The controlling force in each of our lives is our self-image, our core beliefs about who we think we are. What we believe is what we consider to be our authentic self, whether it is true or not, and it is that belief that sets the limits of what we can achieve. But those are limits we have set based on our past experience beginning from the moment we could hear voices and feel our mother’s emotions. Our core beliefs and self-image blueprint is set up by the time we are 8 years old, what we eat, the money we make, how we spend our time, how we care for our body, the relationships we have and our achievements.
The fact is that no matter how our behavior and personality may appear to others, we are always true to our self-image. We will not go against it. If our self-image tells us that we are supposed to be poor, and that we are never to achieve beyond a certain level of success, we will always be poor and we will never rise above the ceiling we have put over our heads. This is because in our hearts, to achieve more than we think we deserve would be going against our self-image. We are what we think and believe we are.
Our Awareness of our core beliefs and who we think we are is the beginning of change. When we become aware, take responsibility, ownership and consciously choose who we want to be, our life changes. We must erase the old tapes, the blueprint and choose new thoughts, make a new blueprint to have the life we want with new achievements, prosperity, relationships and well-being.
Who do you want to be? If you could (and it is possible) erase the past and create something new. Who would you be? What would your new blueprint look like?
Today is your life; if it’s not the way you want it to be YOU have the power to change it. Your awareness has the power to change the blueprint and course of your life. Every single aspect can be changed, you are worthy of your transformation.
