All you need is three steps to change your life.
It is that simple!
You can use this method to change your thought patterns. You can use it to change your future behaviors. You can use it to stop playing small, and start shining your light! But most importantly, you must use it to pull yourself away from the negative and destructive thoughts, behaviors, and automatic habits so that you can be more intentional in your actions and in your beliefs.
You will use these three steps to rewire your brain and create new neural pathways which will drive your behaviors and your actions. These three steps will help change your unconscious beliefs and guide you to question the negative beliefs that bubble to the surface. You get to control your mind. Remember, the brain is malleable. It is like a ball of clay. You get to change it, if you want. The clay is in your hands.
I want you to remember that the thoughts that you have are real, natural, and commonplace, especially for women.
I have not talked to a single woman who has not felt the stickiness of her limiting beliefs.
When I interviewed women on the premises of this book, every single one of them acknowledged not just one, but several sticky floors that have impacted them over the year, from childhood to the present day. Many initially rejected the invitation to participate because they felt they were still STUCK in their sticky floor, and with nothing to offer - and these were C-LEVEL WOMEN!
They reflected on years worth of negative self-talk, fear, toxic relationships, and not knowing their worth. I’m here to tell you, that you don’t need to spend years STUCK in the sticky floors. It isn’t your fault that you have these sticky floor thoughts. But it is your responsibility to face them head-on.
But how can we leverage those thoughts to power our actions to break free from the sticky floors? Let’s dive in. Below are the three steps you need to take to break free from the sticky floors and bust through the glass ceiling.
We have to be able to name what we are thinking, feeling, and doing (or not doing!) that is holding us back.
You must move your unconscious belief into your conscious mind. Here is how:
Talk with a friend or therapist
Go for a walk/fun in nature (without music!)
It is when we are quiet that we can identify what is holding us back!
Get curious about your sticky floors!
Is this true?
Is this helpful?
What is the worst thing that could happen?
What experiences in my life so far, have led me to have this belief?
Shift your mindset by making minor tweaks to your thought process.
Instead of: "It won't work out." to "But what if it does?"
Be open to the possibility that it just might work out for you!
Because you don't know what will or will not, workout!
But my dear friend...
What if it does???
