Integrity With YourselfSep 20, 2021
What happens when you are out of integrity with yourself?
For most of my life it was easy to keep my word to others, to show up on time, to do what I said I would do. The area where I struggled, even after I started coaching, was being in harmony with myself. I would commit to launch my services, or to start my podcast or to take better care of myself. They seem like little things, but if you don’t have the discipline to keep your word to yourself it has a profound impact on your subconscious mind.
One of the biggest challenges for entrepreneurs is believing in themselves and their value they bring to the market.
While I was helping others to believe in themselves and stop underestimating their own value, I was destroying my value within myself.
I claimed to want better health, to be holistic in my teaching about the importance of mind, body and spirit working together. Yet I was eating mostly crap, drinking way too much diet soda and not really exercising. It took a tragedy to wake me up to the lies I was telling myself.
Not only have I doubled down in seeking to grow my business, but I have doubled down on being in harmony with myself. My morning routine now includes exercise and a mile walk. I have stopped drinking alcohol, diet soda and am only drinking water. I am still unsure of what the best diet is, but I am committed to consuming less calories than I burn and working to consume less sodium.
Our subconscious mind wants to work with us, but it can only use what we feed it.
If we tell it stuff and then we don’t follow through, it loses interest and won’t continue to help us achieve excellence. When we are in harmony with our desires, it will empower us and give us more than we bargained for.
I want to always be in integrity. No excuses, only growth. I forgive myself for mistakes but I learn from them and use them to make myself better.
