Too often when things don't go to suit us, we find blame in things outside our control. We find myriad reasons to make excuses for our faults and bad habits. Our bad luck, our genes, our parents all get blamed for the problems in our lives. Unfortunately, as we avoid responsibility we begin to use those excuses as truths about who we are. Theses excuses become limitations to making changes and overcoming old labels.
How often have you labeled yourself? If you identify yourself as "lazy", "fat", having a poor memory: being"a shopaholic", a klutz or any other negative label, you are limiting yourself. These limiting labels can be the basis to self-actualize that belief. Soon you don't move because you are "lazy, don't lose weight because you are "fat" or over-spend because you are a "shopaholic".
So what can you do to change this pattern? It's time to stop accepting negative labels. If you want to change old habits that are holding you back, consciously remove the old negative label and give yourself a positive affirmation. Create a positive affirmation that resonates for you. For the negative label of laziness perhaps you could create a positive label like " I am capable and accomplish my goals." For the negative label of being fat, a new label could be: "I make good choices to create a strong, healthy body." For the negative label of poor memory, a positive affirmation could be "I live mindfully and remember well."
Know that how you think creates who you become. So work on removing negative labels and create positive affirmations to create a more positive life. A qualified hypnotherapist could help guide you through this process and do a hypnotherapy session to reinforce the new positive labels. Remove negative labels, create new positive labels and BE WELL.
