Day 5: Break out of your Identity Box
"If you truly want to change your life, you must first be willing to change your mind." - Donald Altman
Welcome to Day 5!
Today I want to address a topic that I believe is holding so many of us back - in all areas of our lives.
The limiting beliefs we have about ourselves.
A limiting belief is doubting that something is possible. It’s your brain literally saying, “I can’t do this.” “I don’t know how to do that.” or “I’m not good enough to deserve that.”
I believe your thoughts can 100% propel you to someone who THRIVES in sobriety. Someone who truly enjoys the experience of being alcohol free. Why?
Your THOUGHTS affect your EMOTIONS which then affect your ACTIONS.
Your ACTIONS generate RESULTS, which ultimately deliver OUTCOMES (either positive or negative) in your life.
My identity box for years was tied into:
I’m never going to change.
I’m not smart enough.
I don’t say the right things in meetings.
Everyone thinks I’m stupid.
I need a business partner to be successful because I can’t do it on my own.
This held me back from opportunities, because I lived in fear and insecurity and felt dependent on my business partner for the success of our PR agency. I didn’t think I had any other talents and I definitely didn’t think I could make anything happen career-wise without my partner.
But that’s not the truth. It never was.
And your self-limiting beliefs aren’t true either. Your thoughts aren’t facts BUT your mind will work to prove you right.
