Life Is Yours to Create!

by Nina from MindGourmet


The lens of our beliefs

Our surroundings, relationships, financial setup, career, and happiness are mirrors of our belief system. We see life through the lens of our beliefs.

As long as we hold a certain belief we keep creating the same situations with different people over and over again. Our world is a reflection of our mindset.

Sometimes it can be hard to uncover our core negative beliefs. They are like blind spots. Gido compares us trying to understand our beliefs, and therefore our lives, to watching a TV program with our face glued to the TV. You actually see nothing but moving colors. This is why it often is so helpful to work with a coach.


Accepting our magnificence

It is often easier for us to accept what we perceive as our flaws than to accept and enjoy our magnificence. We’re conditioned to look at what’s not working and we’re used to making ourselves small.

“If your friends would talk to you the way you talk to yourself you would kick them out of your life within weeks”, says Gido.

When we finally give ourselves permission to see and own our magnificence, life shifts.
