Our self-limiting beliefs is the number one killer―the number one factor that holds us back from achieving our greater potential. It’s our internal stories that hold us back from seeing and going after the unlimited opportunities that are available to us. However, we can change our story by installing new beliefs ones that will take us where we want to go. This post shows how it takes just 21 days to change your story.
I remember my good friend saying that the reason why I was not attaining the goals that I set out to accomplish, that it was not because of what I was doing or not doing but because of the blocks―the limiting beliefs―the stories that were buried deep within my subconscious mind. This was one of the hardest things that I had to accept. The idea that I had to go back into my history examine my experiences to discover my limiting beliefs―then delete them from my internal hard drive and install a new set of positive beliefs before being able to achieve massive success. This seemed like bull crap to me. But, the more I studied successful people the more I noticed that this was being addressed by many of the super achievers. Once I got the message I began to implement her advice.
So if you are like I was, if you ever find yourself feeling hopeless. If you find yourself saying, “Those opportunities are only for other people”, “I’m not smart enough”, “I’m not talented enough”, or “I can’t do that.” then listen up.
We can conquer the mental enemies. The ones that are blocking our success―by installing our new story―by immersing our mind with new beliefs. We must get rid of our fears, our negative thinking. Get rid of any old beliefs such as the world is bad, politics are corrupt, these are tough times, there are no better jobs out there.
The current state of our lives is related to the stories which we tell ourselves. Our story is a direct result of not what we believe is possible, not that which we say is possible, but what we believe deep within our subconscious mind. Beliefs are good when they are anchored in a good way, good when they are helping you to create a positive story. It’s essential to able to tell the difference between a good story and a convenient lie.
How do we get rid of the old non-empowering stories you say. We can start by going back in our past to locate the negative thought, replace it with a new empowering thought and speaking the new truth. Repeat it over and over again to erase the old story and to put in place the new one. We must change our perception, plant a new belief. No one else can change it for you. It takes just 21 days of new positive affirmations to begin to wipe out the old story and to see results.
So for the next 21 days, you can create a new story by telling yourself your new truth. For example, if in your head you were told that your will never be successful. For the next 21 days would say to yourself. “I am so thankful and grateful now that I am highly successful.” However, remember now that in order to see it you must have faith, you must believe it before you can see it. For 21 days see yourself as successful, do the things successful people do, dress walk act think the part, act as if it is impossible to fail. DO, BE, HAVE. You simply must believe.
So in my prior post on habits, I did mention new habits takes just 21 days to make effective change. It takes just 21 days to change your story. So don’t start beating up on yourself nor get mad at the Universe if it does not happen immediately, just continue to be patient and persistent.
In conclusion, to banish your old story you must start somewhere and must start sometime. Immerse yourself in your new positive powerful beliefs. Change what you read and watch, what you listen to on your daily commute and be mindful of who you hang out with. Replace your old story with a new positive one, do so through affirmations, use of a vision board, visualization and be aware of your words speak positivity into your life.
