We all tell stories to ourselves…some stories we tell uplift and energize us and some stories bring us down about ourselves or others.
As I told my client last week, if you are going to tell yourself a story, you may as well tell yourself a good one! Your story determines your attitude, your passion and your next steps=-) I believe that each of us has strength areas in our lives (i.e. Relationships, Career, Family, Financial, Health, Spiritual etc.) I also believe that each of us has ONE AREA that drives us bananas and most likely will continue to be somewhat challenging throughout our lives. It is our growth and journey inducing arena=-)
Knowing that one area may continue to baffle and confound me helps me to accept, allow and be patient with myself in that arena. I am committed to “love myself anyway”=-) On the other hand, I have a goal to have the absolute best life possible, so I most likely will be working on and through that arena (for me it is romantic relationships) till the day I take my last breath=-) The questions below get to the heart of that journey and exploring your strength area stories, so you can begin to plant those stories into the more vulnerable areas.
Below is an excerpt of questions from my Harnessing the Laws of Attraction Dabble (www.dabble.co) class:
Please list the Top Strength Areas in your life:
Please list your Belief Systems in these areas:
Please list the Areas for Improvement in your life:
Please list your belief systems in these areas (the “Laws of Repulsion”=-):
Please list your newly created belief systems for your focus areas:
How are you going to plant and practice these new belief systems?
Laverty Life Links: Think of the stories that you tell that energize you and tell those more OFTEN!=-) Now think of stories you tell that bring your energy down—consider if you can shift that story to a better one. Perhaps you can map on one of your energizing stories onto the more “draining one”. If you would like the worksheet on this, feel free to let me know and I will email it to you! =-)
