Warts And All

Written by Melissa D. Cope on Thursday, 14 July 2016. Posted in Perfectionism, Business Coaching, Main Blogroll Page, How to Change Your Life

Is your life being hijacked by your childhood belief systems?

Unless you have done extensive inner personal work, emotionally charged experiences in your formative years are likely still running your life.

If you don’t have the life you desire – are you struggling financially? Unable to maintain a long-term relationship? Hate your job? Feel like you are just treading water or going backwards? – then keep reading.

Thoughts --> Feelings --> Actions

Your life is the sum total of actions you have taken or chosen not to take.

Whether you take action or choose not to, is determined by how you feel about yourself and the situation.

How you feel about each situation is determined by what you believe – for example – do you feel like the world gives you what you need, or that you never win anything? Do you believe that you have support around you and people you can ask for help or do you think you have to go it alone?

The beliefs I am talking about become ingrained when we have extremely happy or extremely upsetting experiences in our childhood and teen years. If you have had even one emotionally devastating experience, it can affect every part of your life.

Were you repetitively told you would amount to nothing? Was asking for help seen as a weakness? Were you adopted? Did your parents get divorced? Were you overweight and teased as a child? Did you ask for help and get yelled at instead?

What are YOUR defining moments?        

So often we are told, just let it go and move on. But this does not solve the underlying problem. What we believe about ourselves, others and the world as a result of these experiences - remains.

It is the willingness to go into the places that we hide from the world due to shame and embarrassment that will change the direction of your life and transform struggle into ease and failure into success.

If you are tired of your status quo, ready to change your situation AND willing to look at yourself – warts and all – then get in touch today to find out more.
