Episode 5: “I can’t do that. I’m not that kind of person.”

Changing what you believe about yourself isn’t about trying to convince yourself that you’re something you’re not.

It happens naturally when you choose to show up in the world in a different way.

Oprah quotes:

“I used to pray for the discipline to lose weight. My diary is literally filled with prayers to God, `Please give me the willpower . . .’ Then when I finally did it, I realized you don’t pray for discipline, you get discipline by doing it.”

–Oprah (as quoted in this article)

“. . . it wasn’t until I made the decision to be true to my word that my prayers were answered. I began to work out every morning whether I liked it or not. And before long, I started to behave and look like a disciplined person.”

–Oprah (as quoted in Barbara Stanny’s book, Sacred Success)
