We tell ourselves who we are, every single day.
Have you ever heard yourself saying the following?
“You can’t take that class, it’s too much money.”
“You can’t book those kinds of jobs, you’re just not creative or good enough to get there.”
“Don’t even look at that guy, he would never notice you.”
“Just don’t be too loud or too much, keep it down.”
“One day you could maybe travel there, but there is no way you can afford it now.”
“Having all these kids makes it impossible to really do my job the way I want to do it.”
“I’m just not popular or pretty enough or skinny enough to do big things with my life.”
