‘Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall’…Confucius
Whenever you make a mistake, STOP beating yourself up and verbally abusing yourself for not being perfect. This is madness, because YOU are the only one who is demanding this of you, no-one else, just YOU.
Remind yourself this is a just an opportunity to learn, to grow, to evolve to progress.
Ask yourself ‘what can I learn from this that is going to help me become stronger and wiser?’
Working on understanding ourselves better prevents us having to learn the same lessons again.
When you allow yourself to believe in superstitions you are basically allowing yourself to believe that areas of your life are being controlled by magical forces outside of you.
Now, here’s some basic psychology, in any given situation the amount of anxiety and stress we feel depends on the amount of control we feel we have over it!
Think about this, do you really think that believing that whether you are going to have a good or bad day is down to a number, a black cat, a magpie, a piece of wood etc. Or anything or anyone else for that matter, is a good thing?
Or would you rather believe whether you are going to have a good or bad day depends on the work and effort you put into it – it’s something you can directly influence?
Also, because superstitions are NOT based on facts that effected everyone – like gravity. This means that they will only effect or have power over the believer, which in turn makes total sense of the empowering belief, that you make your own luck – YOU really do!
So stop giving your power and control away, because you just might need it…?
