I am listening to a song by the 70’s band, Journey, titled “Don’t Stop Believing”. I’m realizing that today in my 50’s the song represents so much more than it did in my college years. Today I hear it as a mantra to NOT stop believing in all the greatness I have within myself. In coaching career women, I hear way too often stories they are buying into about themselves in thinking themselves as less than capable or competent in their positions, not (yet) ready to go for that new position that has opened up, not feeling accomplished or successful, feeling inadequate in managing their teams or meeting their numbers.
Today I hear that song as a mantra for the choice you and I have to believe differently about the stories the mind has thrown your way for way too long. So get out your 8-track, your vinyl or I suppose you can use Pandora, Apple music or Spotify, and pull up that tune. Turn up the volume and while you do, I invite you to entertain trying the following for at least 1 day. Just practice what this would feel like and see if it doesn’t create the best-freeing feeling for you.
Today I give you permission to decide that you choose not to believe the story the mind is telling you that makes you feel:
Less than amazing.
Less than courageous.
Less than empowered.
Less than confident.
Less than special.
Less than worthy.
Less than loveable.
Less than competent.
Less than beautiful.
Less than deserving.
Less than unique.
Less than good enough.
Less than the wonderous, intelligent, compassionate, can do anything, powerful, dynamic, engaging and special individual that those who know you know you to be.
You can choose to believe whatever you want to believe about yourself right this moment.
You just choose.
