An exercise that I came across recently proposed by Tony Robbins left me blank.
I could not think of any of the beliefs I’d held my entire life, such as ‘If I start watching a Netflix series I won’t stop until I reach the end of the season’. You might think it’s brutal to say that this, my friend, is not and empowering belief. It is simply a loop of giving yourself, your time, to a feeling of initial thrills followed by numbness. And we wait for the next peak moment of the story to make us feel again.
‘If I start reading a book I won’t stop until I finish reading it’ sounds more like a sound, empowering belief. Doing what’s easy once again proves to be on the negative scale of impact, the one of disempowering beliefs. What are your empowering beliefs?
