What A Fucking Awesome Week Episode 5

awesome

Hey guys, welcome to another episode of “What A Fucking Awesome Week,” a weekly segment where I share my experiences and review the steps I’ve taken to get closer to achieving my goals and becoming the best version of myself. I had many highlights this week but the following 2 contributed the most to my growth and prosperity.

 

Understanding negative self talk and positive self talk – In her book Feel The Fear…And Do It Anyway  Susan Jeffers describes a time when she tested one of her students on the power of positive self talk. She got the student to first tell themselves that are worthless and weak. The student was instructed to tell themselves this over and over.  Jeffers than got the student to hold their arm out and try to resist her while she pulled it down – she managed to pull it down without too much effort. Jeffers than got the student to tell themselves over and over that they are strong, powerful and worthy –  she struggled to pulled the arm down.  I wanted to test this out on a conscious level to understand what is happening here so I went to my local grocery store and told myself if you get served by the pretty lady don’t buy smokes because she will think less of you and when you talk to her you will become self conscious and awkward.  Low and behold it worked.  I didn’t buy smokes and when I talked to her I became self conscious and awkward. Likewise when I went to another store to buy smokes I told myself that I don’t care if that pretty lady likes me or not I’m buying smokes. I don’t need her to like me and if she doesn’t like me because I smoke than that’s her loss.  When I talk to her I will be confident and entertaining and she will be interested in me and laugh at my stupid jokes. Yep, you guessed it… it worked. It just took more of an effort. I know many of you are like I used to be – you find it easier to believe your negative self talk than your positive self talk because negative self talk is easy and happens without much effort.  Susan Jeffers provides many powerful tools and techniques on how to correct this in her book so I highly recommend you get yourself a copy.

Smashing limiting self beliefs –  This week I submitted three assignments and smashed a limiting self belief that two was the best I could do  – before that I believed one was the best I could do. If you believe what you are currently doing is your best I’m here to tell you your capable of so much more.   Every time I sit down to study I tell myself the following: I am a smart, able, productive, well organised student, so whenever I study I know that I am more than capable of submitting two or more assignments a week.  I use this mantra in all areas of my life. For example, before I go and talk to a high quality woman I will say to myself: I am a deadly handsome man who gets women and understands female attraction. High quality women are desperate to meet a guy like me so whenever I talk to them they cannot help but be attracted to me.  I used this mantra to help me smash a limiting self belief that I held about eating in front of strangers. The old me would become nervous and unsure of myself at dinner parties and the like.  Now I jump at the opportunity. I used my mantra to help me when I attended a  meetup with a group of strangers for a dinner party the other night: I am a confident, self assured, lively, out going person who enjoys meeting new people, so whenever I attend an event people are interested in me and become energized being around me.  It worked beautifully.

 

Until next time, have a fucking awesome week!
