Do you feel like you are good enough? Recently I heard a talk by mindset coach, celebrity therapist, and best-selling author of 4 books, including “Ultimate Confidence,” Marisa Peer, who has helped thousands of people overcome all sorts of problems with her mindset training. Her approach is simple.
Marisa says that she can usually tell what someone’s problem is within the first 2-3 minutes of a conversation. That’s because it’s usually one thing—somewhere along the line they acquired the belief that they weren’t good enough. And this one belief plays out in symptoms ranging from meltdowns, attempted suicides, depression, and multiple marriages, to bad behaviors, eating disorders, and lack of success.
This belief that you aren’t good enough can be triggered by something that happened to you as a child. Perhaps one of your parents left the family, and you felt abandoned. Perhaps you were told that you weren’t good enough by a teacher in school. Or perhaps you had an abusive sibling that made you feel that way. In any case, it happened, and you created that belief.
