Often, we tell ourselves that it
takes a certain type of person to achieve the things we want in
life, and that we just don't have what it takes. We come up with
all kinds of reasons that we can't do what we want, or be who we
want to be. We get stuck in old mental patterns, or sanskaras, and
believe that this is just the way life is.
In today's episode, Cate and
Grace talk about all the ways we disqualify ourselves, and how we
can break out of these limiting beliefs and outdated patterns to
design the person we want to be, the business we want to create,
and the life we want to live. You don't have to be a certain kind
of person to do the things you want to do. You don't have to wait
for someone else to give you permission or encouragement. You can
have it all, but you have to decide you want it, and change the way
you think to get it.
So tune in to find out how you
might be limiting yourself, and how you can change to unlock the
person you want to become next.
What you'll get out of tuning in:
you are never too old (or too young) to make a change
you've written off, and why you should reconsider
to break free from your sanskaras and design the life you
- You are never too old to make change! In fact, it might actually
be easier to learn new things because of the years of wisdom you
have to learn from.
- Sanskaras are like ruts or grooves in neural pathways: they are
unconscious replays of the same mental pattern. By shifting those
thoughts, you're already breaking out of those grooves, you're
already making progress.
- Get into a group that's propelling growth, and that can be your
support system for your own personal evolution.
- Don't wait for someone else to tell you to do something. Whatever
you want to do, whoever you want to become next, you can do right
now, without someone else's permission.
- The more complex you become physically, mentally, and
emotionally, the simpler your lifestyle becomes, and the more you
can experience bliss and joy.
