We’ve said a lot about faking it. A lot about walk this way, hold your face that way, do this and do that. But maybe for you there is something there that is holding you back. Something that tells you no matter what that you aren’t good enough, that you’re being ridiculous even reading these or that it just isn’t going to work for you.

Do you guys know the card game called bullshit? You play along ‘dumping’ cards with the aim of putting down all your cards before the other players. I might put down two cards and call them 2 aces. If one of the other players doesn’t believe me, for whatever reason, they call bullshit. If I am lying, I have to pick up ALL the cards in the pile, if I wasn’t they have to.

When you call someone out you call bullshit.

And why is this relevant?

Well, today you are going to face that little voice in your head and call bullshit.

The voice that says you’re not worth it.

The voice that says you don’t deserve it.

The voice that says you’re stupid, ugly, pointless and unworthy.

The voice that says you have stuffed up this life so badly that there’s no coming back.

Tell that voice that Suger says bullshit.

And I am sure as heck not going to be the one holding all the cards. Because that voice is mean. It’s horrible. It doesn’t know what the heck it is talking about. It is designed to keep you safely in your place. A warm bubble of non-threatening nothingness. But we don’t want warm bubbles of nothingness. We want confidence.

And so, BULLSHIT!

Daily Challenge: Call Bullshit on yourself and the negative thoughts you’re thinking.

    Lovin this series Suger…but this is a toughie…as much as I call myself on my Bullshitto…there is still something that holds me back….very ingrained…childhood related…must keep working on it though… 🙂

    • Thank you Jen. It is. It’s a toughie. It will become less ingrained, trust me on that. I still get it some days and calling bullshit is the last thing on my mind. I’m more like oh my gooooood, it’s riiiiight, I’m so crao and ugly and stupid. But I refuse to stay there, no matter how convinced I am that I’m right.

    Yeah I tend to agree with Jen R. This series is BRILLIANT, FABULOUS, KNOCKIN SOCKS OFF THINGS THAT DIDN’T EVEN HAVE SOCKS ON TO BEGIN WITH! but this one is hard. I can all bullshit as many times and as loudly as I can possibly scream but 12 years of self doubt, of negative thinking, of being let down kind trumps any attempt to do so. I’ll keep trying but it’s going to be one hell of a long hard drawn out fight and if I’m honest, it’s a fight I’m kind of running out of steam TO fight.

    • It is. Absolutely it is hard. But it’s worth it. Some days there will be freedom from that voice, and those are the days that make ALL the bull shit days in between worth it. I view it less like a fight and more like a game. You have to catch it out to win. Call bullshit and let the thought go. Fighting against it keeps it around longer in my experience. 😉

  • I really love this point. How often are we zeroed in on something about ourselves that isn’t really that big of a deal and no one else is noticing?

    I have been learning more and more that 98% of what I am worrying about people who I’ve been around for many many years have never noticed until I’ve pointed it out and by that point I’ve over exaggerated it in my mind so much that I come off completely bonkers.
    I think that asking those around you, who are close to you what they like about you is a very imporant thing to do, and to return compliments and make sure people know what you like about them! It’s nice when you have that memory up your sleeve of a dear friend saying something positive about something you may be feeling negative about in that moment.

    • Thank you. This is great news, there’s freedom in the realising that no body is really watching, not really. You’re so wonderful lovely. Keep on keeping on. xo

  • Yep know what you mean. Reading Tony Robbins “Awaken the Giant Within”. Fantastic motivating material!
