Do you ever wonder why, even though you want to make changes, it doesn’t happen? Do you find that even though you set the intention for the day to do something different, for instance, eating healthy, that at the end of the day, you just didn’t follow through? Why is it so hard? The reason is actually quite simple. Your self-esteem. You may ask, what does self-esteem have to do with eating healthier? Let’s talk about that.
Your self-esteem is the person you conceive yourself to be. It’s how you see yourself. The actions you take will depend on how you see yourself. The way you see yourself is not always clear; because, sometimes, buried in the subconscious mind we have secret beliefs about ourselves, the world and others. These secret beliefs are a tape playing quietly in the background dictating how we act and react. It’s actually quite easy to see how you conceive yourself by looking at the actions you take and the results you take. For example, a person who procrastinates, who eats junk food, or who constantly overspends may be acting from a place of low self-esteem which could have a belief of unworthiness, insignificance, or not-enoughness. A person who takes time to prepare healthy meals, is an action taker and gets things done, and honors their budget is taking action from a place of higher self-esteem, knowing they are worthy, significant and are enough.
Whether you believe it or not, you and every other person on this planet is significant and worthy of all the goodness there is in the Universe. It’s hard to believe with over 7 billion people on the planet right now, that you and every other person is important. The choices you make matter.
How do you find out the place that you are making your decisions from? Look at your actions and results and ask yourself, “What belief would I have to have about myself to make the decision to…” Stay quiet and listen for the answer. It will come to you. Once you determine this, you can change the way you take future action.
For example, if you are struggling with making healthy food choices, ask yourself “What belief would I have to have about myself to make unhealthy food choices?” For the sake of the example, the answer that came to you is feeling unworthy, an indication of lower self-esteem. So for future decisions you can ask yourself, “What if I felt worthy, what action would I take?” You will know the answer. If you take actions from the place of feeling worthy (even if you are pretending you feel that way) or a place of higher self-esteem, you will make different choices that are in the best interest of your health and well-being and you will get different results. At some point, if you stay consistent with this, because you are acting from a place of higher self-esteem, you will begin to believe you are worthy and this will carry over to every area of your life. You will see the results you want in your health, career, money, and relationships.
When I worked in corporate America, I always heard that if you want a promotion, not only do your work well, but dress like to people in the position you want. If you want to be in management, dress like you’re already in management. It’s the same concept. Take actions from the place of who you want to be. Using this technique will not only get you the results you want, but you will get them much faster.
