Your brain believes everything it’s told.
I know, right?!
Everything, no matter if it’s true or not.
Over the years, stories you were told about yourself built upon the stories already there, just like interest compounds on a bank account.
Even if you don’t remember the originals, or who told them, your brain squirrels away that information then quietly replays it at some crucial juncture, stopping you in your tracks and making you doubt yourself and your abilities.
But you can change that.
Start by rewriting the ending of your existing stories.
Take “I can’t do that” and tack on “I wonder who I can ask for help.”
Or start with “I’ll never be able to afford that!” and finish it with “but it’s going on my vision board anyway, and I’ll start tracking all my income.”
You can create new stories for yourself, too.
For example, create a list of 100 things that you like about yourself.
Include things you’re proud of, and difficulties you’ve overcome.
Read that list last thing each night before turning off the light, and let it all permeate your subconscious while you sleep.
Or read it out loud while you tap on your EFT points.
Really get into it – sound excited, move your body, let go a few whoop-whoops, and have a good time.
Those old stories won’t go without a fight.
But because your brain believes everything it’s told, replace the old stories entirely with new ones that help you move forward with certainty and joy.
