Welcome to Daily Sunshine.
“What you believe is what you get.“
I was working with a client recently who is talented, quick-thinking and highly motivated, but also feeling miserable, frustrated and stressed.
It didn’t take much probing to discover that an out-of-date belief of “life has to be hard work” was causing much of the problem.
What we believe is what we get.
The thing is that our beliefs are like choices that get stuck in time. Once we’ve made them, instead of setting us free, they close the doors to other choices – to other responses.
That’s why even a so-called “empowering belief” is limiting. When things change, then even that old empowering belief could hold you back from your growth and expansion!
So if a “good” belief can do that, just imagine how much a “bad” one can do!
The great news is that we can change our beliefs.
They’re far from being set in stone.
There are techniques we can use to dissolve away the old belief and choose more flexibility and freedom in our life.
So if you catch yourself doing, saying ot thinking something that no longer “fits” for you today, all you need to do is catch yourself at this game and allow yourself to choose another option.

Beliefs definitely have the power to hold us back or move us forward.
For me, when I’m embracing a negative way of thinking I *know* that I have been triggered and have some important emotional need that needs attention. From that place, I can identify what’s happening and begin to make important choices that empower me. Remembering all the good stuff about myself, acknowledge myself and embracing my many blessings is always an important step to making that shift.
So, staying aware of our thought processes not only help us to make movement in our lives, it also helps us to discover more about ourselves and what we need.
