"We can believe anything we want. There is no restriction to what we are allowed to believe."
Isn’t that a mind blowing thought. Imagine just believing anything you wanted to about yourself!
I watched the film “I Feel Pretty” with Amy Schumer recently. It you haven’t watched it before, Amy’s character struggles with feelings of insecurity and inadequacy especially around her appearance. She lacks self-confidence and this stops her from putting herself out in the world and doing what she dreams of doing. After falling off a spin bike and bumping her head she wakes up believing that she looks like a super model. This brings about a new confidence in her and she believes she capable of doing anything she puts her mind to. In reality, she is exactly the same person as she was but she just has this new belief in herself which allows her to live the life of her dreams.
The mind blowing thing is that we are all capable of believing exactly what we want to about ourselves and we don’t even need to knock ourselves out to do it! A belief is just a thought you keep on thinking over and over again and when you’ve thought it so many times you don’t even recognise it’s a thought anymore. You just think it’s a fact. If you could believe anything you wanted to about yourself what would it be? That’s a pretty amazing question to consider.
I don’t know about you but I’ve got quite a long list of things I’d like to believe. So just decide what you want to believe about yourself. Anything you want. Take this new thought and start thinking it on purpose over and over again until you truly believe it. How fun it that!
