I have always loved this quote by Gandhi.
I used to have it hanging on my bulletin board in my office. When I moved, I took it down and honestly forgot about it.
Today, I woke up thinking about this quote and how essential it is to really take these words to heart.
Your beliefs become your thoughts…
How many of your beliefs are actually true? Have you ever stopped long enough to recognize your beliefs?
I used to have beliefs that were actually keeping me stuck. Can you imagine believing…that you’re not good enough, that no one could possibly love you for being yourself or that you didn’t deserve to make a substantial amount of money (at least not without a struggle).
Hmmm…those beliefs sucked. And those beliefs were on the top of my mind…all day long.
Your thoughts become your words…
I wish I could say this wasn’t true but your words certainly derive from your thoughts. If you feel less than, it’s no surprise that negative statements come pouring out of your mouth.
- “I can’t [insert any goal].”
- “No one will ever [love/respect/want] me because I am too [insert derogatory word].”
I’m guessing you’ve said something similar, yes? Do you think it’s time to shift your thoughts?
Your words become your actions…
Or become your inactions in some cases. When you’re degrading yourself, do you think you take positive actions?
I know I didn’t.
What would happen if you shifted your words from negative ones to positive ones? What if you kicked your old eff’d up beliefs to the curb and created new ones? Do you think your actions would change? You bet your ass they would.
Your actions become your habits…
What you do consistently becomes second nature. Be aware of your actions. Are they serving you? If the answer is no, it’s time to change them.
Your habits become your values…
Are your beliefs, thoughts, actions and habits in alignment with your true values? Do you even know what you value? I’ve talked to far too many women who have no idea what they value anymore. Don’t you think it’s time you sat down and assessed what’s important to you?
Your values become your destiny…
If you’re not in alignment with your values, you’re going to find yourself in a vicious cycle of always getting what you don’t want. Is that what you envisioned for your life?
I didn’t think so.
Change your beliefs. And change your life. (tweet, tweet)
So, I want to hear from you. In the comments below, share with me one your beliefs–one that you are ready to shift. Ready. Set. Go.
