Our brain is full of neural pathways made by the same thoughts we keep repeating to ourselves, over and over again.
These thoughts are the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of our reality.
These are some of the stories I tell myself.
My life is hard.
Parenting is hard.
Solo parenting is hard.
I am a bad mother.
I am old.
I am fat.
I am ugly.
I will never find love again.
The world is a tough place.
People are untrustworthy.
I’m not good enough.
I’m not good at marketing/copywriting/sales/people.
I don’t try hard enough to get well.
I don’t try hard enough to make my business a success.
I am poor.
I am broke.
Earning money is hard work.
I don’t know what I’m meant to be doing.
I don’t know how to get unstuck.
My head is a very busy place.
In the last couple of months I’ve been finding new stories to tell myself. I have affirmations posted in several places around the house.
I am a successful coach, speaker and writer.
Today I will only to that which is fun and feels good.
Right now, I am exactly where I am meant to be.
This is easy. It is fun. I am doing a great job.
I’ll keep you posted about my progress in changing my stories.
