Lisa Nichols talks about her process for enriching your self-worth:
You’re only going to go as far as you think you’re worthy. I can push, you can push, you can have the greatest product — but if you don’t feel worthy, you will work hard to sabotage that relationship.
You don’t know you’re doing it! You’re driving that guy away, you’re driving that woman away — because your self-worth says they weren’t going to stay forever, anyway.
I did this for six months, every single day.
It’s the “I see you” exercise.
You get in the mirror and you complete three different sentences.
1. The first sentence is you look in the mirror, and you say your name. You say:
_________, I am proud that you…
…and find seven different things every day to celebrate yourself for.
Seven different. Each day you can do the same thing you did before, but each day do seven different things to be proud of.
2. The second sentence is going to knock you down a bit, it’s going to come from your gut:
_________, I forgive you for…
…and cut the shackles to blame, shame, guilt, regret, and anger.
In that sentence, you cut those five shackles. Not the first day, maybe not the third day… but by the twenty-first day, by the thirtieth day, you’ll feel some relief.
Go back five years, fifteen years, twenty years… that thing nobody knows about, but you? Go ahead and cut those shackles. Cause if you can still think about it, it’s still in your energy space.
3. And then the third sentence is:
_________, I commit to you that…
Before you make a commitment to anybody else throughout your day, you make seven commitments to you.
Celebrate yourself. Forgive yourself. Cut the shackles.
And then, commit to yourself, before you commit to anybody else.
That right there — that right there, will begin to fill your cup up.
