“I’m not getting enough likes on Instagram. If I can’t grow my business like my coach did, it means there’s something wrong with me and my product and I’m unlovable and I’m bad at business and I’m never going to succeed and I’m never going to be able to take care of myself and achieve my goals and help others.”
That’s what my brain said to me yesterday…
Your brain is 40,000 years old and the ones who survived back then were the ppl who were constantly looking for danger.
Constantly looking for the tiger in the bushes and for poison berries.
Your brain still looks for the worst case scenario to try to keep you alive.
All humans have this worst case scenario software, even Oprah and Beyonce and Eckhart Tolle.
And you don’t have to get rid of it. You just have to be more conscious of it so it doesn’t control all your decisions.
The more often you can label it as “worst case scenario thinking” the less power it has.
Say, “My brain is going to the worst case scenario, it’s trying to protect me but I’m actually safe right now.”
And then redirect to a more positive thought like, “It’s possible, I’m going to be okay.”
“It’s possible… that my business will be successful even though I’m not doing it exactly the same way my coach did it.”
“It’s possible… that my job interview will go well.”
“It’s possible… that I’ll find a loving partner who’s hot and who also wants kids.”
If you feel overwhelmed, write out all the negative thoughts that are making you feel like shit.
Then to write out neutral or more positive thoughts.
Write, “It’s possible…” then fill in the rest.
Worst case scenario thoughts are not a problem.
As you bring them into consciousness, you loosen their hold on you and have more free space to imagine and design the ways to easily achieve your goal
