I got a brand new podcast mic! What does that have to do with you? A lot! We are constantly making choices that either keep us stuck or move us forward- and our decisions are largely rooted in our identity- how we identify with ourselves.
My first thought when I went to buy this new mic was “who do I think I am to invest this kind of money in a MICROPHONE!?” My second thought was: “who am I not to?”
We do this all of the time- if I do not identify as a podcast host, if I don’t think I’m legit enough- I am definitely never going to make decisions that “legit podcast hosts” make.
The same is true for you- if you don’t identify as a woman who lifts, you’re going to make decisions that keep you in that realm- as a woman who doesn’t lift.
The examples go on and on and on.
But we can make small decisions that force us to level up.
We can make small decisions that make us feel the way we want to feel- so that we can slowly start to shed the skin of an old identity that no longer serves us.
