Hello – it’s me.
I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet…
I don’t believe in myself.
I don’t think I can do hard things.
I don’t even think I KNOW anything.
I think I’m fat, unattractive, and clumsy at conversation.
You keep telling me I’m not – but – there I am.
Can you change me? Evict me?
Maybe. I don’t think so – because I am what you BELIEVE.
Just because you THINK you are not me – doesn’t mean you BELIEVE you’re not me.
And as long as you don’t BELIEVE in that other person you keep SAYING you are?
I’m staying right here.
I’ll whisper in your ear everytime you gain a little success, make your first sale, get your first distributor under you, create your website, write your blog posts…attend your first event…
Will you continue to believe in me?
I don’t want to leave – it’s comfortable here.
I never have to step up or out of my comfort zone.
It’s safe and warm here.
I don’t have to do hard things because I have an excuse.
So – let go of those high-falutin' dreams of yours and stop thinking I don’t exist.
That’s what I want.
I want You to continue thinking and not ever truly BELIEVE in HER.
SHE will banish me and make me small.
SHE will DO the hard things day after day and even make the hard things not so hard because SHE enjoys them.
SHE will revel in what she’s accomplished and pile those accomplishments up against me and start to BELIEVE in herself.
SHE will hang out with the people she strives to be like and speak their talk and do their walk.
SHE will take me out and make me uncomfortable under the light.
SHE will ask her mentors to look good at her work and turn criticism into education.
SHE will ask questions and make herself vulnerable to criticism.
Why do you THINK you want to BE her?
That’s ok – you can THINK what you want – just don’t BELIEVE.
I’ll be right here.
You are not what you THINK you are –
you are what your subconscious secretly
BELIEVES you are.
