Self Identifying and Self Appreciation

As I journey along and weigh in to what it is I have accomplished over the years it tends to come with the baggage I have collected.  Has that happened to you?  I hear voices in my head when I work at speaking my own truth or creating a bio that is positive and uplifting.  Most recently, I was meeting with a person who is trained in NLP and it took her all of about 30 seconds to determine some of my triggers and deeply embedded psychological messages.

I took her advice to heart deeply and began thinking of myself as someone I am looking at from the outside.  If I was to meet me how would I describe me and my accomplishments?  How would I look to myself and this is what I have decided:

" Cynthia is a self-made entrepreneur, who for the last 15 years, has been motivating and inspiring people from a stage and is a natural as a host of momondays.  She is an accomplished speaker sharing time with groups, large and small, who listen for encouragement and support.  Cynthia worked in office administration and dabbled in community theater while raising two children, as a single mother, until 2007 when she decided it was time to go university.  In less than seven years she completed a BA honours and a master’s degree focused on people, specifically the aging population.   She has traveled the world, for study and pleasure, and brings her gifts to the stage.

Cynthia is a certified group fitness coach and personal trainer and she is trained as a healthy eating and weight loss coach.  In 2017 she set her sights on racing and between spring and fall of 2017 she completed six cross country races, three triathlons and a half marathon.  She shares her mostory whenever she is asked.  There is little she has not done, seen or overcome. "

I choose to like me and choose to be proud of my accomplishments and my life just as it stands.  I hear voices that say "don't get too big for your britches" or "you think you are so smart" as they are said with venom and to put me down.  These voices no longer carry weight with me.  I am letting them go.

How about you?  What voices are you hearing that keep you small and insignificant?  What past programming speaks to you and causes you to second guess that desire to succeed?  Think about it and, if you care to, I would love to hear from you!
