More often than not, the things you tell yourself and any unhealthy beliefs that you’ve ‘bought into’ are untrue.
At times, we all experience these ‘cognitive distortions,’ but the trick to not giving into these negative beliefs, is learning to recognize the lies you tell yourself, and training yourself to replace them with positive, more realistic thoughts.
However, retraining your mind isn’t always easy.
That’s because your brain will try to keep you in your comfort zone.
It will underestimate you, hold you back, and try to fill you with doubt.
It’s difficult to let these beliefs go, but continuing to believe them, will drain you mentally and emotionally – and will stop you from being your best self.
So here is a list of lies you need to stop telling yourself!
1 – I’m Not Good Enough
No matter how positive or confident you are, this thought has undoubtedly crossed your mind at one point or another.
This lie can invade any aspect of your life, and it can lead you to believe that you’re not good enough – physically, mentally, or emotionally – breaking down your self-worth.
Believing that you’re not good enough or smart enough to do something, often makes you not even want to try, because you don’t see the point in the inevitable failure.
It will stop you from putting in the effort needed to reach your goals.
