Are You Lying to Yourself?
Are you telling yourself a lie?
I have been thinking a lot lately about the topic of self limiting beliefs.
Let me tell you a story. When I was a young girl (maybe 5 or 6), one of the grown ups in my life commented on my singing voice while I was playing outside. I heard her comment to my mom that she never thought I would be able to hold a tune because my singing voice was so bad. This crushed my little girl heart. 💔
Decades later, and I cannot perform in small groups without freaking out and I have never been brave enough to perform solo ever. Since that day, I have told myself that I am a bad singer. I bought into this limiting belief and have convinced myself it is true.
Here's the thing though. I'm actually a pretty good singer but I have been lying to myself for YEARS, I find it hard to believe the truth. Imagine what I could accomplish if I told myself true, positive things about myself instead of this negative lie?
Think about your own life. What lies have you believed about yourself that just aren't true?
