You Know the Time
It’s Time to Rage War on those Self-Limiting – Beliefs, Images, feelings, Self Talk(always two sides, even internally :), Decisions & Actions…
So what really stops us… Beliefs Yes Beliefs that we’re not good enough, these beliefs of self-worth are a reflection of past experiences both, Real & Imagined
Let Me Explain…
Your past memories are constructs of your imagination & your ability to remember certain details… we do not remember everything because we would be completely overloaded and time would get distorted as every day would blend together.
how do we cope
Well, we delete, distort & generalise what we deem to be irrelevant information e.g.. remember the first time you meet someone you were attracted to or the day you saw your dream car…
what else was happening around that time, the weather, other people other cars? chances are you will only remember the person and generalise everything else!
Anyway, so if you can now get a picture of yourself in your mind.
How do you see yourself?
do you see as if through your own eyes or do you see yourself as if it’s a movie or painting?
The thing is you didn’t see this 2nd person or 3rd person perspective unless you were looking in a mirror!
You have constructed the reality as you want to remember it, not what actually took place!
Some call these coping mechanisms, we protect ourselves by changing and distorting events to suit our self-image…eg we have low self-esteem but achieve something great, we pass it off as a fluke or a lucky break and don’t accept it as a victory that should be rewarded by celebration… how many times has this happened, but on the reverse we get something wrong and fail… and completely turn our worlds upside down and back to front with self-ridicule and link it to every time in the past that we messed up as if it is the norm rather than unique… instead of seeing it as feedback that we haven’t the knowledge or experience
Our Brains are very complicated things that operate on simple commands.
Our brains don’t understand negative statements and then erase…it only understands command and action!
This is good Why?
This is good because now you know, you can start to reprogram situations that disempower you!
How… you can choose how to remember!
Don’t over analyze, it’s simple but with practise, you can learn to control your responses to everything that happens and/or remember in greater detail!
