In the latest episode of my podcast, we look at the issue of buying into the stories that others create for you. It could be your parents who want you to be a doctor or lawyer. Maybe your significant other who tries to talk you out of making a bold career choice. Or it could be your circle of friends who sell you the belief that everyone in the group belongs there, and neither you or anyone else is talented enough to bust out of it. That leads us to lesson number one…
Don’t allow other people to sell you their limiting beliefs.
Unfortunately, other people aren’t the only ones who try to sell you stories. Far too often, the person trying to sell you a bad story about yourself…is yourself.
Every time you affirm statements like “I can’t sing,” “I just can’t lose weight,” or “I don’t stand a chance,” not only are you selling yourself a story – but you’re actually programming it into your subconscious mind. Which leads us to lesson number two…
It’s never too late to change the story.
