Our beliefs are often deeply rooted within us. From the depths of a breakdown that saw me lose my marriage, my businesses, my whole life as I knew it, I had no choice but to ask myself:
What led me to this moment?
How did I get here?
Where on earth do I go now?
The answers to these questions were found in the tangled web of beliefs that I was stuck in. That’s the odd thing about beliefs.They can be the things that hold us back, keep us trapped, make us fearful – but ultimately, they are our own creation. We spin our own web of beliefs.
Freedom from our own limiting beliefs is not easy. That shouldn’t stop you from trying to cultivate freedom and peace in you body, mind and spirit. It’s a worthy work in progress.
If you are an 80’s baby, influenced by the 90’s and infused with the stories shared in the lyrics of the new millennium, you’ll know that Eminem infamously cleaned out his closet. He shook out all of his repressed thoughts and unsaid resentments and made radical honesty about his life and his experiences his super power.
Upgrading your consciousness and being comfortable with that level of transparency is a process, but it can also happen in an instant.
The moment I decided to take full accountability for myself and my life was the moment I swung the doors of my closet open and let decades of untold truths and tangled lies come flying out.
When you give yourself permission to ‘clean out your closet’ you stop holding so much space for the people, places, experiences, thoughts, beliefs, habits, tendencies, values, attitudes and bullshit that holds you back—and you make space for things that you consciously choose for yourself.
Taking accountability for yourself and your life requires you to become decisive.
It requires you to take the lead.
When was the last time you made a decision for yourself without asking for input?
Without considering the opinions of others?
Without sharing your plans and looking for validation before you pulled the trigger?
A feeling of freedom and peace comes when you trust yourself.
Trusting yourself begins when you take the lead in your own life. When you give yourself permission to take decisive action.
It's easy to blame others for unhelpful belief systems we carry. To stop playing the victim to our circumstances, we need to get into the habit of taking full accountability for ourselves, our beliefs and what we allow to influence us.
The images and words we take in daily are powerful. You can leverage this and use it to your advantage, or you can let it erode you.
Start with doing a mandatory clean up of the accounts you are following on Instagram.
This isn’t about simply deleting people that rub you the wrong way or have a sour sense of humour.
It's about taking full accountability for who and what you allow to influence you and inform your view of the world on a daily basis.
*If you don't have instagram, you could do the same task on facebook or with email subscriptions etc.
