Nothing in the world feels more true than the things that we tell ourselves in our own minds. You know what I'm talking about? These are the phrases and words that we tell ourselves over and over again as if we have our favorite song on repeat on the radio. Here's the thing though, the things that we tell ourselves are a reflection of what's going on in our lives. What you think you become and what you become is your new norm.
This week on The Gutsy Podcast, we're gonna bust a lot of that shit, okay? Because you've got some really incredible things that you are oh so freaking capable of doing, but you have talked yourself out of being able to do them. Mindset is everything, and today we're going to start to chip away at some of those things so we can start saying the things that we actually are.
Now you might be thinking, "Oh, here we go. Here's another positive vibes only." Just like any other emotion, positivity is a choice. But today, we're not going to celebrate being a 100% positive all the freaking time because let's just face it—it's not realistic. Sometimes, shit is real and sometimes we feel like crap. And you know what? That's okay. What I want to dig into today though are the repetitive things that go on in your mind when no one else is around. These are things like:
"You suck. Why would you even try this? I mean, you're entirely too fat to wear that. So you should definitely put on something more sensible. Something that covers everything up (or) I told you we would fail so way to go. Here we are again. You're not even good enough or worthy enough for that kind of life. So why would you even think like that? I can't do it. I don't have enough money. What is everyone going to think of me?"
