“I’m worried.” “I’m scared.” “It’s not going to happen.” What we tell ourselves comes true. So why do we keep saying these things?
To avoid disappointment?
If we don’t expect to get something, then we won’t be disappointed when it doesn’t happen. So it’s easier to tell ourselves it’ll never happen or we don’t deserve it.
Does not being afraid make us face the unknown and the uncertain?
Fear is a sneaky thing. It tiptoes in with a few doubts or points out a few new things we need to learn, and the next minute we find ourselves frozen in fear and uncertainty about our ability to proceed.
Has fear become a habit?
I have a friend whose conversation is filled with “I don’t know how.” “I’m scared to do that.” “I’m worried.” One time the statement was even that she was worried that her dog was worried.
And of course, what you tell yourself becomes your life experience.
Your words become a fulfilling affirmation
As this self-doubt increases, her ability to function lessens. She truly cannot learn new things. She truly cannot figure out things. She shuts down at the mere idea of learning something new and is so filled with the belief she can’t do something that she truly can’t.
What we tell ourselves becomes our reality
“I’m smart, I’m beautiful, I’m clever, I’m …” If you feel it, you will be it. You can change your life by changing your thoughts. What thoughts are you giving yourself every day?
Your Inner Garden
We grow our life in our inner world, our inner garden. We can sow ideas of doubt or seeds of encouragement. We can sow seeds of hope and expectations. We can cultivate crops of anger and hatred or love and empathy. It’s our choice. Our inner world. Our crop – to plant, to care for, to feed and to harvest.
Our choice. Our seeds. Our harvest.
Begin by noticing
Notice your words. Notice your thoughts. Are they positive? Or negative? Consciously begin to correct your thoughts and words and turn them into positive affirmations.
Notice the results and keep making changes
Notice how worry affects your body – your back, your muscles, your headache. Physical manifesting begins in your mind, and it can be changed simply by changing what you put in your mind, what beliefs and thoughts you plant in your inner garden.
If you’re not getting the results you want in your life, go work on your inner garden and see what you’ve planted and what crops you’re growing and what weeds you need to pull out.
Do you have a fear of exploring, of trying something new?
Life is one big constantly changing cycle, so the more you learn to adjust and adapt and roll with the changes, the more positive will be your life experience. Exploring something new is like opening the door to take a breath of fresh air. It offers a new view, a new perspective, and new opportunities. Change is super good!
