Ever wonder why certain thoughts or ideas about yourself affects so much of your motivation and decision making? On this episode we talk all about core beliefs—or the ideas of how you perceive yourself that are built over time based on your life experiences, both for the positive and the negative. Many times in therapy what blocks a person from becoming their best self are negative core beliefs such as: “I’m broken”, “I’m ugly”, “I’m unlovable”, “I’m a failure”, or “I can’t do anything right.” We talk how to discover what your negative core beliefs might be, and how they are affecting your ability to becoming your better self. We also share some thoughts on challenging negative core beliefs with positive and realistic reframing.
