Continuous thoughts form beliefs, continuous beliefs form actions, continuous actions form habits, and habits make up your life. You are what you repeatedly do, and it all begins with a thought.
What if, throughout the day, as 1000’s of thoughts come and go, you continue to come back to the thought:
“I am whole”?
What if you make this thought your north star, your guiding compass. The thought that brings you back to truth, even when bombarded with chaos, doubt, confusion, uncertainty, etc.?
Never mind what you believe or how you feel about yourself right now, just be willing to create space for the thought:
“I am whole.”
What does this mean?
Does it mean you are perfect? No.
Does it mean you will not make mistakes? No
Does it mean you will never experience doubt, confusion, uncertainty, etc.? No
Does it mean that everything will always work out as planned or expected? No.
What does it mean?
It means that regardless of what life throws at you or what you may feel about yourself, in this moment, you are open to seeing yourself differently. You are open to seeing yourself in a way that is reflective of who you want to be and where you want to go. You are open to believe that you have the answers inside of you, that no matter how deep or far away those answers feel…they are always there.
You trust the growth process. You trust that at some point, what you feel and believe will align. Because as you practice this thought, it becomes a belief, then you take actions based on that belief, then you create habits based on those actions. Ultimately, you create a life that is reflective of the thought that you are whole.
As a Certified Personal Development & Transformation Coach, I recognize that my clients are whole, unique, and resourceful. This means that if I approach a client as if they already have the answers, it changes everything. Now, it no longer becomes about trying to find out what’s wrong with them or what they’re not doing right. There's less focus on finding the problem and what they don’t know, and more focus on strengths, capabilities, and what they do know. And even deeper than that, they are creating a life based on who they want to be and where they want to go, rather than creating a life based on trying to fix a problem.
Seeing yourself as whole reminds you that you carry the answers, even if you have to dig a little deeper. It reminds you that what you want is possible.
You begin to think in terms of possibilities and opportunities. You begin to think in terms of growth and elevation.
And soon old phrases or beliefs such as:
“I’m going to fail” becomes “I can figure it out.”
“I can’t do this” becomes “I can try”.
“I’m not good enough” becomes “I’m growing. I’m learning.”
The brain starts to look for ways to make it happen, by first learning to reframe or rephrase what you’ve always told yourself. The brain does this because it’s responding to the new thought you’re practicing and it’s looking for ways to align that thought with your beliefs, actions, habits, and daily life.
At first, the shift is subtle. You’ll catch yourself thinking an old thought and you’ll correct it by using slightly different language, which allows a new perspective to come in.
As you continue to build upon this new thought, it will get stronger and stronger, to the point where all you see is possibilities and opportunities. To the point where you not only KNOW that you have the answers, but you TRUST those answers.
Seeing yourself as whole becomes not just a thought to be practiced, but a life to be lived.
