ARTICLE OF THE MONTH: "Shifting from Can't to Can: 8 Practices to Put in Place Right Now" by Aimee Halpin
Did you know that your brain believes what it hears on a regular basis? This is true especially if you say it out loud or even under your breath multiple times a day. If you say "I can't do that," your brain believes you and makes it come to pass in some area of your life.
As we begin to look at the way we
are talking to ourselves, our beliefs start to change. The words that are red flags in our minds are things like: never, hate, won't, can't, and even always.
If we tell ourselves things in absolutes, we start to believe them...even if they are not true.
I want you to think of an area where you are selling yourself short right now. Where do you tell yourself you can't achieve a goal that would really make a difference in your life? Breathe. Pause. Reflect. I want you to visualize the negative words as balloons and you are now releasing them to the sky.
I am going to show you eight practices that you can put in place right now that will really help you make that shift from can't to can. All you need to do is believe.
