It seems that so many people out there are stuck in self-defeating patterns of self-loathing and fear. After doing some digging around, we find that these limiting choices and beliefs are usually rooted in early experiences with role models, parents, and influential people and situations that were part of your life. Often times, the reality is that the things that we say to ourselves are much harsher than early naysayers may have taught us. For example, your mother may have constantly cautioned you around decisions you made for your career or the type of people you chose to date. In your mind, this translates into “I’ll never succeed in my career”, “I’ll fail at everything that I want”, “My decisions are wrong”, and “No one will love me.” This disaster train of thoughts is constantly helping you internalize self-limiting beliefs that hold you back.
It is your responsibility to recognize these limiting thoughts and words that you constantly say to yourself and then choose to END THE PATTERN. Yes, that’s right. It is just that simple. When you catch yourself going down the disaster train of thoughts pattern, you must stop it. Do something different. Occupy your mind. Changing the thought probably won’t work for too long. So, go ahead and get busy. Go to the gym, read a book, watch some television, turn on your favourite up beat music, or call up a friend that is positive and uplifting.
