His roadmap of self identity is pretty inspiring:
We develop an initial belief about who we are (normally this is an unconscious belief based on imprints from the media, parents, religious organizations, school, etc). This belief then becomes a pattern (a habitual way of viewing ourselves in our experiences). From this pattern, we create a path (an unconscious way of relating to ourselves and the world around us). And then ultimately our path becomes a rut (oftentimes the path of least resistance and the least amount of awareness. This rut is our autopilot).
The best part about our beliefs is that whatever you discover they are changeable. As Michael shared, The more you say, I am statements, more often the more you are affirming your ruts. He encouraged us to perhaps walk beside the rut rather than in the rut.
So my beautiful friends, as you gaze into your own life- how have your beliefs about who YOU are shaped the patterns of your life? How have these beliefs created patterns? How have these patterns created paths straight into your ruts?
We have the ability to love and nurture the unconscious beliefs that keep us operating on auto pilot. Love yourself enough to come alive.
