You are the filter through which you see

You are the filter through which you see.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Everyone has their own perception of reality.
You and I could go through the exact same situation at the exact same time and have completely different versions of how it all went down.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All the things you’ve gone through in your life have helped create the filter through which you see.
Every experience, everything anyone has ever said, every book you’ve read or movie you’ve watched.
You are a sponge soaking it all in.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your brain then filters what it deems important to keep for survival.
This is different for everyone and changes based on what you’ve previously held onto.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our brains are predisposed to hold onto negativity for protection. It’s a way of ensuring we have the street smarts to avoid harmful situations and ultimately survive.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The amazing thing is you have the ability to alter your filter. You have the ability to choose what you want to hang onto.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Is it a lot of work?
Yes
Is it totally worth it?
Abso-fuckin-lutely ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I have 2 spaces for private coaching and I’d love to help you work to change your filters, break down any limiting beliefs holding you back, create a killer business strategy so you can really elevate this year.

This isn’t for just anyone... I only work with ambitious women who are ready to do the work. If this sounds like you, message me for more info. 💫

Being in New York this weekend with my family has been so amazing. Thankful I’ve created a life where it’s possible to take last minute trips like this ♥️
