It’s time to talk about those BS stories in your head that are holding you back from achieving your goals. You know the ones I’m talking about. Those negative, self-deprecating, fear-driven stories that play out in your mind like some twisted, depressing movie.
Here’s the thing – we all have them. We all have those moments where we doubt ourselves, where we question our abilities, where we’re afraid to take risks. It’s part of being human. But if you let those stories take over, if you let them dictate your every move, you’re never going to achieve your goals. You’re never going to get where you want to go!
So, how do you get rid of those stories? First, you have to recognize them for what they are – BS. They’re not based in reality.
They’re not reflective of your abilities or your potential. They’re just fear-based stories that your mind has conjured up to keep you safe. But safe doesn’t equal success. Safe equals mediocrity.
Once you’ve recognized those stories as BS, it’s time to call them out.Tell them why they’re not true. Show them the evidence of your successes, your accomplishments, your strengths. And when those stories come up again, tell them to shut the heck up.
But it’s not just about shutting down those stories. It’s also about replacing them with positive, empowering stories. Stories that fuel your motivation, stories that remind you of your goals and why they matter, stories that give you hope and confidence. It’s about cultivating a mindset that supports your growth, that encourages you to take risks, that believes in your ability to succeed.
You see, it’s not just about achieving your goals. It’s about who you become in the process. It’s about the person you have to become in order to achieve those goals. You have to become someone who isn’t afraid to fail, who isn’t afraid to take risks, who isn’t afraid to challenge those bullshit stories in your head. You have to become someone who is relentless, who is determined, who is resilient.
Who do you want to be? Do you want to be someone who is held back by those stories? Or do you want to be someone who rises to achieves the goals despite them? The choice is yours.
