Wow what a response to the last post on changing your story. And I must confess, I did what the psychologists call projection. Because for me, 95 percent of the battle is recognizing when a belief doesn’t serve me, then I change it almost instantaneously. But obviously for some people this is a much more drawn out process.
Now there were some great comments dealing how others make this work, so I won’t repeat them. I want to go in a very different direction…
One of the things I learned from Harry Brown is that if they can get you to ask the wrong question – the answer doesn’t matter. So it seems simple enough to say, “I have noticed I have a belief that doesn’t serve me, but it’s hard to change it.” Really?
How often is that really the case? Because for most people, that is the hardest part of the process, the actual awareness of this. If you doubt me, get involved with group therapy some time! You might be simply shocked at how people (including yourself) have to be dragged kicking and screaming to awareness.
The thing that makes group therapy works is that you almost always see things in others first, and only after intervention from the group do you recognize that the reason you feel so strong about it is because it’s an issue for you. Now let’s explore that other issue:
You become aware of something, and don’t change it. You realize you attract abusive partners, but still get in another abusive relationship. You know you’re an alcoholic, but still keep drinking. Or you notice that every time you start to break through, you sabotage your success, and still continue the pattern.
The real question to ask is why you would repeat negative, destructive or harmful behavior. And I believe that takes us back to the mother of all prosperity issues: WORTHINESS.
Drugs, alcohol, and smoking at their best are escapist behavior, and at their worst are death wish behaviors. And both escapist and death wish behavior comes from worthiness issues. People repeat dysfunctional relationships because at a subconscious level they don’t believe they deserve healthy ones.
If you know you’re overweight and a heart attack waiting to happen, and you still buy a gallon of chunky monkey to watch Survivor with, that’s got worthiness issues written all over it.
If you have business failure after business failure like I did, you can blame it on the economy, crooked partners, the IRS, the highway construction changing traffic patterns (like I did) or you can understand that one of two issues (or both) are at play here: You are sabotaging your own success because either you think rich people are evil and you don’t want to become one, or you think you’re not worthy of being rich.
After almost 20 years of teaching prosperity, I can tell you this worthiness issue is the culprit more than anything else. Doesn’t matter is the symptoms are illness, poverty, dysfunctional relationships, unhappiness or other manifestations of lack. It almost always goes back to the worthiness issue. (Which come about because of the core foundation beliefs that I mentioned yesterday.)
You know by now, I believe you are worthy. You are supposed to be healthy, happy and rich. Really. And if you’re not, you really can change the story. If you haven’t registered for my new virtual prosperity seminar series, please do it NOW. The first one is Thursday at 11 am. (And don’t worry if you’re working or can’t make it at that time live. That's just more sabotage issues for you. It will be archived and you can watch it or re watch it any time.) The first session is Slum Dog or Millionaire: How You Manifest Prosperity over Lack. And we’ll be exploring exactly these issues in depth…
You’ll discover the outside factors that can cause you to lower your perceived self-worth. More importantly you’ll learn how YOU lower your perceived self-worth. And I’ll give you a checklist of things to restore your confidence and belief and six action steps to take. This is really the most advanced work I’ve ever done on the issue, and I’m really excited about what it can mean for you.
Please. Let go of lack and limitation. Step out and do something great. Something bold, daring and adventurous. Be the you - you are meant to become. Sign up here: https://www.randygage.com/prosperity/
And get ready for Thursday, because it’s going to rock! I promise you.
