“I knew it was too good to be true,” “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”
What terrible thoughts! Unfortunately, I have thought it and said it myself.
It’s a skeptical view-point and a scarcity mindset that something seemingly fine must have something wrong with it.
It’s a belief that nothing is as good as it seems, or worse…that you aren’t worthy of receiving anything so good and favorable, so it must not be true!!!!
Now I am not talking about things that are false being true, I am talking about legit, real things feeling too good, and/or being so close to what we want that we back away because, well…”it’s just too good to be true.”
So we fail ahead of time because we don’t want to be disappointed.
We don’t go for the job, or invest emotionally into the relationship or jump into the new business, even when we see evidence that we are on the right path, we dismiss the evidence as, “too good to be true.”
That thought is just a thought put there by your brain as an effort to keep you safe, from feeling fear and rejection and feeling anxiety, it’s your brains motivational triad at work, and that’s OK.
Doesn’t mean you have to listen, doesn’t mean you have to respond, and it doesn’t mean it’s even true.
The truth is that “nothing is too good to be true” is a thought that you can choose to think as you approach your goals and objectives.
As you start down the path of up-leveling your life, becoming your future you, you are going to come face to face with opportunities and advantages. Recognize them and take them. They are not too good to be true, this is the way that the universe works.
Try thinking the thought that “nothing is too good to be true” over and over, write it out over and over. Feel the peace that comes from thinking a thought like that, see if you start seeing opportunities and advantages coming your way.
My husband and I made a major life decision last year and almost as soon as we decided the “what” the “how” started presenting itself.
We started seeing opportunities that we could explore, and take advantage of. We didn’t get emotionally challenged or charged by any of the several opportunities available. We didn’t dismiss any of them as too good to be true either.
In fact, our approach is that we are open to all of it and nothing is too good to be true.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” It’s true!
The science behind it is tied to your thoughts. Your brain wants to prove your thoughts true. Think the thoughts on purpose that you want to see come true.
It was still scary, but fear is just a vibration in the body, it doesn’t hurt. It is exciting and excitement is just a vibration in the body as well. It was hard but only when I thought the thought, “this is hard.” When I focused on how easy things were coming together, guess what? Things came together very easily.
We proved all of our thoughts true during the entire process.
Now, that doesn’t mean that I was proud of every moment. Not at all! I am still human. But for sure, I was very aware of my brain proving my thoughts true.
What makes you feel good or bad, is the thought that you choose to think.
Somehow, we humans got the idea that we should only have good thoughts and things would be easy and fun and daisies and rainbows in pursuit of our goals and dreams.
That’s not true.
Pursuing your goals and dreams is scary, and exciting and hard and requires growth and you get tested and you fail, you learn and you try again and you grow again and then you get there and think…huh, that wasn’t so bad, what’s next?
So my friends, nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, is too good to be absolutely true!
