Do you dream of creating a life you love but feel like there is something holding you back? What if that something was YOU and the old stories you keep telling yourself?
Inner demons, old stories, habitual thought patterns, call them what you will- we all have them. Lately I’ve been learning a lot about how our thoughts form our speech, which in turn form our actions.
I used to think I had no control over my thoughts… but even that old story has been replaced with a new story, a beautiful little story which goes by the name of introspection.
As I work through a Clarity group coaching program with my mentor Andrè Hartwich, we have come to a section called introspection. Here’s how it works: basically, I replace the old story with a new one… It’s that simple!
So, here’s what I do, at the end of my day I just go through my day and review what happened, what was said how I felt and what I thought. If there is anything that didn’t make me feel so good about myself for example my latest one was why I couldn’t write these blog posts as “I wasn’t ready” I simply replace it with a new version of the story- Then, I run through the story in my mind changing it to how I would like it to be. Feeling what I want to feel and saying what I want to say, in this case it was I am writing blog posts to help others be the change they want to see in the world.
This simple yet powerful technique has changed how I respond to life around me. We know we can’t control what happens to us, but we can control how we react to things, and this little gem called introspection is a game changer.
I feel calmer, clearer and happier with who I am choosing to be in the world.
Now over to you, do you feel stuck somewhere? What old stories are you telling yourself? It maybe something as simple as changing the name of your old thought patterns from inner demons (which sounds so scary and difficult to replace) to “old stories” which can be easily substituted with new ones.
Now we’d love to hear from you, what old story are you telling yourself? & what new story could you replace it with?
