Think about it, everything in your experience has some meaning to you. Some things are great, others not so good, and then there are some things that you just consider to be awful. One of the most common things that I hear clients say is “I can’t move forward because (insert name of boyfriend, spouse, parent, child, etc.) is holding me back! They are so negative and they never encourage me!” Unfortunately, we all have those types of people come in and out of our lives. They are here for a purpose…to show you that you are in control. You decide who/what will impact your choices, your decisions, and how you think about yourself. The only reason that all these external people and factors have so much influence over your life experience is because you are letting them!!! You are giving them SOOOO much meaning in your life…that you yourself actually believe that others are in control of you. You have created this situation. How refreshing is that?! If you created it, then you can change it!
Stop giving meaning to all your unsupportive and negative beliefs. If you recognize an unsupportive belief surfacing inside you then stop for a moment. Acknowledge the belief and view it from a third party perspective. Take away all meaning from that belief. Now that’s liberating! Do this for one day. You will notice that it IS uncomfortable, but soon you will feel more at rest as you continue this process. It is a choice. You can choose to give up because it is uncomfortable, or you can choose to work on changing you habits now so that you can awaken at every level and lead a more fulfilling life. The choice is yours
