Over the years of coaching - being and receiving, one of the things that crops up a lot is not being enough. It seems to be a belief many hold and allow to stop us in our tracks.
I know it does me. My immediate fears, concerns, anxiety all tend to come from this deeply planted belief.
I'm not good enough to....
Not clever enough to / for...
Not pretty - handsome - slim - muscly enough to
Don't earn enough
Don't own enough
Don't have the right clothes
Any of these ring true?
Then there's "I don't deserve ...." which comes from pretty much the same place as "I'm not good enough"
Obviously I'm not smart enough to have got rid of this belief yet!!!
When I get nervous or feel overwhelmed, when my confidence starts to ebb away - it generally is that little 'not good enough' voice.
How do we turn it off?
To start try this and see how it goes:-
Consider what your life would be like with that voice continuing to talk to you
Then what might life be like without it........
Which would you rather?
Face the voice, do those things, go head first into the fear. The voice fades away.
We are all enough.
