I was having a chat with a friend about work and business and life and I made a statement about my past and said ‘when I had a real job’…
Later I was thinking about that statement and realised that if I felt that my current business wasn’t a ‘real job’ then that was most likely what was holding me back in so many ways. If that is the story I tell myself and believe, that reflects in the actions I will (or won’t) take.
That language we use out loud and in our own heads… those words are POWERFUL.
What stories do you tell yourself that have you believe something that holds you back from achieving great things in your life?
‘I come from a fat family’
‘I don’t have the willpower’
‘I am not the type of person to go to university’
‘People like me don’t go to the gym’
Listen to the words that you are using. Are they really, genuinely true? Or do they make you feel better because the responsibility of your life is not in your hands?
I have bad news for you… I have a real job – it’s running my business empire Warrior Woman Project and that means that the stories that you are telling yourself that hold you back from being the person you really want to be are bullshit.
You know it, I know it…
You get up every morning and have so many decisions to make; your mood, what you eat, what you drink, what you wear, how you hold yourself, whether or not you pack your gym clothes, whether or not you actually go to the gym, whether or not you apply for the promotion / university course / funding to start up your own business, what time you go to bed…
In among all those decisions you are running a story and belief system that allows you to be who you want to be…
If that decision is to be unhappy, unhealthy, not responsible for anything that happens to you, then that is your choice.
But, if your decision is be happy, healthy, fully responsible for all your actions that is also your choice…
It’s not what happens to us that makes the difference, it’s how we respond to what happens – that is our choice.
So I am taking responsibility for my life, getting signed up on courses that I have said for years I wanted to do and with mentors that will help me take more action (I am actually counting down the days until I can get signed up with this new mentor).
If you are ready to take responsibility you don’t need to do things alone – in fact I don’t recommend that you do it alone at all, I have tried it (mostly to save money and it has cost me time and money in the long run) and you would like to work with me, I have had my beautiful assistant work some magic and added a Work With Me tab on the website so you can see all the different ways to work with me.
I have my book, online courses and products, and in person courses and products. If you are in doubt then you can always get booked in for a FREE no obligation Warrior Call and we can have a chat. www.warriorwomanproject.com/work-with-me
Loving you and your responsibility
