Do you ever feel like you can’t get out of your head? Your mind is filled with the same thoughts that play over and over. Do you worry and have a lot of anxiety? Are you operating out of fear? Are these blocks to stepping into your worth?
When we start waking up to our inner self, we can start changing it. Awareness is the first step toward making change. Below are some immediate steps you can take to begin shifting your self-worth and stepping into your greatness.
1. Change your thoughts. Your thoughts determine your feelings, and your feelings determine your behavior. It’s important we work on changing our thoughts. When you are fearful or anxious, focus on being grateful. It can be as simple as being thankful for the ability to see or hear or observing nature and noticing what you appreciate. An attitude of gratitude can instantly change your mood. Keep a gratitude journal and write in it to start and end your day.
2. Do something different. Have you heard the saying, “What you resist will persist”? Are you in resistance to something in your life, such as change, because you are afraid of pain, getting hurt or failing? If so, you are going to stay stuck in the same pattern and way of thinking and being. If you do the same thing, you will get the same results. For example, when you feel angry or afraid, instead of yelling, screaming or withdrawing, take a walk and be intentional about it.
3. Try out different ways of being. If you want more joy in your life, try stepping into joyfulness. Walk around as if you are joyful. If you want to be more flexible, try being flexible in different situations. We are all born pure souls, and then we are layered with childhood stuff, trauma, society, peer pressure and so on. We want to get back to who we are at the core.
4. Develop a vision. We think in pictures. Picture the vision for your life and how you want to be or act. Having a vision can lead you to change your thoughts, feelings and to take action.
You are here for a purpose! It’s never too late to get rid of the old negative tapes that started early in your life and be the person you were created to be.
