The Earth Is Flat – Wrong
A rocket will never be able to leave the Earth’s atmosphere.” —NY Times, 1936 – Wrong
Fruit Flies have a life span of 24hrs – Wrong
The moon is made from green cheese –
There was a time that many people believed that the world was flat. And if you sailed past the horizon you would fall off the world. Looking back its almost laughable. People actually living their lives thinking this way.
There are tons of misconceptions. You can see a whole bunch here .
The interesting thing is that at one point a misconception was a reality for someone. As far as they were concerned it was the absolute truth. A truth that would be defended with every ounce of strength.
So what is reality? We take all the information we have available and create a logical assumption out of it. At one point we looked up and saw the sun, moon and stars moving across the sky. We made the assumption that the universe revolved around the earth. We made our truth based on the information we believed in. Galileo’s improvement to the telescope and insights into what was happening in the heavens showed that truth to be in error and brought us to a new reality.
Back To You
You have created a number of limiting realities for yourself but they are not necessarliy the truth. You might have had an experience in your life where something didn’t go well and you decided to create the reality that you Just Can’t.
Here are some popular ones.
I cant remember names.
I’m not good with numbers.
I can’t lose weight.
I’m not creative.
I’m a failure.
I’m not good with finances.
I’m a horrible parent/spouse/friend.
What are some of yours?
But the real truth is that you can change your reality at anytime. You just have to bring new insights, awareness and beleif.
Pick a small limiting beleif that you currently have. Maybe you have the belief that you are not creative.
1. Take as much time as you would like and draw a face.
2. On a scale of 1-10 evaluate you work.
3. go to http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-draw-a-face
4. Take 20-30 min to work through the 5 min video
5. On a scale of 1-10 evaluate you second face.
If you thought you are not artistic you will now see a measurable improvement. Your previous reality is now false and you have a new reality that shows you can be artistic.
Many of your limiting realities just need the right tools and insights to take you toward empowering realities that lead to the realization of your full potential.
Pick something that is holding you back and find the tools and insight that will help you move forward.
