Is your nose growing?
What lies have you been telling yourself?
It happens to all of us, the dialogue we have in our heads. The negative words that we believe about ourselves. We may not share them with others, but they direct how we respond to life's circumstances.
Phrases like: "I'm not good enough", "strong enough", "smart enough", "pretty enough", "talented enough". You fill in the blank for your lie.
The lies about not being enough of something are rooted in comparison.
When we are busy comparing ourselves to others, we are not being wise. When we compare ourselves with others, internal lies will keep growing inside us, controlling more and more of our thoughts and shaping who we are becoming.
If we are honest with ourselves, we are comparing either to unfairly tear ourselves down, or artificially build yourself up. This is not good.
The only way to combat a lie is by speaking the truth into it. It is the truth will set you free from the bondage of the lies you tell yourself.
How do we begin to tell ourselves the truth? To change the way we think? Begin by acknowledging that you have been believing a lie; then ask yourself some questions to discover the truth. Asking yourself questions helps your mind choose a different pathway in the brain.
When you look at your life, what can you be grateful for?
What ways have you grown and developed over the last year?
What personal goals have you met this year?
Who defines whether you are enough?
Imagine all that could be possible if you stopped the lies immediately and replaced them with the truth.
What other questions could we ask to discover the truth?
