I asked a practice member who is 8 at my chiropractic clinic the other day
“How was soccer practice”
To which she responded…“I am horrible, the other girls laugh at me because I’m always messing up.”
Notice that I didn’t ask her how she did in soccer, I simply asked her “How was practice.”
So often we do this in our lives by responding in a negative fashion and connecting the event to who we are as a person.
It’s just an event…it doesn’t represent who you are or what you are capable of.
Here is a list of all too common conversations I have with patients…..
“How was your workout?”
“Horrible, I am such a klutz and can’t keep up with the trainer.”
“How was school?”
“I’m such an idiot…nothing makes any sense.”
“How was your vacation?”
“I always forget something and then my husband tortures me the entire trip about being so forgetful”
Disconnect the event from WHO you are and begin fueling your mind with WHAT you see yourself as………
I am powerful.
I am success.
I am love.
I am a magnet for all good things.
I am charismatic.
I am prosperous.
I am happiness, joy and laughter.
I am healthy.
I am Inspiring.
Start speaking who you see yourself to be…..not necessarily who you are or how others define you.
YOU DEFINE YOU.
