so aware of the fact that I am jealous that I don’t want to feed that emotion. I really believe that what you focus on expands. So the more you feed certain bad emotions, the worst they become. This consciousness or awareness of our thoughts is something we discuss in chapter 2 of my personal branding online training E-course. It’s called getting rid of your limiting beliefs. Our beliefs are such a big part of our successes. Because you become what you believe.
From weakness to strength.
Henry Ford once said: “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t….you’re right.”. So the good news is you can change your belief system. A part of my old belief system was that when something happens I have to react. I always thought not reacting was a sign of weakness. Now I see it as a sign of strength.
So sweet sister tell me, what are the things you used to believe that you don’t anymore? I am really looking forward to you sharing your thoughts with me. I promise to pay it forward and help somebody else with your story.
