Someone else played a role in where you are today.
Maybe it was your mom, maybe it was grandma, or even a school teacher.
Good or bad…these other people also shaped how you think about various aspects of your life.
Whether directly with their messages like….
Mom: Eat all of your food
Dad: You have to go to college to get a good job.
Teacher: If you don’t finish this assignment, you will fail.
Or indirectly with the example of how they lived their lives…
Mom being afraid to travel.
Grandma always clipping coupons.
Dad yelling at mom.
Each thing in itself doesn’t seem that bad, but hearing and seeing it over and over again, sinks in to your subconscious like a sponge.
You find yourself overeating…afraid of adventure…worried there’s never enough money…
I’d never really gave the word “worthy” much thought. I simply lived. What I didn’t realize is how much these little stories were shaping how I was living my life TODAY.
One by one, I started looking at my obstacles and began to connect them with a story and belief from my past.
How different would your life look if you felt 100% worthy?
I didn’t grow up having money. My mom was a bookkeeper and bartender doing what she could for her kids. At the time, I didn’t think too much about it.
My needs were met. I was mostly happy. Life was simple. Happy 70s!
As an adult, I was practical. I drove a Honda Civic, had a modest savings account, and lived responsibly. I had set the goal that by the time I was 30, I was going to have a convertible and my own house.
I was finally making good money as a software developer and decided that it was time for my convertible. I wanted a silver Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder.
One of my good friends had a passion for cars, so I took him with me to the dealership. I was completely ready to sign the papers…and their computers went down. They told me to come back in an hour.
My friend wanted to walk across the street to the Land Rover dealership, so we headed over to kill some time.
And there it was…
A used black BMW Z3 convertible someone had traded in. I fell in love.
I had never even considered a BMW. No one I had ever known owned a BMW. My friend talked me into it and I drove that baby home.
The very first night, I kept looking out the window of my apartment checking on my new car. I was so scared that something was going to happen to it.
I couldn’t fucking believe it was mine!
I had so many fun memories in that car! And a few years ago, I finally thanked my friend. Thanked him for showing me I was worthy of that car and all of the great things life had to offer.

- Who told you or implied that this was true for you?

No one has power over you unless you let them have power. It’s time to release those decade old stories that are blocking you from having all that you dream of!
