A woman was visiting her in-laws and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries. Later, her husband noticed her sitting in her car in the driveway with the windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head.
He became concerned and walked over to the car. He noticed that Linda's eyes were now open and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Linda replied that she had been shot in the back of the head and had been holding her brains in for over an hour.
The husband called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from her head. When they finally got in, they found that Linda had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head.
A biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head. When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She initially passed out, but quickly recovered.
What was your reaction to this story? Whether you believed this story, or not, whether it made you laugh or immediately doubt it's authenticity; regardless of your reaction, let's assume this woman BELIEVED that she had been shot in the back of the head, that her brains were falling out and that she was holding her brains in her hands.
The mind is a very powerful tool and we can use it to create fear just as easily as we can create success in our life.
Many people have limiting beliefs that hold them back from their goals, dreams and aspirations. We tell ourselves:
The list is endless. If your mind has the power to make you believe you are "less than" isn't it just as possible that your mind also has the power to believe that you are "more than" you ever dreamed possible?
What do you want to do? What do you want your life to be like? What kind of relationships would you like to have? What kind of career would you like to have? What amount would you like to see in your bank account? Ask yourself these questions and then write down your answer. If you find that you have a negative answer to the question you are asking yourself, how can you create positive answers?
How can you change the brains falling out of the back of your head to a simple wad of dough? This woman believed her story to be so true that she passed out. Are you walking through life in a state of wakefulness or do you "pass out" every time you think about creating success in your life?
Your limiting beliefs are all in your mind. If you have not yet found a way to rid your mind of its limiting beliefs, is it because it is impossible?
