Believe it or Not!
We are now into Week 10 of our Accountability Challenge. Take a moment now to mentally assess the progress that you have made so far toward your Definite Purpose.
Are you completely on track?
If so congratulations! My simple advice is to keep on doing what you’ve been doing.
Perhaps on the other hand you find that you are not on track or that you are not completely satisfied with your progress thus far.
In that case there is a very good chance that it is your own limiting beliefs (or what I like to refer to as your Inner Enemy) that is standing in your way.
Henry Ford is credited with saying ‘Whether you think you can or whether you think you cannot, you are right”.
Accountability Challenge Week 10: Part 1. List all of your limiting Beliefs:
Take ten minutes today (right now if you can) and list all of the beliefs that you currently hold about yourself that are creating Resistance-in other words are holding you back.
E.g.: My Limiting Beliefs about myself are:
- I am too old.
- I am too young.
- I will always be overweight. I am fat
- ‘It” is too hard.
- I am not smart enough, strong enough, good looking enough…good enough.
- There is not enough time.
- I am too busy.
- I don’t deserve success…
- Etc etc etc..
Add to your own list –write down whatever comes to mind. This is a very important exercise.
Now I have some very good news to share with you. Everything that you wrote down under your limiting beliefs are LIES, yes they are big fat lies. They are not true. This is just your “ego” talking to you. Remember that its mission in life is to keep you safe. It has one job and that is to stop you from doing the work that your goal is asking you to do to achieve it.
Accountability Challenge Week 10: Part 2. List all of your Empowering Beliefs:
Take another ten minutes and make a list all the empowering beliefs that you can think of:
E.g. My True Beliefs are:
I am the right age now to do whatever I set my mind to do.
- I am in great shape right now, and I’m getting better every day.
- I eat healthy, nutritious foods, and I enjoy exercising every day.
- I can do this and I know I can.
- I am worthy, and I deserve success right now.
- I believe in myself.
- I have all the time I need to get what needs to be done right now.
- I like myself.
- I am fit, I am strong, I am unstoppable.
Add to your list-write down whatever comes to mind, if you are having a hard time thinking of new, empowering beliefs, and then go listen to the Affirmation CD that I sent you. It’s full of great ones.
Now take the first list that you wrote down-print it out if you have to and immediately go and tear it up, piece by piece and throw it away into the trash can.
When you do take a moment and repeat to yourself the following
“These beliefs, thoughts, and words are all lies. I refuse to live by lies any more. I only live by truth, and the truth is I already have everything I need within me right not to achieve any goal that I set. I can do this and I know I can. I CAN do this and I know I can.
Please do not underestimate the importance of doing these exercises. Reading through them and intending to do them later, is not enough. Change only occurs when we consciously apply what we learn in the present moment.
Thought for the week-Your life will not change because you KNOW what to do. It will change when you do what you know.
