I wanted to share this quote with you as we head into the holiday week. It absolutely blew my mind.
“Seeing isn’t believing; believing is seeing” – Judy the Elf in The Santa Clause
I heard this while half watching TV this weekend… and this Tim Allen movie was on.
I sat up when the character said this. Because it is SO TRUE. And we go about it ALL wrong most of the time.
What do I mean?
What you believe, you will seek and find evidence for.
So, for example, if you believe that you’re going to fall down when you’re skiing, you will.
Or when you believe you’re going to pass a test, you will.
Just like when you believe you can’t lose weight… you won’t. Or you believe that the only way to get through a challenge in your life is to struggle, feel stress, or eat to avoid feeling uncomfortable or to ignore the pain. You’ll feel the struggle and stress and then you’ll eat. Because you BELIEVE that you will.
This is applicable – only ALWAYS. So, take a moment and check in with yourself. What are you believing and THEN seeing? And what are you waiting to see and THEN believe?
Try this on for yourself today. If you find that you’re waiting to SEE and THEN believe – I triple dog dare you to flip that script on its head for a week, a month or the entirety of 2021 and see what happens. You just might find out that you’re right.
Happy Holidays my friend. Be safe, loving, and kind to yourself as well as those around you.
You get to be the example of what’s possible in this life. And this is the best gift ever. Believe it and you will see it come to life.
