We’ve all heard the old saying “jock block”.
Well actually, the first word rhymes with jock and resembles a male body part — and I’m pretty sure you get the picture. Or reference, I should say 😉
The phrase is referring to when someone stops you from getting what you want, and in this case, it would be a guy.
They are blocking you from getting him, and therefore, they are being a jock block.
This same notion can be applied to many blocks that we have in life. For example, money blocks, love blocks, health blocks, and the list goes on.
With the exception of the first example, all of these blocks have something in common.
They are brought on by ourselves.
We are blocking ourselves from what we want.
For whatever reason, sabotage kicks in, and we stop ourselves from moving closer to our potential
Sometimes it’s fear of success that stops us, and other times we fear the unknown, lack self worth, have low confidence, or just don’t believe in ourselves
Whatever the reason, we all self sabotage in some way or another and we have to make a change.
You become what you believe, so it’s very important to control your thoughts and believe you can.
Just like the Little Engine that Could would constantly recite to itself, “I think I can, I think I can.”
Because it knew the great power in the words we choose to tell ourselves.
So many of us have a limited perspective on what we think we’re capable of (or worthy of receiving) and this is holding you back from what’s possible.
Here’s 3 tips that you can start today, that’ll stop you from being your own boss block:
- Ask yourself if what you’re saying is absolutely true. If you find yourself saying things like, “I can’t do this”, “I’m not good enough”, “I’m not smart enough”, “I don’t deserve this” etc, stop yourself in the moment and say, “Is what I’m saying absolutely true?” If the answer is no, than choose to say something truthful to yourself.
- I can’t vs I can. It takes just as much effort to say, “I can’t” as it does to say, “I can”. Choose whatever option makes you feel better about yourself and what you want to achieve.
- There’s great power in “I am” affirmations. Start talking about the things you want, as if you already have them. Rather than saying, “I want to have a job I love” or “I can’t wait to have a beautiful home”, switch your words to, “I love my job” and “I am empowered in my lovely home.”
Doing this will trick your mind into believing that you already have what you want, and will help you feel the feels in advance. It will also help you see that it’s possible, which will encourage you to take action to make it happen. You’re basically planting the seed in the manifestation process!
Once you’ve decided what you’re going to start telling yourself, I’d love to hear how this was for you.
