-Hey Girl, Hey!

Based on all of your responses and messages this week- I know you ladies are out there killing it and you’ve come up with all types of super-creative ways to reset your reality. I am beyond proud of all of you and I just want to encourage you to keep fighting for your fairy-tales! I know a few of you have reached out stating that you want to reset your reality and you want to give yourself permission to live the big life that is in front of you but are struggling a little bit with the “how”. Maybe you’re not sure where to start or how to even begin to rewire your brain in order to believe that everything you want and desire is real, let alone obtainable!

Though I have had a chance to chat with many of you with regards to these questions, I am glad you asked them because they actually flow into this week’s challenge perfectly- so let’s jump in! Key 6 to excessive elevation is: Let go. This is really going to be your foundation for creating breakthroughs and moving forward in any area of your life. A big part of moving forward is learning how to ditch all of the heavy baggage that has been holding you back from experiencing whatever that next level is for you.

Ladies- I can’t stress this enough- your past does not define you! Anything that you have thought, anywhere that you have been and all of the failed attempts, temporary relations and activities that you have engaged in up until this point are simply just past experiences- they are what you’ve done, things you’ve faced and lessons you’ve learned, they are not who you are.

 – A woman who did drugs- was addicted to a drug that doesn’t make her a life time drug addict.

– A woman who fell in love and stayed in a toxic relationship longer thank she probably should have- settled for less than she deserved, that doesn’t make her undeserving.

– A woman who always wanted to be a CEO and who was always career oriented at heart (but grew up in a household where girls were taught to cook, clean and raise children) only knew what she was taught growing up. She grew up, got married, had kids and lost herself to her husband- later resenting him for her life circumstances. That woman, did what she thought was the right thing to do at the time for herself and her family- that doesn’t mean she’s not CEO material or her life is over. It doesn’t make her a bad wife- or mean that she can’t do the family thing, communicate with her spouse and start her own business simultaneously TODAY!

Placing titles on yourself and holding titles over your past experiences will eventually lead to anger and resentment. Which ultimately, doesn’t harm anyone but you. In order to let go and move forward, you have to learn how to go through the process of dealing with every item that you have subconsciously stashed in a bag over time (and have been carrying around as dead weight for years). You have to start deciding what you can let go of and unpack these things piece-by-piece before you will be able to move forward comfortably. This week we are going to help you ditch all of that heavy baggage and prepare you to start moving forward, with ease!

THIS WEEKS CHALLENGE:

 

Let Go


This week I want you to look at every situation that you were ever faced with as one of two things: A. either a temporary stepping stone which was meant to teach you something or B. a yield sign- which means you were given a warning to either “proceed with caution” or redirect yourself (and you made a choice to do one or the other). Either way, you went through everything that you went through in order to learn a lesson or to make a mistake in order to grow (so you could handle a certain situation in a better way- in the future).

This week I am challenging you to let go of every negative title that you have ever given yourself or placed over your past experiences. I want you to identify a current behavior that has been holding you back with regards to dealing with past experiences and change that behavior. We’ve outlined six of the most common mistakes that young women make with regards to dealing with past experiences and have suggested an action for you to take (this week) that will counter-act each negative behavior that you’ve been holding on to.

Grab the “This to That” graphic below that we’ve made for you to identify the negative behavior (that you catch yourself doing the most). Then take this week to practice implementing the counter-action!

Let us know what’s working for you and what isn’t! You’ve got this Queens! Let’s get you unpacked!

Six Most Common Mistakes Women Make When Dealing With Past Experiences:

You Dwell on the Past
Constantly thinking about the past will do nothing put keep you there. If you find yourself dwelling on the past regularly the best thing to do is to make a conscious decision to move on. Wear a rubber-band or a hair tie around your wrist for the week and everything you catch yourself having a negative thought about a past experience- snap it and force yourself to snap back into reality.

You Let Your Actions Define You
Past experiences are what you did, they are not who you are! Pay attention to your thoughts and the words that you allow to come out of your mouth. Let go of any negative title that you have ever placed on yourself or your past experiences by “re-phrasing” your point and making it past-tense. If you tend to call yourself a procrastinator- rephrase this point by saying I used to procrastinate. 

You Perceive Your Experience as a Mistake
If you view a past experience or mistake- you’re telling yourself that you did something wrong. If you find yourself thinking or speaking negatively about a past experience and allowing yourself to view it as a mistake- consider the experience at hand and ask yourself “what did I learn from that”? This will allow your brain to view this particular experience as a lesson instead of a mistake.

You Avoid an Experience All Together and End Up Resenting It
If you find yourself experiencing the same anxious, negative or overwhelming feelings about a past experience and chose to brush it off, think about something else, “change the subject” or just avoid it all together you aren’t really fixing anything. These actions are just giving you temporary relief (putting a band-aid) on the experience and it will keep resurfacing until you allow yourself to feel it, process it and move on from it. When you have these feelings about a past experience- set aside some time to be alone, talk through it with a girlfriend (family member, spouse, therapist etc.) and give yourself a little time to fully process those feelings-prepare yourself to move past them and that particular experience.

You Embrace Vivid Memories
If there is a past experience that you find yourself constantly reliving which triggers negative thoughts, emotions or beliefs you have to stop reliving it. Even if the memories are “good”- if the overall past experience is “bad” and it triggers negativity every time you relive it you have to begin to reject negative thoughts, all of those “good” memories and that past experience as a whole. You can’t hold on to the good pieces and let go of the bad experience. When these thoughts come up decide what OTHER positive memories- from a positive past experience you will replace them with. Then replace them!

You Beat Yourself Up for the Things You’ve “Done Wrong”
If you find yourself constantly looking at past experiences and over-analyzing every detail around the “what-ifs”, or the “if I could go back I would haves” chose to look at these things as opportunities for growth, instead of “mess-ups”. Start a Re-Do List and every time you recognize that you are beating yourself up for something that you have “done wrong” write down how you will “Re-Do” these things going forward. Start looking at past experiences as an opportunity to kill-it the next time around.
