It comes down to one simple word. Change.
I am setting some of the biggest goals I have ever had for myself.
But here’s what I am NOT doing >>> the same things I did last month, the month before that and the month before that.
If I am going to achieve and receive something I have never had before, I know I am going to have to do things and take actions in ways I haven’t done before. And that means CHANGE!
For most people, change evokes fear. The invasive question “what if” kicks into high gear and before you know it, you have talked yourself out of doing things differently and just staying with what works and what is known.
How about this time you try talking yourself INTO IT!?!?
The problem is that to your mind:
change = unknown.
And unknown = unsafe.
As soon as something is unsafe to your mind, it is programmed to shut that shit down! You will almost immediately hear back talk from your mind! So please know when this happens my love, it is not just you!
Whenever you try to step outside of your “safety zone” your mind will instantly start telling you why this is a bad idea, why it won’t work for you and how this could never be possible, so just sit here, feel bad and be quiet.
Well I am here to tell you, that does not serve you and that does not allow you to step into being the most magnificent version of you!
And that is who you are here to be.
Here’s a simple process I use to start calming my mind and easing the anxiety of change:
- Get clear on the fear. What are the actual words that are running through your mind? What are the “shut down” statements you hear yourself saying to yourself? Those are limiting beliefs. And we want to become very aware of them. Because once you become aware, you are in your power position to shift it!
- Rewrite the fear with faith. Each time one of these limiting beliefs shows it’s ugly self, take the time to write it down! On the line below it, I want you to turn that BS belief into an expansive belief! Write out a powerful statement that overrides the fear-based belief! Write it with intent and conviction that this is your new truth! And totally FEEL it and own it!
- Activating Action. Take some kind of action that is aligned with your NEW belief. No matter how small the action, when you do it from your new power position you start activating the mind to see IT IS SAFE for you to get out of your safety zone and into your success zone!
It might seem like a lot of work, monitoring your thoughts, writing them out and then taking action from that new empowered place.
But doesn’t staying stuck and not realizing your dreams feel more exhausting?
I would love to hear about your dreams and goals for this month!
