You decide what you give meaning.
On the playground, I found out a boy in our class liked me. Another schoolmate turned to me and said, “Why would 𝘩𝘦 like 𝘺𝘰𝘶?”
I wondered what it could possibly be. My hair, my face, the clothes I wore? I settled on what made sense to me - the fact that I stuttered.
I decided that this boy wouldn’t like me if he got to know me, because then he’d realize that I stuttered, and that was the worst thing about me.
I carried this story with me everywhere I went. I grew up with this story.
It loomed over me like a dark cloud.
I made every no, every rejection, every side sneer, every negative interaction 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐧 that I was incapable, unworthy, unintelligent, unlovable - all because I was a person who stuttered.
You’re the same. You have something that you lean towards when you’re not getting your way. You have something that you’ve decided makes you unworthy, incapable, unintelligent, unlovable.
Your 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 is charged with emotion. It affects your relationship with your family and your relationship with money. It’s what is blocking you everytime you go to hit the next level in your business.
𝐁𝐮𝐭 𝐢𝐭’𝐬 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐚 𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐲. And you deserve to break free from the handcuffs of its hold on your life, your finances, your business, and your freedom.
You are the author of your story.
And it’s time to close that chapter that says you’re not good enough, and change the course of the whole damn book.
