Today we’re going to talk about triggers because I’m going to reference the word trigger a lot in these Facebook LivesÂ Â (this is a transcript of this video)Â and triggers gives you valuable information as to why you feel stuck.
So, a situation or experience in your life triggers a âstoryâ or a limiting belief that has been keeping you stuck in that area.
And limiting belief is just like it sounds…
a belief that’s limiting you from growing your life to the next level.
If you’re wanting to grow your health, relationships, career, or bank account thereâs a set of beliefs that are keeping you stuck at that certain level. Like you can’t cross the threshold to the next level
Does that make sense?
I also interchangeably use the word stories, because it’s a story.
And oftentimes, it’s total fiction.
Itâs a limiting belief or âstoryâ that’s totally false holding you back from up-leveling your life.
I just recently got triggered and I want to share with you how I handled it.
I have been thinking about investing in myself and Wildly Alive in a really big way for about 4 weeks now.
It was a pretty big investment for me, it was $11,111. And the last time that I invested 5 figures in my business, it did not go well.Â This is important for you to know as to WHY this was such a big trigger for me.
The coach was terrible. It brought out my deepest, ugliest, darkest sides. And I ended up in A LOT more debt at the end of it.
There were lots of good lessons that I learned but I refuse to let that experience go down in vain. So I extractedÂ $30,000 worth of lessons!
I grew and I’m stronger because of it. And I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for that experience.
So, now after aaaaa lot of forgiveness work, I’m grateful for it.Â
Okay, so back to this new investment. Iâve been telling Zac (my hubs) and my friends that I was going to do it. It just felt right. I could feel it in my bones that I needed to say yes.
And now it was time to actually pay for it. It was time for the rubber to meet the road…Â and the trigger was coming up BIG TIMEÂ whileÂ camping over the weekendâ¦ (I was planning on signing up on the upcoming Monday).
Typically camping is really relaxing and peaceful but this time was so different.
I started to think about charging $11,000 on a credit card, and becameÂ super irritable.
âHow am I going to pay it back?â
âI should just wait and save up and pay cash.â
âAm I really worth this investment?
âAm I crazy for trying this again?â
âWhat if I fail again?â
âWhat if I end up in more debt again?â
A trigger can feel like a little jab in your sideÂ or a sick feeling in your stomachÂ or becoming incredibly edgy.
I kept trying to be present and enjoy nature but I couldnât relax, it was showing up as irritabilityÂ for me in this moment.Â
What also happened, and this is the sneaky trick of Helga, or your self-sabotaging voice, your ego. She started picking apart this other coach I was going to hire.
Dissecting her every move:
Why she’s not good for me.
Why she’s not worth that investment.
How her programs aren’t really going to help me.
This nasty part of me was just like, âHmm, yeah, you know what? I’m not going to do it…â
Even though I’ve said I was 100% INÂ for the last 4 weeks and said multiple times, âIâm totally digging her style and sheâs doing so well, and I want the success she has!â
I was ready to go back on my word and fall victim to this trigger which wouldâve kept me stuck.
Can you see how this “story” wasÂ keeping me from up-levelingÂ my life?!
Keep listening to learn what I did next to rise above this limiting belief so I could rise.
