Cancel My Subscription! - Grasshopper
We all subscribe to something. The minute you start to believe in something, you have signed up for a lifetime subscription. The question we rarely ask is: "Is my subscription working for me?"
The first sign it's time to cancel a subscription is when you find that you have to constantly defend your stacked up beliefs. Truth needs no defense; something you're not too sure of needs lots of defending.
We all argue for the truth when, in fact, we are arguing for our beliefs. In most cases, we are arguing for our limitations. Beliefs are limiting.
Since we are creatures of belief, we cannot cancel them all, but we would do ourselves a great service to take an inventory of what we subscribe to and find out what's taking up space vs. what's actually enhancing our lives.
Most beliefs deaden you to life because most beliefs are exclusionary. The minute we buy into a belief, we cast aside any other one that isn't a close match. We miss a lot of life when blindly subscribing to a belief.
What have you been arguing in defense of for a long time that isn't working for you? What talk aren't you walking? What is it that you're subscribing to that looks good on paper that is paper thin in reality? What do you espouse that you aren't married to? Answer those questions and you have a subscription that you need to cancel.
Take an inventory of what you subscribe to and then take a hard look at what's not working. If you recommend something to someone else that's not working for you, there's a great point to start. If you have vocal glitches when preaching your famous hiccup remedy, it's time to cancel your subscription.
After inventorying our beliefs, it's time to give recognition to the one that comes to the top of the stack that isn't working and cancel it. You can begin the process of cancellation by no longer defending it. If it's been a source of constant debate in your head for a long time, it's nowhere near the truth. Remember: Truth needs no debate. If it's only your truth, there will be lots of defending and lots of debating.
What are you defending to the high heavens that can't defend itself? Answer: The belief that's not working for you.
Find what you argue for the loudest and you'll find your Achilles Heel – the belief that your belief is right.
The need to be right keeps our non-defendable beliefs in place and keeps our arguments alive.
Recognition that you have a belief that isn't working is the first step. Accepting that it isn't working takes you across the threshold of change. It takes courage to accept that your belief isn't working. It's this act of bravery that spurs you to unsubscribe from that which prevents you from feeling alive.
All the best,
