You look in the mirror and stare at what you hate.
You scroll through Facebook and compare yourself to fashionistas & fitness models.
You step on a scale & damn near implode because the number was +1 since yesterday.
You scan through Pinterest and think you’re a shitty mom since you can’t make those super creative cupcakes.
It happens every day. Beautiful, strong, intelligent & powerful women are veiled by their perceived “flaws.”
These “perceived” flaws can destroy us from the inside, out. They can extinguish our beauty, deteriorate our strengths, stifle our intelligence & suppress our power.
I was once a sufferer of excessive self-doubt, self-loathing and lacked true self-worth. It stifled my personal growth and prevented me from opportunities that were presented to me. After reading these 3 books, my outlook completely changed and I opened myself to love, abundance, success & true belief in myself.
Remember that day when it all started? Ya know, not being accepted into a clique in elementary school or being a little “bigger” than the other girls? Well, that was me. My athletic genetics weren’t exactly admired as a youngster. ‘Bigger” automatically meant “fatter” and that led to a lifelong battle within myself.
Can you relate?
We live everyday comparing ourselves to each other, to magazine covers, to other business owners. How could we possibly maintain a positive attitude about ourselves? Well, it’s a practice, a daily practice and to discover some of the fundamental ways to start this practice we have to learn live from within.
These 3 books will allow you to emerge, right now.
#1. “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay
Release yourself from your perceived flaws, first.
This one was HUGE in my shift! With this book I grew to learn the importance of positive self-talk & the importance of treating my body like a trusted friend. I leaned about trusting my inner voice, overcoming fear of letting my true feelings out, releasing my worries about growing older and prepared to willingly receive. Louise Hay taught me confidence in expressing my creativity, accepting change as a natural part of life and so much more. This is the game changer. I also learned the importance of the language I was using with MYSELf and its impact.
Do you honestly think it is just laziness that is keeping you from your successes? I think not. It starts with how we see and treat ourselves. Get this book.
#2. “The Four Agreements – A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Don Miguel Ruiz
So how do you unleash from your relentless comparisons to others?
It starts with eliminating self-limiting beliefs. These are the things that have you starting out your sentences with, “I can’t,” “It’s just that,” “I wish I could,” etc. This book provides us with 4 unique principles to help us on our journey towards creating love for ourselves and creating real, raw personal happiness. When I adopted these 4 principles, my life dramatically changed
The Four Agreements are:
“Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.”
“Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.”
“Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.”
“Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.”
These principles will change. your. life. Right Now.
#3 Letting Go – The Pathway of Surrender by Dr. David Hawkins
If it wasn’t for this book, I would have been trapped in the belief that “I am my credit score,’ and would have faltered every time plans didn’t go as intended. Do you ever find yourself shuttering at your bills, debts o& bank accounts or lamenting when you didn’t get that job?
The idea of “Letting Go” describes a humble and effective means by which to let go of those limiting beliefs to grow towards Enlightenment and become free of negativity. This book provided me with an outstanding practical technique by which to remove my inner blocks to happiness, love, joy, success, health, and, ultimately, Enlightenment. The surrender that Dr. Hawkins describes can be done in the midst of everyday life. The book is equally useful for all dimensions of human life: physical health, creativity, financial success, emotional healing, vocational fulfillment, relationships, sexuality, and spiritual growth.
It doesn’t matter what age you are, you can terminate the limiting beliefs that have been decreasing your self-worth. Bring these books in to your life and you too can open yourself to all that is intended for you. Had I never been led to these books, I would have never been able to be the accomplished athlete and entrepreneur I am today.
