In a world where anyone can supply you with false information (either knowingly or not), it’s worth looking at how we do this all the time…to ourselves.
Our minds work as a filter to incoming information but are distinctly biased and prone to giving us false information based on belief rather than fact.
We see this most obviously in the external world but forget that this is also a symptom of our inner world and of being human.
Your beliefs about yourself are constantly giving you false flag information about your capabilities, your potential and your choices.
If you believe you are ‘not good enough’ for example, this belief will give you all kinds of disinformation to work with and you will fail to see counter evidence that might suggest that this wasn’t in fact, true at all.
As with most things, there can be elements of truth in even the most outlandish of beliefs or deepest assumptions – but it is our power to be able to examine these for truth rather than throw the baby out with the bathwater.
What is true right now? Is it true that you are 100% not good enough as a human being across the board in this moment?
No, that’s too wide.
So look for the truth – when, specifically is it true that you are not good enough? Own it, look for stuff you can work with.
I’m not good enough to do my job to the best of my ability when I haven’t set enough time aside to prepare well, when I haven’t had enough sleep, when I’m saying yes but I mean no, when I don’t have enough boundaries in place, when I don’t take a break and push myself beyond my high performance zone and go into the distress zone…these are all examples you might be able to relate to.
Now flip it – so if it isn’t 100% true all the time, there must be times when you ARE good enough…
When are you good enough?
Place your time and energy here, on working to do more of the things that reflect you as ‘good enough’ and place less of your mental and emotional resources into the space where you are not ‘good enough’.
Then you know you are working with true data, instead of paying attention to false flags, disinformation and confusion.
