"You're like that because of your past." "You don't deserve that." "You can only be successful if..." "You need me to succeed.".... Have you ever heard this or anything like it?
We tend to take on the stories people tell us about ourselves, and start to believe them, potentially damaging our dreams, our hopes, our future. We begin living as if we truly can't be successful without them, or we have to have them in order to be successful.
"What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create." -Buddha
It is so important to be aware of your thoughts, and especially the ones that come from other people. Once we take on their thoughts of us, then they can easily become our own and project our future.
I am really working on being more mindful of absorbing the thoughts of other people and their thoughts making a reality for my life.
Please join me in this journey of creating our own reality, and avoiding the thoughts of others if they are not serving us in any way.
