Sometimes my clients release a lot of verbal vomit, especially when things are not going the way they want them to go.
They usually end their verbal vomit sessions with a TOXIC BELIEF: I want to be normal.
This is their way of saying, the situation they’re going through is different and shouldn’t be happening.
This is their way of comparing (and despairing).
This is their way of indulging their mind, instead of working to create what they really want.
Let’s look at the definition of this word “normal.” According to the dictionary:
Normal: conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected.
In our society, normal is:
- Being overweight
- Being unhappy
- Being in a job you hate
- Being in debt
Do you really want to be normal?
This is why the belief “I want to be normal” is toxic.
You argue in your brain that what’s occurring shouldn’t be.
You argue that you want to be normal and fit in, but really you don’t want to conform to a standard, you don’t want to be typical.
Stop saying “I want to be normal.”
Instead, say what you really want.
Then get to work overcoming the obstacles on your path to creating it … and celebrate how un-normal you really are! JOIN ENOUGH.
