What are your beliefs about you?

Depending on how you were raised you have created a story about yourself that you subscribe as true. Most children seem to grow up with a set of limiting beliefs and the struggle begins there. The core values that are instilled in sets the path of your journey through life. The good news is that at anytime you choose you can shift in a totally new direction by developing a new set of beliefs. Its called choice. The environment that you are raised in will undoubtedly have a tremendous influence on what you believe about yourself. Change is not only possible,it is inevitable. The question is, who is going to design it?

Becoming the movie producer of your life?

If Hollywood were to produce a movie about your life  right now, what would it be, action,drama,suspense,thriller or a comedy? Let me then ask you this, what would you like it to be? If you are the producer and you are playing the lead role  in the story of your life you get to write the script. That’s what your life is. Regardless of how you started in life, you get to decide what direction it will take. Self motivation plays a big part in this but lets face it no one is going to do it for you. Self motivation is the propeller, the emotion, the internal energy that drives you to act powerfully.

Re writing the script to your new movie

Your life like a Hollywood movie is rarely ever crafted in one draft. The script is done and then changed and modified until the producer feels confident in the final outcome. Every day you make a series of choices and decisions that will ultimately make up what is your life. Like the script writer you get to sit down and review it and change it in any way you feel like. After all its your movie. If self limiting beliefs are dominating your thoughts then you will be more inclined to think I can’t, I’m not good enough, I’ve never been successful at anything. Your imagination does not know the difference between what is real and what you imagine to be real.

Perfect example is you go to a real movie. You see the actor get cancer or get shot and die and if its done right you feel that emotion of sadness and have compassion. In reality the actor playing the part shows up in the next movie that comes out. But how did this happen , he died in the last film. You have the ability in your imagination to create yourself being or doing anything and this will drive you to create that in your life.

Its no different than Michael Jordan having imagined himself sinking the winning basket thousands of times, even after he was cut from his high school basketball team in his junior year. By creating a new vision of what is possible he became arguably the basketball player who ever lived.

The three basic forms of vision

There is being on fire which is a positive state of mind aligned with what you want the desire to achieve those goals.

There is apathetic which is being in a neutral position which means that things aren’t bad enough for you to change and they are good enough for you to settle. This is a dangerous mindset because you are experiencing pain but not enough to change.

The third form is one of self destructive which is you having a negative vision like worry and this sets you up for self sabotage in anything you try. You start and then pull back for some reason. Low self esteem and poor self confidence will cause you to self destruct anything good that comes into your life. Ironically many people don’t believe they actually deserve to be happy or successful.But not you, right!

Make a decision to commit to the process

Are you living your life or are you just following the path of least resistance? Stop blaming and criticising others for where you are and what you have or don’t have. Take responsibility and make a decision to change NOW! The last thing you want to happen is to get to the end of your life and have a whole stack of regrets waiting for you to face. Commitment is really just a decision to do,be or have …no matter what.

Go write that new script of your movie now!

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” Johann Wolgang von Goethe. No one has the right to tell you you can’t do it. Failing is falling down 7 times and getting up 8 , being a failure is falling down and not getting back up. Its your choice and its your life. Become the hero who saved the day or scored the winning goal or saved their community from disaster. Create the boldest vision that you can possibly imagine and use self motivation to drive you to the top of the mountain. Believe in yourself because after all, you are worth it aren’t you?
