All that 'negative self talk' really is draining, isn't it? And, it will drive you crazy! Even though you've tried every alternative method possible to 'stop your insanity,' you still come back to the same place. It sucks. You've spent lots of money, and 'did the work.' You felt like 'you got it,' only to find yourself repeating the same patterns of self-sabotage and limiting behavior - angry at yourself and feeling like crap. It can be costing you a shot at love, loss of friendships, or advancement in your career. Most of all, you're restless, out of sorts, and in physical and emotional pain. Stop It! Here's a funny video featuring Bob Newhart. Sometimes it's good to laugh at ourselves to offer a new perspective and 'lighten up.' Approval Here's an opportunity to give yourself new dialogue...

BUST YOUR SHACKLES

BUST YOUR SHACKLES When you come down to it, you've imprisoned yourself for years EVERY TIME YOU SQUASH YOUR THOUGHTS, FEELINGS OR ACTIONS, YOU'RE IMPRISONING YOURSELF.  It is one thing to be kind, considerate and thoughtful.  Quite another to give people what they want to hear at your expense. YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANOTHER PERSON'S FEELINGS.  Are you the type of person who thinks about how every word you say is going to affect someone else?  So much so that you squash your real feelings and words? DON'T GET CHARGED WITH A BUI™   I've termed a BUI™ - Being Under the Influence™.  As we continue to discover and weed out our negative self talk, we want to find out where these thoughts, words and emotions are coming from.  Are they habits developed from your family during early childhood?  A 'gift' from the nuns?  Cultural?  Wherever they came from, let me tell you something...... they're draining! BE YOURSELF - COMPLETELY.  There's a huge freedom in...

Your Evil Twin

We all have an Evil Twin.  Just when you think you're on the right track, up pops that dark side of you that just wants to fuck with you.  The Evil Twin who holds you hostage and has you squirming in your own shit, causing you to spin out of control with negative overload. So how do you get a grip and start to loosen the grasp?  You become AWARE.  Awareness is the key to change.  The recognition of your evil twin is the very thing that will empower you to get out of your own chaos.  Insert the catch phrase, 'get out of your own way.'  Maybe someone has used that phrase with you before? Every time I hear it or say it, it holds a bittersweet tone.  Probably because I've heard it so many times, lol.  Nowadays, instead of wincing, I offer a chuckle and half hearted smile.  At this point it's better to go with humor.  Seriously, what...
