New mindset- Merging The Landmark Forum with Mindhacking
Tonight I attended a weekly Landmark Forum seminar. Logged on late (integrity was slacking) and was tempted to watch Netflix instead. During this phase of change personal development prevails over entertainment. Certainly pleased mindfulness activity was picked over numbing background noise. It’s been several days since last blog post. My short MIA wasn’t due to writer’s block. In fact, I carry a notebook everywhere. Read whenever something causes an emotion to write that event down. Ask yourself what’s the story behind that reaction? Upset over a comment someone made? Doing everything alone and get upset no one helps? Answer that, then discover multiple underlining root beliefs. Those are the ultimate factors determining emotions.
Being as I’m going through this built-up pain, self-focused mental withdrawal and questioning basically everything in life. Content is not a problem! So what kept me away for days? Could easily attribute my absence on a new dog we rescued (see the cutie below). Nope. Not taking the easy way out on this one. I knew this post was destined to come next. No other topic was skipping the line. This one has been eating away at me for years! It deserved my full attention and some kind of resolution.
This past year I picked the Sloth as my spirit animal (subconscious decision…yep). Basically that’s the pace of my world lately. Lack luster motivation, fear of rejection and even fear of success. Life crumbled before my eyes in a short spam of time. In January of 2020 I participated in a 3 day Landmark Forum Seminar. Transformation learning at it’s finest. Thanks again Rob for sponsoring me. You’ve forever changed my life! https://landmarkforum.com It was an excellent starting place for recognizing my thoughts. Ever since then I’ve explored more about Metacognition. Can honestly say I’m still struggling with a blockage. Even people around me recognize this barrier. What’s holding me back from becoming someone great. I created a manifestation document in January and have done 1 item (this blog)! I know what I want out of life but freeze. How do you make that first step? Only thing I know to do is ask the right questions.
Mindhacking The 5 Why’s
First thing I realized is I lack motivation. Why is this? You’ll notice I’m a strong supporter of the “5 Why’s” (Mindhacking technique http://beavertownusa.com/index.php/2020/05/24/lying-in-isolation/ also used here).
Why am I not motivated? Because I feel overwhelmed
Why? Because I’m afraid to make decisions
Why? Because I’ve made many bad decisions in the past
Why? Because I self-sabotage any chance I have at happiness
Why? Because I’m not worthy of success *There’s my negative core belief
The Landmark Forum
Now that I have this core belief a positive loop can replace it. Time to introduce Landmark terminology:
The Limiting Conversations in my way are “I’m not worthy” and “I’m not successful”.
I am not that.
Right now, from nothing, who I am is determined, in-charge and worthy.
Actions to take next include: Launch website, Order Business Cards, Sell Handmade Facemasks, take courses on SEO and read.
It’s a step in the right direction. Does seem something deeper is missing. All ears if you have anything to offer! I’m tired of being unmotivated. I want to be successful. I have a lovely set of meditation beads on a necklace. Time to put this new positive loop to good use. Sending out these intentions to the Universe. As well as, make a commitment to creating a career based on my creative skills. With this new mindset I can finally start crossing off to-do items from app. A task as simple as creating a new email address sitting on list since May 15th. Seriously what’s the reason behind that? Facepalm enjoy needed for sure! As a way to hold myself accountable I will start posting completion messages in Discord chat ” one small step” board. Shout out to all the wonderful self care 101 members!!! Always someone around for when we need advice or a friend. Oh and meet my new spirit animal…
