What Do YOU Deserve?

Leave a comment

When working with clients (and even with myself), I find one of the biggest blockages to successfully achieving our goals is that we do not truly believe we deserve them.

Many of us seem to suffer from what I like to call, Who Do You Think You Are Syndrome.

For example, you say, “I want financial freedom” or “I want to be a millionaire.” But then you start thinking:

“Who do you think you are? You’re no Bill Gates!”

“Who do you think you are? You’re not smart, creative, well connected, etc. enough to become a millionaire.”

“Who do you think you are? Your family never had money.”

OR

You want to lose some weight, but then those thoughts creep in:

“Who do you think you are? You’ve always been overweight.”

“Who do you think you are? Your whole family is fat.”

“Who do you think you are? You can’t exercise 3 days a week.”

Somewhere though our life we have created a belief that we don’t deserve to be wealthy, healthy, loved, happy, have a job we enjoy, and so on. So we dream big, but never achieve that dream because after all we don’t deserve it (or so we tell ourselves).

The best way I have found to start dissolving this belief is with a little exercise designed to remind us we are deserving of EVERYTHING we desire. Here’s how it works:

Every day for the next 2 weeks (or longer) set a timer for 3 minutes. During that 3 minute period write down everything you think you deserve, from the littlest molecule of oxygen to $100,000,000. Write down anything that pops into your head, don’t think about it and do not dismiss it. It came to you for a reason. You may find this exercise a little tough the first few days, especially if you have a significant case of Who Do You Think You Are Syndrome, but I assure you it will get easier each day.

To help you get started here are a few ideas:

  • I deserve to be wealthy.
  • I deserve to be loved.
  • I deserve to live in a safe neighborhood.
  • I deserve healthy food.
  • I deserve the time to take care of myself
  • I deserve to be happy.
  • I deserve a Ferrari.
  • I deserve respect.
  • I deserve to treat others as I want to be treated.
  • I deserve career I love.
  • There are literally 1000s of things you deserve, take the time each day to write them down. See how creative you can get. Have fun, enjoy taking the time for yourself, and most of all BELIEVE you deserve all good things!
  • Until next time have a happy healthy day!
