Identity, in BTL language, are the names you call yourself. Your identities are rooted in your little voice, friends. Most humans identity is rooted in the names others call them, oftentimes, a long time ago. This is a case of mistaken identity. You are not the names others call you. Fact. Take a look at your “I am’s,” and give them a hard rinse from deep within your worldview. Rid your mind of the negative names that came from others or from you listening to your untrained, little, negative voice. Change the channel. Go up a level and listen to your core.
I am. I can. I will. I do.
Repeat your deepest held beliefs in the form of a positive identity. Rinse and repeat until it’s squeaky clean. You and I tend to play the negative tape on repeat and forget the positives when put under pressure. Normal. We are all filled with fears and fueled with love. Focus on the later without dismissing the former.
I am overwhelmed and I am an overcomer. I can panic under pressure and I can perform when pressured. I will not make it through this mess and I will be made better in this mess. I do not know how this story ends and I know He who does know.
I am an overcomer. I can perform when pressured. I will be made better in this mess. I know He who knows how the meta story ends. I am. I can. I will. I do. Rinse and repeat. Develop a series of mantra’s that keep your mind focused on your highest, best self. Flip channels when your brain starts to go dark and deceive you. My go to mantra’s are “keep working and Live hard, love harder.” These mantra’s and not just words I mutter to myself. These mantras are meaningful because they come from my core and are powerful because of my belief in them. I still have fears, uncertainties, and tons of doubt. I still waver, stumble, and fall. My core keeps giving me the strength to stand again.
I am. I can. I will. I do. Keep working. Live hard. Love harder (Thanks, Teeks)…
