How closely do you pay attention to what you say? Have you ever said something and instantly recognized the limitation you’ve put on yourself?
Consider this: notice the how your body feels when you say, “I don’t know how to do that.” And now notice how your body feels when you say, “I have not yet learned how to do that.”
When I say the first sentence out loud, my head tilts down and my shoulders slump as if I’m withdrawing inward. For the second sentence, “I have not yet learned how to do that,” my head tilts upward as if there’s already a willingness to try something different.
Has anyone you know ever been proud to admit defeat? Do they hold their head up high, with shoulders back, as if it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to them? It’s not likely. But on the other hand, think of when you’ve had something to celebrate. Do you hang your head in shame, as if it’s nothing to be excited about? Not usually!
When someone does hangs their head after something is wonderful, it’s because they have fear they’re going to lose it, or it’s not right to celebrate, or some other limitation they’re experiencing as a result of a belief system they possess.
The body reacts to what we have stored in our subconscious. If what’s stored in that database doesn’t support us, we respond physiologically — and usually we don’t know we’re doing it. The example I gave above was just body language! But what if your migraines are actually a result of your beliefs? Or allergies? Or inability to adhere to a diet? Or even financial difficulties?
When you start identifying your beliefs as supporting or limiting, it’s much easier for you to accomplish your goals. You’ll finally be able to identify what’s holding you back from achieving what you want. And at least consciously, you can remind yourself of everything that is good and push yourself to shift those beliefs. Or, you can do it faster by Balancing those beliefs. 🙂
In this video, you’ll learn how important what you say is in shaping the beliefs you have and the potential you’re able to reach. (Pssst… your potential is limitless!)
When you identify the limiting beliefs you’d like to rewire into supporting beliefs, check out my Work with Me page to see if there’s a package that best fits your needs, or schedule a Complimentary Q&A call to discuss what we can to do Balance for those beliefs.
