Even if others don’t finish what they started or don’t ever reach their goals, will you still allow yourself to achieve your dreams?
To more effortlessly cross the weight-loss finish line, it’s to your waistline’s advantage to understand how the varying tribes in your life stop you from moving forward, albeit mostly on a subconscious level.
As kids, we all got conditioned to let others go first: parents, elders, siblings, teachers, authority figures, etc. Part of that showed us how to be polite, while another part simply taught us how to delay gratification. This was particularly true around mealtimes.
Your parents may have expressed to you that ‘people don’t always get what they want’. And to further drive that message into your brain, they may have laid a bit of guilt on you and told you all the sacrifices they made on your behalf and all of their own dreams and goals that got put on the shelf because of you. That guilt trip may have even been laced with religious undertones that emphasized to you that only those worthy enough would receive what they are asking for.
If you were spared all of that during your childhood, some part of you may still be resistant to achieving your goals, because your parents never had an easy life, had lasting happiness, or seemed to reach their goals. Therefore, the subconscious part of your inner child that is still trying to earn the love of your parents and prove to them that you are just like them on multiple levels unknowingly sabotages your own efforts to succeed in the present moment, especially when you are just about to cross the finish line.
In addition to your parents, be they amongst the living or not, there is the whole host of other characters in your life in your home environment, workplace, and social networks, who consciously and unconsciously block you from reaching your goals. As mentioned in other blogpost episodes, your desire to change anything about you and your life sends ripples throughout all your interpersonal relationships, which causes people to act out in bizarre ways as they attempt to keep the status quo.
Despite whether or not others take any steps to reach their goals, EFT tapping sets the stage for you to repattern your mindset to feel worthy enough to allow yourself to safely and swiftly move forward on Your Weight Loss Discovery Journey. By continuing to EFT tap, you are consciously choosing to easily let go of any guilt or negative messages laid on you by others. And as you give yourself permission to put yourself first, getting what you want becomes the reality you’ve been dreaming of and working towards.
