365 Days of Transformation One Word at a Time©
Day #30 Improved
Quite often in marketing we see and hear the phrase “New and Improved!”
This usually means the manufacturer tweaked their product to improve its performance, reliability, or appeal. Sometimes the product is altered for safety reasons.
I often looked at myself as a “product” in the business world, especially when I was a job seeker.
It was all about performance, reliability and appeal. Making myself noteworthy to an employer. Took college classes, attended workshops, and targeted my reading material to put me on track to be successful in my job or to land a job.
Unfortunately I didn’t balance it enough with improving myself for myself and I burned out from attempting to please other people.
I could barely reach for my toothbrush, let alone my highest potential. My entire belief system went up in flames as I crashed from mental and emotional exhaustion.
This was one of the darkest times during my transformation journey; yet it turned out to be the best of times. Because I had to be willing to take a long and lengthy look at my “product” and investigate why I didn’t take better care of myself so I could reach my highest potential and get the Law of Attraction to work for me in a positive way.
Here are some tips on how I changed and am continuing to change my core beliefs.
Be open to change. Acknowledge and be willing to admit that there is always room for improvement in the mind, heart, body, soul and spirit. Even people who look like they “have it all” are making adjustments, constantly learning and staying in touch with life coaches or mentors.
The subconscious will resist change and cling to core beliefs. Being willing lets the subconscious know that “Hey willingness isn’t so bad or threatening. I guess I could be open to listening and taking a peek.”
READ “YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE”
Louise L. Hay wrote the classic book on transformation and restructuring one’s life. She writes about willingness and the steps to take to peel back layers of resistance. Hay has assisted thousands of people on their path to reaching their full potential daily.
DIG PAST THE SURFACE
Be willing to examine where your core beliefs came from. Question them. Is your belief system out of date? Is it based on other people’s beliefs and expectations? What emotions are attached to the beliefs?
ASK YOURSELF WHY
Why do you want to change? What will you get out of it? How will changing core beliefs affect your life? Why don’t you want to become new and improved and reach your highest potential? Many times feelings of unworthiness and fear stop us cold and prevent us from moving forward.
SHIFT YOUR PARADIGM
A new perspective changes the way you see things. The only way I was able to change my perspective was to ask for help from the CEO of the Universe. You may find other ways to alter your view point. I needed a supernatural power to give me the strength, courage, and wisdom to blast through core beliefs written in stone.
Accept that becoming new and improved takes time and energy. Refuse to rush the process.
Today’s affirmation is, “I am willing to be new and improved. I am capable of growing and reaching my highest potential every day.”
Transformation, one word, one day at a time.
Change your outlook.
Change your behavior.
When asked, “How are you?” answer with today’s word.
