It's time for a new pair of glasses
I have always pride myself in being very self-aware but from my Coaching Training Program, my awareness has been taken to the next level. I’ve realized that I’ve been living life from these perspective/limiting beliefs for most of my adult life:
• Am I (Fill in the blank: good/thin/pretty/smart, etc) enough?
• Am I right? (Because I don’t want to risk being wrong!!)
• Have I done something bad/wrong?
• I need external approval/validation
• Everyone else has it together, or knows more than me
• Unworthy of love
• I’m too aggressive, “too much” to handle
• Life is hard
• No one’s going to like me for who I really am, I must hide and pretend to be someone else
• Waiting for the other shoe to drop
Just looking at the list I just generated sounds exhausting and sad, as this is NOT how I want to live my life. I realize that I now have a choice—I can continue to live life from the old perspective, or I can choose something new. I have a choice, and not choosing is a choice in itself.
Are you ready to get into action to shed old patterns and to discover what lens you’ve been viewing the world from?
