55 – Stories we tell ourselves and how to get past them

Have you ever got to a birthday or major milestone in your life and found yourself feeling unhappy with how things have or haven’t worked out?
Have you gotten to a certain time in your business and thought you should be further ahead or be making more money ?
 
These old blueprints or old beliefs where we think we “should” be, or think we “should” have achieved something or become something, or was “supposed” to have experienced by now only cause us pain and regret, and can keep us stuck in self pity and self doubt.
 
So how do we get past them?
 
On today’s podcast, I go through a process to be able to reflect on life as it is and find a way to move forward by uncovering what’s really important in life!

Through every stage in our life we realise there are beliefs we have about what we think we should have achieved, or was supposed to have by this time in our lives and this can often be a story we have adopted from someone or something else.

This can be a place where we feel out of control, helpless and stuck in a place of suffering. This is not an ideal place to be and can leave us feeling unworthy, undeserving and useless.

It’s important that we use these milestones in life to reflect on how far we have come and uncover what is really important in our lives.

Today’s episode is all about recognizing where we have a story or old blueprint causing us pain and how to get past it.

By utilising these questions, we are able to get out of a state of negative emotion and into a place of gratitude and appreciation.

  • What am I happy about in my life right now?
  • What am I excited about in my life now?
  • What am I proud of in my life now?
  • What am I grateful about in my life now?
  • What am I committed to in my life right now?
  • Who do I love? Who loves me?

The next stage to be able to move past these old beliefs is to discover what is really important to us.
