Are the scripts that have been handed down to us from our parents, teachers, anyone who had a significant part of our upbringing.
They are their beliefs and views that have been chilled into our subconsciousness
So that when someone for example says that you only need to save an extra £100 either by not spending or cutting back to help you become financially free
You come up with an automatic response like
Yeah but I can’t save because I was born in this part of town or I didn’t go to university so I can’t do that…
These automatic scripts that we didn’t even know we had hold us back in many many ways just simply by shutting out any possible alternative to our subconscious views…
Its like the label thing I wrote about the other day
Next time you respond with an excuse you didn’t even think about, you need to question the excuse
Because it probably holds no weight and is just holding you back
A new page.
Every single day is a blank piece of paper.
You are your pen.
How are you going to write your day?
Are you just going to copy yesterday’s page
or are you going to write the best page you have ever written.
The Stories We Tell
We are limited by the stories we tell ourselves. I am this, I am that I can’t this and I can’t that.
They restrict us to a box that we can’t grow from.
But when we look at the Universe in its constant state of expansion, Then look at us beings in that universe, Aren’t we meant for expansion too?
If our purpose is for expansion and growth, then those stories we tell ourselves have to grow to.
And if the stories have to grow, then so does that box that restricts us.
Bad chapters can still create great stories
Real life isn’t a movie or a book so that magical ending isn’t going to automatically happen,
But if you keep pushing through your struggles, through the hard times
Then you can turn this bad chapter into a great story but not if you settle this chapter for the ending.
The important thing is, To be ready at any moment to sacrifice what you are, For what you could become– Charles Dubois
Holding on is what we do, we hold on to a belief or a thought that this is the way we are supposed to be living,
Holding on to stories that we’ve been brought up with, Like the Disney Princess story,
You know growing up, find love, at first sight, get married and live happily ever after…
Even though this rarely happens,
That was just one example, there are many examples of us holding on…
The issue is whilst we’re holding on to some story we’re not allowing any more to unfold
Sometimes you just need to let go, Live that Pocahontas life and go where the wind takes you
Take a risk and sacrifice your old self so a new one can emerge.
‘Yeah but what if that life is no good for me’…
What if it is
