When you do pick it up the next morning, read it out loud to yourself one more time, and then put it back on your pillow. That way, you won’t have to remember to do it, it will be “in your way” at the beginning and the end of your day. Do it for three to four weeks and watch it change from being a truth to becoming a belief.
You may have to do some “after-the-fact” training for a while. Robert Mcgee, in The Search for Significance, calls it “The Trip In, and The Trip Out.”
When you find yourself feeling fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of punishment, guilt, or shame, take the trip in and find out what lies you are saying to yourself that are creating those feelings. Then, pull out those “tapes” and replace them with the truths you are learning. The more you do it, the more embedded and automatic the truths become.
The world will not stop hammering you with the old lies. They are on TV, in magazines, in the movies, and in clothing, car, and cosmetic ads. You will have to fight, and you will have to fight hard.
The hard work of the “fight” is worth it though. You will work hard either way. You will either work hard learning and re-learning the truth, or you will work even harder trying to survive what the lies do to you and the people you care about around you.
Sometimes fighting is good.
