THOUGHT VIRUSES AND VITAMINES
Our ability to quickly adapt to changing circumstances and reinvent the way we live and work has recently been put to the test. How easy was it for you to move forward into rather unknown territory? Did you confidently do the first step trusting that you’ll find a way, or did you hesitate? If the latter, it might be worth checking whether a limiting belief or ‘thought virus’ was at play.
A belief is something which we – consciously or subconsciously – assume to be true. As we allow it to spread, it affects our thoughts, feelings, behavior, and results. One of the most dangerous viruses is ‘I’m not good enough to …’ aka as ‘I don’t have what it takes…’ or ‘I can’t do this…’ If we tend to follow that kind of thought pattern, maybe it’s time to challenge ourselves.
Imagine what would happen if we replace this virus with a vitamin and tell a different story. ‘IF I REALLY WANT, I’LL FIND A WAY. I CAN GROW THROUGH THIS.’ – sounds like a far more empowering narrative that increases our sense of self-efficacy, resilience, and ability to successfully navigate through challenging times.
Which thought vitamins would you recommend to cultivate?
