I bet it's not what you think...
Did you know that one of the biggest causes of suffering is simply that we feel we are inadequate? That we are unworthy?
Where do you think self-sabotage comes from? Why do we "ruin relationships" when they're going so well? Why do we think of our greatest fears right when we're in the middle of having the best day ever?
I'll tell you why.
Many of us are programmed at an early age to think that we are not pretty enough, not smart enough, not funny enough, not a good enough son or daughter.
So how are we supposed to enjoy happiness in our life, if inside we're holding onto this belief that we don't deserve it?
There's one shockingly simple trick to help you start.
And that trick?
To tell yourself, you are enough.
I know, it seems too easy. BUT DON'T EX OUT OF THIS POST. I'm serious.
Affirmations, inspirational calendars, sports coaches giving motivational speeches before a big game; these are all examples of different tools used to change our internal beliefs about what's possible. What we're capable of. And what we deserve.
Even if you don't want to spend the time to watch this video, do one thing for me.
Just this one thing!
Write I AM ENOUGH on your mirror in big letters. Leave it there for one month and read it to yourself every day.
If in one month you haven't felt a shift, you haven't noticed that you feel even that much more capable, deserving, and happy, then take it down. Take it down, and email me to tell me it had no impact on you.
But if you DO notice a difference (which you will) then PLEASE write me and tell me.
What if "enough" doesn't resonate with you? Maybe you need to be more specific. If that's the case, then please, do that.
Here are some other examples of things you could write to remind you how ENOUGH you are, right now, just as you are, just as you've always been:
- I am a great wife/husband
- I am a great boss/employee
- I am a fantastic writer
- I am HILARIOUS
- I am a great daughter/son/brother/sister
- I am a great lover
Whatever thing in your life you have self-doubt around, or guilt, or a lack of worthiness, flip that bad boy and tell yourself you are the BEST at that thing that there ever was.
Because you are more than enough.
