Do you really think that all of our negative beliefs magically disappeared just because we grew bigger and started calling ourselves adults?
Who you ''are'' is based on meanings that are running in the back of your mind and, at the same time, you had no real say in what are.
This means that decisions and interpretations made by a 5 year old brain are affecting your life right now. It means that interpretations you made when you were 13 are still running your life to this day. Do you really want the limiting beliefs of a teenager running your life? Most people never sit down and choose who they want to be. This is what I am urging you to do! It is time to make a conscious decision about your beliefs.
and choose which interpretations of the world you want to keep and which ones you feel are no longer serving you. It is time to realize that you are the master of your universe. That your power as the interpreter of external events allows you to create any meanings you choose.
