How You See Yourself

By Randy Gage in Critical Thinking, Success, Prosperity.

We’ve been talking the last couple posts about your core beliefs.  Particularly the ones about yourself.  I told you in the last post that you don’t get the prosperity you deserve – you get the prosperity you think you deserve.

So that all goes to how you see yourself…

When you see yourself in a dream or a visualization – are you in shape or overweight?

When you see a luxury yacht or a Rolls Royce – do you automatically think things like that are for other people?

When something bad happens, do you say something like, “I just knew that was going to happen!”

Conversely, when something amazing happens to you, is your first reaction something like, “I can’t believe it!”

If you’re single, do you automatically disqualify yourself when you meet someone very attractive or successful because you think they’re out of your league?

Answer these questions honestly and they provide powerful insights into how you see yourself – and how much success and prosperity you’re currently able to let yourself have.

Thoughts?

Not anymore! I got it, Randy. I see myself healthy, in shape and living in luxury,a nd I am not ashamed to say it. In the spiritual world so many light workers are still trapped in the spirituality/poverty mindset. I say: There is more than enough to go around. I am working hard to help others and deserve to be manifest the money that will create amazing experiencing do things that bring me great joy. In this world...we need money to do this. Bring it on. A day at the Spa, traveling, new clothes....and more!  Thanks so much for your teachings! You are appreciated!

After believing in self, and clearing all negative thoughts. Next question is what must I do to get there?

took me a few days...  :)

thinking is an inadequate tool for measuring one's depth, or depth of others...

appearance is not a problem...  :)

Maybe simply believing in yourself?

Regardless of conditions or situations.

Very thought provoking and I particularly like the comment. Exactly what I've been thinking about lately. How to transform all those subtle thoughts throughout the day that start to eat away at my positivity and dream manifesting. I'm noticing and striving to be vigilant to remove, no replace, those misaligned notions when ever they creep up. It's amazing what can be done by challenging the status quo, to pull out what is no longer serving my highest goal. Thanks for all the great advice, tips and awareness! Will be quoting all of my mentors, influencers and sources for my first book.

What a great question!  What a great dilemma!  If I think of myself as a looser, incapable, unable - how many chances at getting better will I miss?  Some of them?  All of them?  

 

If I think of myself as a winner, go-getter, can-do-it-all - what happens if I fail or about to fail? How far will I go to succeed? Or do I intend to win forever?

 

Then the real question becomes - "How do I measure success?"  :   By what I do?  How I do it?  What I get from it?  How much?  Is it the way or the end result?

 

Am I gonna have a restless night tonight!  hahahaha!

I see myself taking my company to a billion dollar company.  I see myself impacting the world for good in many ways and fighting injustice.

This reminds me of the following quote.

 

"The way you see a person is the way you treat that person." — Unknown Author

 

Even if that person is YOU.

 

Therefore, how you see yourself is how you'll treat yourself. If you see yourself as a winner then you'll treat yourself as a WINNER.

 

Conversely, if you see yourself as a loser then you'll treat yourself as a LOSER.

 

When you see everyone that you meet as a winner then you can't help to become a winner yourself.

I do like your Blog,Randy! It keeps me awake/alert. Yes, we are what we think and dream. Before anything happens in our lives,it happens in our minds. 90% of people don't dare to dream,think and act BIG.For many reasons: everybody has a story. We have blueprints. Common instincts: we live in a crowd-society.For "safety" reasons we're told: be like others,it's "certain" (1 of 6 basic human needs).There are "common" paths to follow-stages to live: school,college...work,family,kids etc.If you want to be different-o, here we have for you  fears,limiting beliefs,negative experiences of the past, energy vampires etc. Br-r! Scary! Don't you dare! And we don't. We're trapped, poisoned for most of our lives by all this nothingness. Our minds are full of mental/psychic viruses that destroy our clever,powerful,beautiful programs. Until recently I was one of those hostages. Not anymore: I dream big, happy, free, sure that success is on the way. And if failure occurs-not a problem,I am not afraid,I'll learn from it and go ahead even faster. And help many to dare to dream,think, and act BIG. We are what we dream, think. And world needs more happy people like me and you.

Great questions as usual Randy, very thought provoking and will make people feel quite uncomfortable I imagine. That is a growth moment!

I am currently monitoring almost every mi thought or sentence. What does it mean? Why do I think so? Is it for my good or not?

I'm a Real Estate Broker in Miami and after coming back from showing a beautiful condo to a client recently, she told me she would like to go ahead and place an offer. The place was beautiful and was exactly what she had described to me she was looking for. As I started to prepare the paperwork, she tells me "I probably won't get it, but I'd like you to prepare the contract anyway." I stopped right there, looked her in the eyes and asked her why she would say such a thing. I then told her if she had a chance of getting this condo, she needed to believe she would get it and we spoke what she should be focusing on. I thought I got through to her until receiving her text the next morning. It was telling me she wanted to withdraw her offer as she had spoke to her mother who told her the seller would never accept her offer and she was setting herself up for disappointment. I could get frustrated as I have 10 years of experience, started my company when the market was crashing and have great online reviews. Her mother is a naysayer who doesn't even have a real estate license and she accepted what she told her without any questions. People need to open their eyes to who they take advice from. I could be upset about losing the deal but instead I just feel sorry for this lady.

As James Allen says, "We do not attract that which we want, but that which we are'.  I dropped my car off at the body shop this week and they were to supply a loaner or rental. As most would expect, I figured it would be a typical cheap rental. When they handed me the key to a Mercedes I said to myself, "You attracted what you deserve".. And so it is :) I was reviewing Allen's book just this morning so the thoughts are fresh in my head.

So - my weight fluctuates- I never get FAT, but get a belly... I have clothes between 2 sizes so it normally is fine...  My vision was to be with a guy with a 6 pack - even tho I didn't have one.  My kids father has one!!! So in terms of being in a relationship - I don't have the "he's too good looking for me!"I'm not a jealous person - so I don't look at cars/boats/houses and think: rich person... I fI like what they have I'll think "Hmm - I like it!"  And I'll compliment the person on it...  Whenever I dream of myself in the future - I am fit, healthy, gorgeous sexy...  But it's not images I conjure up - they just pop into my head at random times....  Tho the opposite also happens - I see me as this HUGE obese person...  I also say when I see her "I wonder what Oscar I'd get for acting as someone like that?!"  I don't ever think I'd get like that - I like health too much...I also (surprisingly!!!!) always see my house as minimalist in all my visions... Yet I have so much clutter!  ALWAYS I see white walls... and nothing around except a few art pieces...  I LOVE the clarity of that, tho haven't found how to live it...When I see myself in the future - it's laughing, loved, deeply close to my kids, fabulous relationship that has such integrity and goodness...And going on lovely holidays...And TV shows, and orphanges... The dark night of the soul has ended...  and I am free... When bad things happen I burn and flinch and chant: "only good things can come from this!" or "what can I learn!" or "what do I/they need to repair?" When good things happen - I jump up and down and celebrate going "I told you - my life is changing... I'm nearly 40, and I will have worked through everything, and have healed the triggers..." AND - I won't start dating until I am financially free, house is as I want it, book written, and free from trauma...  FOr me - it's not the vision that's bleak...  it's unhooking from the damage of so much stuff I'd repressed that has sabotages me because of not healing it... So I'm onto that... :)

There´s an struggle within about self esteem.  Are you a winner, a fighter or a loser?
