We are creatures of habit. The one thing that I have noticed people have the most trouble with is changing their mindset around personal value and worth. Tapping makes retraining our brain simple. It works as a powerful tool to release negative emotions, trauma, and beliefs. Tapping can also be used to install new ideas and beliefs that can improve any area of life. In episode we will explore five different ways to retrain your brain to improve your self-worth.
Drop the Comparisons
The problem with making comparisons is we tend to compare our weakest points with somebody else’s strongest point. It’s like getting mad for not being a marathon runner when you’ve never run a day in your life. If something isn’t your strength, it isn’t your strength. You can’t expect to become an expert overnight. You’re more likely to spend years trying to change the situation and put yourself on a level with somebody else. Seriously, now you’re just wasting time, which you could be better off using elsewhere.
Identify Where Things Aren’t Working
Why are you feeling insecure? And this can be a critical question to answer as it gives you clues into places where you’re not feeling validated or good about yourself. A little investigation can use these points as markers to indicate areas where you might need work.
Put Worry to Rest
We love it when other people have a high opinion of us. This becomes a problem when their opinion becomes higher than our own. If you’re spending more time concerned about what someone else is thinking, you’re cutting yourself short. Instead, focus on checking in every once in a while with those around you to see where you stand. Then spend the rest of your time paying attention to doing the things which create more value and self-worth into your own life.
Understand No One is Watching
Sometimes we become self-conscious because we think everyone around us is watching us. We can even begin to think every move is under judgment. The truth is, very few people are paying attention. And for those who are, do they matter? The only one who should be watching you is you. What you think of your actions is what counts.
Put in the Work
In the end, nothing is going to change unless you’re the one to change it. Worrying about your self-worth gets you nowhere. It’s up to you to put in the effort.
Emotional Catch and Release Method
- Identify the feeling/problem/challenge.
- Rate the emotional impact of it on the 0-10 scale. 10=Bad.
- Breathe an essential oil like wild orange.
- Feel into the feelings, tell the story, and do the tapping.
- Check back in and rate the emotional impact again. The goal is always zero.
