“I can’t do it.” “It’s too difficult.” “I’m not worth it.“
What I’m about to tell you will be difficult to hear. And it may be even more difficult to accept.
But here goes…
The story you’re telling yourself internally directly correlates to the current state of your life. In other words, the narrative you’ve created (the attitudes you hold) significantly impacts how your life turns out.
Let me give you a few examples:
If you believe you can’t do something. Guess what? You’re not even going to try. If you believe you don’t deserve great things. Guess what? You’re always going to settle.
Our thoughts, our attitudes, essentially our mindset are the first step to creating the lifestyle we want and the direction it’s going to take. I’m not talking about reciting positive affirmations here. I’m talking about getting control of your thought process and taking the necessary steps.
How do you do that?
You have to realize your story first. Why haven’t you lost those 25 lbs? Why do you deserve any less than someone else? Why haven’t you signed up for that workout program you’ve been thinking about? What have you been telling yourself?
Once you have identified your story, you have to recreate it. I’m not going to sugar-coat this but this step will be one of the toughest steps. You have to change the attitudes you’ve held for so long.
Remember, the best version of the story of your life is the one that you create.
