We all do this. The world wasn’t a pedestal set up for you to magically make your way to the top while ridding a winged unicorn over a rainbow. Unless magic is how you define courage. The possibilities of how you get in your own way are endless, but the further you go in your pursuit of health, wealth, and relationships within your time that you have here in this life…they could be endless. Literally, there could be endless possibility and potential to what you have created and can create in the future. Regardless of how you look at it or what you find yourself capable of…you’re going to have to get out of your own way. Here are 7 betrayals you’ll want to acknowledge, confront, and challenge.
You aren’t a member of Grit Gym. Not kidding, and here is why.
2. What do you believe you are?
The winner can still win at showing the world what a loser they believe they are. Get what I mean?
I know a guy that is real good looking, great with people, charismatic, very smart, very good athlete. You know, just kind of always lands on top. Except that he thinks he’s a loser. So what’s he do? He goes out and proves it by selling drugs and getting caught with enough to put himself away for a couple decades. He’s from an affluent family, and has all this going for him. What’s the deal? In his mind, he believes he’s a loser. He’s actually a winner, but wins at showing the world what a loser he is. He doesn’t know that, doesn’t have a clue, and is bound to repeat his actions over and over until he confronts and challenges this belief.
Let’s say you’re a winner and believe yourself to be the fat girl. If you lost a bunch of fat you’d have sabotaging your own beliefs about yourself. Because in your mind, you’re the “fat girl”. You’ll prove yourself correct by staying or getting fat.
Let’s say you don’t think you deserve to be in good shape. What do you suppose would happen? You probably find ways to sabotage your own health. Live with constant stress, stress eat, bring stress into a relationship to cause more stress, create some cheep drama to get more stress, get a tobacco addiction to try to calm the stress that your subconscious actually desires, feel guilty about the tobacco in order to get some more stress, start practicing quoting over and over because you don’t actually want to stop the habit, more guilt and more stress. See what I mean? It’s a vicious cycle. All because of what you believe yourself to be, and validate with the story you create in your own life all to give yourself what you think you deserve. Makes a lot of sense right?
Reality can be a harsh territory, but further you go, the stronger you get, and the better everything EVERYTHING gets.
What you believe yourself to be is most likely to be the outcome of the life you create. You will create a story in reality to validate an inner ‘truth’.
3. Fear of not being enough
6. Priorities aren’t in order
7. Spending more time doesn’t improve quality or increase value
Decisions…make them and figure it out later. If you’re taking a multiple choice test, what are you supposed to do when you start second guessing? You’re more likely to have answered correctly the first time. Adding time to the decision doesn’t make it better, it makes it worse and it’s a waste. Write the book and release that sucker before it’s perfect. Use the next go as a ‘re-write’.
Make the decision now, not later. Do not add time to try and increase quality or value. Doing so only dampens the value and quality
Workouts don’t get better by adding time. “Oh did you go to the gym for 2hrs today?” Glad you’re proud of yourself for being a dipshit.
You can multiple time by covering more distance.
You can multiple time by going faster
I think you should do both
Get out of your own way and start succeeding at what you want in this life. There’s no scarcity, there’s nothing you can screw up, and if you do, well, learn from it, but do it full speed with all that you have to give.
