ARE YOU AFRAID?

Each one of us is afraid of something. Some of us are afraid of not being enough, some of us are afraid of not having enough and some of us are afraid of not doing enough.

Each one of us is afraid of something. Some of us are afraid of not being enough, some of us are afraid of not having enough and some of us are afraid of not doing enough.

For one reason or another we are afraid and it seems like we are afraid because of different reasons.

May be it’s because of our lack of trust to our self or lack of trust to others.

May be we don’t love ourselves enough.

May be we have doubts about others.

In the end we are all afraid. It is part of being human.

The three irrational beliefs of not being enough, or not doing enough or not having enough may drive you insane. People get insomnia. People turn friends into enemies. And these beliefs destroy your self-esteem, they even drive addictions.

How about instead of thinking that you are not enough, saying to yourself “I am enough!”

Instead of thinking that you don’t do enough, saying to yourself “I do enough!”

And instead of thinking that you don’t have enough, saying to yourself “I have enough.”

By changing your thoughts around, your life will change so much.

If you just say these things to yourself or write them on a paper/card and stick them at places you can see around the house and see them all the time, all your tasks will look and feel easy.

Affirmations change a lot.

The reason why affirmations work is because affirmations are the 'code', the 'language', the natural way your mind does business. Self-talk - the traffic of your brain - starts out as an affirmation from the outside. These affirmations are either created by you or given to you by others.

They are the statements that you repeat to yourself on a daily basis.

So when new affirmations like “I am enough!” “I do enough!” “I have enough!” are introduced into the 'mix' they will either be rejected or accepted depending on whether or not they align with what's already in your mind. If something you hear or read fits with your world view it will be quickly absorbed into your inner world.

The opposite is also true if something does not fit with your 'map' of how things are, it will be quickly rejected.

Things get very interesting when you decide to introduce an affirmation into the mix that you know does not align with your current paradigm. The reason why affirmations work and why they are so effective comes into play at this exact point.

The subconscious mind does not discriminate. This part of your heart and soul accepts whatever the conscious mind sends it. So if your conscious mind has made a decision with strong intention to change a core belief, the subconscious mind will simply accept it.

Other than these affirmations you can learn how to live it by getting the feel. What does success look like to you? Dress that way. How would you act when you are successful? Act that way.

Also you can always choose to feel safe. Think of it this way. So what if it doesn’t work and you have to start from the beginning? Sometimes you do need to crawl back but so what? Just enjoy it! Continue…. You have enough!

Don’t be afraid to knock on the doors. Always remember there are only two answers “Yes” or “No.” If the answer is “No,” move to the next door. You are enough! If the answer is “Yes,” great!

Do you know what tomorrow will bring? Not only tomorrow, actually do you know what next minute will bring you?
No!

So live it your way.

The way your heart tells you to.

Until next week keep cool and healthy!
