I’m sure we all realize that personal transformation is a continuous process. There is no end destination. Once we make one change, then we find something else and then something more.
In my personal journey and being witness to others, I have come to believe that a key factor in our transformation is self-perception.
From observation, we start by looking externally to make our changes. How do I create more time to do the things I want to do? What goal needs to be achieved to earn that promotion? How can I improve my financial situation? Ultimately, if we REALLY want to go to the depths of these questions, if we REALLY want to make the changes to cause effect in our lives, this becomes an internal process.
What would I really want to spend my time doing? Who do I need to be in order to earn that promotion? What is my relationship to money and what needs to be different to improve my financial situation? Answering these questions lead to introspection and insights into yourself and what I find opens up, is how we perceive ourselves. Answering them honestly, will lead you to see where you may perceive yourself as lacking or fearful, in self-doubt or possibly just not good enough.
Have you been buying into age-old beliefs? What perception do you have of yourself that may be causing limitations in what you actually want to achieve?
The truth is, our reality is created by our perceptions which we live into and contexts that we set for ourselves. The way we perceive ourselves is very different to the way others see us. Our perception is just that, OUR perception and it can always be changed. Our internal judge knocks us around and we hinder ourselves – why not believe in yourself, wholeheartedly? What is stopping you from doing that?
Where will you start, and will you start today?
