Welcome to Jim Phillips’ Wednesday Wisdom for July 25th! Each Wednesday, WU World Changer Jim Phillips will share some mid-week wisdom for you to ponder and embrace!
“When you deny your Self-expression, you become the head cheerleader for the opposition.”
Have you ever considered that each time you repeat to yourself the limiting beliefs you hold about yourself, that you have joined the chorus of naysayers, those people who would hold you back? You become the head cheerleader of the opposition; Anything and anyone that would deny you the full experience of who you truly are.
We all have people in our lives that will or have told us we don’t have this or that skill, we are not good at communicating, we have nothing to share, we have no credibility, we are not smart enough, blah, blah, blah. And quite honestly, some of these people feel they are benefitting us by saving us from disappointment and embarrassment.
However, more often than not, these limiting thoughts and beliefs they so willingly share, are what holds them back from experiencing and expressing their true Self. Now they want to hold us down with those same beliefs, and they will, if given permission to do so.
Giving someone permission to hold you back is not done through some formal statement, it is an unconscious agreement made when more value is given to the opinion of someone or something outside of your Self.
You buy into the thoughts that rattle around in your head that say you don’t have what it takes to accomplish or be what it is you have a strong desire to be. You deny your truth and therefore limit the experience and expression of your truth.
“Self-expression is simply allowing that which desires to be expressed through you to be expressed.”
There is a song within you that longs to be sung. As you realize you are leading the cheers that limit you, change them to the song that celebrates you, the song that longs to be sung through you, and sing it loud and clear.
See you next week for my Wednesday Wisdom for August 1st!
