I’m up early (once again) putting on the finishing touches for a workshop for the women in my Fit + Vibrant Over 50 Membership. I’m coaching on limiting beliefs: how to identify the underlying cause of our eating challenges and more importantly, how to overcome them.
We don’t actually care much about our beliefs. What we really want to change is our actions: our behaviors, and our habits.
All behaviours are belief-driven, and your subconscious will work hard to prove yourself right.
If you believe you’re ‘all or nothing’, you’ll prove yourself right.
If you believe people who are thin are selfish, you’ll subconsciously sabotage your efforts to lose weight.
If you believe that you can’t handle uncomfortable emotions, or that somethings wrong if you feel them, you’ll continue to numb yourself out with food or other vices.
Beliefs are simply an acceptance that a statement is true or that something exists.
However, so many of our beliefs are based on partial truths or complete lies, and many are formed when we are young.
Yet, we operate on them (behaviours, habits + feelings) as if they are 100% true.
I wanted to share this picture I found somewhere down the proverbial rabbit hole of social media.
We need to start looking at the WHOLE TRUTH. Not just our perception of what we think we see.
Is it true?
Is it 100% undeniably the truth?
What else could be true?
