They gave me a lot of comfort and inspiration about the sometimes trivial challenges I experienced when I’d step outside my comfort zone.
One of my favorite quotes read something along the lines of: “You never get enough of what you really don’t want… until you do.”
When I express that quote, especially my marketing/copywriting clients, I usually leave out the part after the ellipses.
The whole purpose for telling people this quote is to bring up the never-ending need to release old, limiting beliefs to help them achieve the success they REALLY want.
This one simple quote so easily brings up people’s story… you know; the reason why they haven’t succeeded in manifesting their goals…
…Usually their financial goals.
Stories are addicting.
It’s so easy to want to tell your story, even at the expense of accomplishing what you wholeheartedly desire.
I’ve always found it fascinating why people talk about the opposite of their dreams so often and perpetuate a mindset that keeps the finish line always at a safe, untouchable distance.
So the question is:
How can you change your story to bring yourself closer to the dream you want to experience, rather than pushing it away by talking about what you really don’t want?
Here’s one… Every time you hear yourself telling your story, immediately course-correct your words to voice the new script you want your life to reflect… as if it’s happening RIGHT NOW!
I don’t care if it’s NOT actually true.
If you want to see a new storyline reflected in your experience of reality, you have to change your story.
When you can really feel The Truth in your words, before it manifests, your life will change in amazing and unexpected ways.
P.S. Telling a new story usually feels incredibly uncomfortable. When you have the pleasure of experiencing this discomfort, smile… the change you want is happening.
