Limited Beliefs: SHOULD
by Wendy, Retirement Enthusiast/Coach
Please consider eliminating this word from your vocabulary: SHOULD
When you use the word SHOULD, ask yourself why you think you should.
Maybe, just maybe, there are valid reasons why you should. That's good, Do it!
Quite often, however, someone else told you you should, so your subconscious takes it as fact -- until you are aware enough to stop.
It is often someone else's idea that you should do this or that -- not your idea at all. If it were your idea, you'd DO it instead of thinking you should, right?
Catch yourself whenever you think SHOULD/SHOULDN'T.
Is this a fact or something that got stuck in your subconscious, a limited belief?
When you hear yourself say or think you should do something, think instead:
Do I truly believe this, or did someone else implant it in my mind?
You might decide you genuinely want to do whatever. But if you truly don't care, why keep that guilt of "should" on your mind?
P.S. Don't tell someone else they should or shouldn't either — that's your belief, not theirs — you are passing on a limited belief.
Don't Should on Anybody - Don't Should on Yourself Either.
