My work is about rewriting the rules in your head. The rules that you created, for probably some good reason a while back, but that no longer help you.
You know what? Those rules can change. That thinking can be better.
Lately I’m hearing a lot of these comments from my clients and friends. Maybe you hear or say them too. “Not enough . . . [fill in the blank].”
Some of the blanks are: Not enough time or money or motivation or support. “I’m not good enough. “ (That’s a doozy- ouch!)
I’ve never met anyone that didn’t have these thoughts at some time or another. Including myself.
But ya know, it doesn’t have to be like this. We have more control over this than we give ourselves credit. A lot of times it’s not even the circumstances stopping us, but the thoughts that we have about the circumstances.
And who controls those thoughts? You right? It’s like the habit of going to the same restaurant day after day and constantly complaining and being disappointed about the food. Why not choose a different restaurant? Profound yet simple right? (grin)
So, why not try a different way of thinking?
Can it be that simple?
Uh yeah. Because here’s the thing . . when we shift our thoughts we allow ourselves to see new options and fresh opportunities.
I remember someone, that was really struggling with the mess her world was creating, saying “You know, Jo, I know you’re all in to that Self-Help Stuff. But that’s just not for me.”
But the Truth of it is, Self-Help is the only Help that works. Until you want to change, change in all it’s different forms will pass you by.
Yep, you gotta want it. And then you gotta do something about it.
But when you do, your Life will change. Yes it will.
