Why do we let others decide what’s possible or not? How do they know? And what’s their motivation? So often it’s fear, conformity, or lack of imagination. At one point, people said it was impossible to run a mile in under 4 minutes. Then Roger Bannister did it – and so did others. Clearly, we can rise above impossible! Look at all the Olympic athletes performing their personal best. They are not all setting world records, but so many are rising above their own impossible. I especially love the stories of the para-lympic athletes competing and winning medals despite major...
ABANDON LIMITING BELIEFS
“If we can see past preconceived limitations then the possibilities are endless,” proclaimed Amy Purdy,
who got the highest score on week one of Dancing with the Stars, despite dancing on not one, but two prosthetic legs!
She didn’t let a major handicap stop her and it didn’t. You see, life is meant to be awesome, and amazing, and easy!
So put aside what others say and listen to that inner voice cheering you on, inspiring you to get out there.
Then take all those chances and do all those things that you were told were impossible. Leap off that cliff with a smile and a roar,
feeling absolutely 100 percent confident that your wings will appear and you’ll fly and you’ll soar!
Do you ever wonder why you remain filled with fear, uncertainty and doubt, no matter what you achieve? And do you ever wonder why feeling happy seems so dependent on people and events around you? That’s because of me, your Inner Critic. I make sure you keep looking for that happy feeling from praise and achievements. But it’s oh so temporary, isn’t it? I just love that roller coaster ride of emotions you go through. Happy and high for a bit, and then poof! It’s gone and you’re down craving that next achievement. As your Inner Critic, it’s so much...
Pre-Performance Anxiety Reinterpreted “Research published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology shows that instead of trying to calm yourself down, ‘reappraising pre-performance anxiety as excitement’ is often advantageous. When you suppress pre-event nerves, you are inherently telling yourself that something is wrong. Not only does this make the situation worse, but it takes emotional and physical energy to fight off the feeling of anxiety – energy that could be better spent on the task at hand… Simply telling yourself ‘I am excited’ shifts your demeanor from what they call a threat mindset (stressed out and apprehensive) to an opportunity mindset...
Have you ever been told by an authority you respect that you have limiting beliefs? I did recently, and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I felt like a door had just been slammed in my face. (The thing is, I kind of suspected it, but did he have to remind me so blatantly?)
You know that feeling when you’re so full of love, So radiant and light, So centered, so vibrant and oh so alive? That’s called alignment between body and soul, Between you and that magical Being inside. It’s not a straight line It’s not rigid, or hard.
Get me out of this box! It’s boring in here. Staring at nothing.
Exactly the same as everyone else.
