209 You Need a Reality Check
Hey, this is Anne with your Coaching on the Go.
I’m not calling you a liar here, but some of you, and this could be you, you don’t have a realistic idea of who you really are.
You are telling a story that is exaggerated and unflattering about yourself, and it’s time to get a reality check.
This week I’m talking with you about the stories you tell, how you think of yourself, how you see yourself, and how to shift that story and that momentum to benefit you, to work on your behalf.
If you have a tarnished view of yourself, you don’t have a realistic understanding of who you really are, and you keep telling that story.
You can’t get out of that rut.
I have some clients I’ve talked to where I have to remind them that their view of themselves is warped, that they have to go back and really take a clear look at who they are, because their feelings about themselves and what they’re capable of is way beneath how they really are.
When I see you come into the community, I see a great being of the universe.
I don’t care where you are… I always care, but I’m saying I don’t care about the limits you’ve put on yourself, or how you decided a certain scenario that you just experienced looks.
I see your overall greatness, your possibility, who you really are as a being and how resourceful you can be, no matter where you are right now.
Today’s coaching is about you seeing yourself, really taking an audit – yes, another audit – you taking an audit of how really great you are as a human being.
No matter what you’ve gone through, you’ve developed additional expanded capabilities as you’ve gone through that, and the very things that are challenging for you are the very things that make you bigger and better.
When I was depressed – I was depressed one time in my life, a depression – I couldn’t see myself.
I really couldn’t.
If this is where you are right now, or if you don’t have a realistic view of yourself, I highly suggest asking five people at the minimum, that you have respect for, to tell you about yourself, to tell you about what they see in you, and you’re constantly getting feedback from people.
So when people tell you things like, “Wowl, that’s easy for you,” or “You’re great at that,” or “You are really helpful,” or “You’re very loving,” you get to take that to heart.
If you have a hard time hearing good things about yourself, or if you let compliments bounce off of you as soon as they get delivered, I want you to start making a list of the things you hear about yourself and notice about yourself that are really powerful and incredible and wonderful.
This week we’re just talking about how to shift the way you interact with yourself internally, the way you think about yourself, the things you say about yourself, the things you say about your history, the things you say about how you’ve been in the world, and take an audit of those and start shifting them in your favor.
So, that’s your coaching for today.
Do you see yourself realistically, or do you see yourself as lesser than you really are?
A lot of us are really tough on ourselves, so I would say most people don’t really see how great they are, and it’s time to be your biggest cheerleader.
Have a beautiful day.
