Having Trouble Moving Forward, Or
- Overcoming persistent procrastination?
- Getting out of the daily funk of feeling like a failure?
- Breaking out of unfulfilling relationships?
Maybe you have tied yourself up with too many "Nots"
Well, let me ask you a question - Have you ever found yourself talking to yourself using self-limiting words like …
- I’m not smart
- I’m not attractive
- I’m not one of the lucky ones
That’s what I call tying ourselves up in “nots”. These nots are incredibly strong. They keep us bound to a small unfulfilling life that leaves us feeling frustrated, unsuccessful and often hopelessly depressed.
These nots may have been originally tied by someone early in our lives like a parent, teacher or another powerful figure but each time we tell ourselves another “not” we cinch it tighter and tighter until we can’t move.
The most important thing we need to know is that we can also untie the nots in our life. Yes, you and I have the ability to replace the nots with a “what if” or a “why not”. Nots are not unraveled overnight or through reciting some positive affirmation. They must be pulled apart strand by strand until the not becomes a can and the limitless possibilities of your life open up to you like a beautiful story.
I know … it sounds like a fantasy but fairy tales do come true and people are finding freedom from their nots every day, and so can you!
You can start this journey by beginning to hack away at those nots in your life when you catch yourself pulling the rope tighter. Try this:
Stop – Yeah that’s right just stop telling yourself the same crap you’ve told yourself all your life.
Think – What do you want to be true of your life? What do you want to be your new reality?
Replace – Make that the content of the new things you say to yourself.
Okay, I know it’s not that easy but this is a start and everyone has to start somewhere. My life is dedicated to helping you (and me) untie the nots in our lives and to live the life we were meant to live. So If I can help let me know.
Meanwhile, hang out on our new Facebook Page “Get Real - Relationships” for more stuff about living without nots.
