“That’s the Story of my Life”…and How to Change the Old Tapes!

Take a moment to think about the “old tapes” that run through your mind. Here is a familiar one: “That’s the story of my life”. When we have this thought, it usually doesn’t mean that life has been wonderful, easy, happy and joyful. No. It usually means that life has been hard, and that things have always been lousy.

 

We do this with our health – “all the women in my family gain weight after 40”, and with our finances – “there never has been enough to go around”. You name it, the old tapes are there, and we usually keep whining about the same old thing.

 

I am working with a client who has so much going for her. I see her as an intelligent, attractive woman with a vibrant energy and a zest for life. She sees herself as a powerless little girl who is always expecting people to leave her. And guess what? She keeps attracting this scenario – over and over again. “That’s the story of my life”.

 

Our mindsets become our expectations. Our inner beliefs chart the course of our future. For some, there is the mindset of HOPE, for others, HOPELESSNESS. For some, there is the mindset of WEALTH, for others, POVERTY.

 

So how can we change the old tapes?

 

We release the old tapes by changing our inner thoughts and moving to a belief that all things are possible. Some people like to refer to this as “abundance”. The law of attraction states that which we focus on expands. To create more ABUNDANCE in our lives, we need to create more ABUNDANT THOUGHTS. To change the OUTSIDE, we have to change the INSIDE.
