Never before has there felt such an urgency to revisit our ‘scripts’. We all have one, whether conscious of it or not. It’s usually a result of our early experiences in childhood. Unfortunately, as we get older and get new experiences, we don’t tend to update the software!
This is the scenario of the person, old enough to be a grandmother or grandfather, blaming their parents for the way they are today – instead of claiming the journey that they themselves have made. A really good self assessment is to see what your script is with a person you have never met before. What parts of your story do you tell, what parts are you most attached to? Imagine going to see a new therapist and having to give an emotional, spiritual and physical overview of how you are now. If you were asked the question ‘is there a part of your story where you’d like to begin?’ what would be your response. This is a revealing process of your script.
Would you list all of the bad things that have happened to you? Would you claim the good things that you have created this lifetime?
What would be the title of your life movie? ‘I have to do it on my own.’ ‘The lazy little bastard.’ ‘Life is a struggle.’ ‘Everyone is out to get a piece of me.’ ‘If I hide, I’ll be safe.’
Holding onto these scripts is anchoring us in a past that no longer exists.
Here we are in 2015. What kind of world will we call in if we haven’t updated our software?
And if you did update your software, your script - what would it be? Write it, pin it on your fridge, on the mirror. Remind yourself constantly and subtley so that it goes in without you trying.
Make a future free of past stories that hold you back.
