Today you get to choose whether to keep or change your beliefs! Yesterday’s prompt was all about uncovering those beliefs that we didn’t really know we had when it comes to wealth and abundance. Look back on your own writing and dive a little deeper today!
Choose 3-5 above beliefs (at minimum). Then, answer the following questions:
- Where did this belief come from?
- Is it ultimately true?
- Do you want to keep this belief or change it?
- If you want to change it, is there anyone you need to forgive (including yourself) that might have contributed to you forming this thought?
- How can you reframe this belief into a positive affirmation?
- Write out your new positive belief. Feel into it.
- Bonus: Re-read your new positive money affirmations daily for maximum effect.
Reflection, Thoughts + Feelings
I know that because I grew up in the foster care system, a lot of my beliefs come from that time in my life. For a long time, I didn’t think or believed I was worthy of love, deserving of a good life. I believed that I was destined for a life that had me struggling every day. The thing is though, I always had this core knowing deep down that life could be better if I could just win the lottery, marry rich, or some other way out that was easy and didn’t make me look at my own doings.
I mean who wants to take ownership of all the shit they’ve contributed to? And yet, when you are holding yourself accountable and acknowledging your contribution to these different moments in life, that is the moment you are willing to step out of being a victim.
My foster parents told me over and over again that I wouldn’t be successful, that I would be an alcoholic, and that I would be worthless and a few other choice words I will not repeat here.
I know that none of it is true. Of course, that doesn’t mean I didn’t struggle with alcohol, quite the opposite but when that realization hit I was indeed becoming my parents, I chose to change my beliefs.
In 2015, I stopped saying “foster kid reject” and instead embraced “foster kid success” instead. I worked through a lot of forgiveness towards my foster parents and my biological parents. Everyone does their best with what they know, no more, no less.
And every day you get to choose to keep or change your beliefs!
