“You’ll never be good enough.”
“We’re just average.”
“Humble yourself, you’re too much.”
“He’s an actor, he’s just acting.”
“You’re a loser.”
Oh man oh man, let’s open up a can of worms this morning shall we?! Chances are you’ve heard some form of the quotes above and they’ve stuck with you to this very day whether you know it or not, they’ve become your LIMITING BELIEFS. Things that have been told to you by loved ones or people you held in high regard that your brain had no other choice but to hold onto and believe and you’ve carried that weight with you to this day. It influences the way you carry yourself, the people you surround yourself with, the substances you choose to consume, your sleep patterns, etc.
Pretty fucked up, huh?
Now, how the hell do we thrive in life with such trauma inducing triggers planted all around our mind like a minefield?! We don’t. And we haven’t for quite some time now. But we can start if we decide to CHANGE. Change the way our brain thinks by exercising, eating healthy, acknowledging when things/people do not serve you, t-h-e-r-a-p-y, etc.
This is something I’ve been dissecting within myself for the past year and although it’s a daily battle I find myself winning more often than not by taking proactive steps towards being proud of myself and who I’m becoming. Who I am today isn’t even close to who I was 10 years, 5 years, 1 year ago and I’m extremely stoked on that. You’re not supposed to be who you were last week, you’re supposed to be ever-changing, adapting, and evolving into someone that YOU love and someone that YOU are proud of. Fuck those limiting beliefs and the trauma horse they rode in on. Change your brain.
Fight the good fight today!
