The Power Of Believing And Being Enough

Our mind is capable of more than we think

And it begins by asking if you believe whether or not you are enough? Being enough is more than positive thinking because your mind has the power to solve this problem the human race is currently facing.

In this amazingly transformative and highly engaging A-Fest talk, Marisa Peer, voted Britain’s #1 Therapist — whose work includes Hollywood celebrities, Olympic athletes, CEOs and even royalty — brings to the Mindvalley stage heartfelt stories of humanity’s singular biggest problem.

Conventional therapists focus on all of the intricate details of the mind and its array of complications, attempting to diagnose one small problem at a time, sometimes causing negative to no results at all. Marisa Peer, however, looks at the mind’s most basic principles and cuts to the very root of the problem, completely changing people’s lives around in a matter of minutes.

She is, what we call, brilliantly unconventional.

“Changing the world is a big task, but I want to change people. The way to change them is by making them feel they are enough.”
— Marisa Peer

  • The three insights about your brain that will change your life:
    • Your mind does what it truly thinks you want it to do and what it truly believes is in your best interest
    • The way you feel about any event and the way your mind responds is the result of just two things; the pictures you make in your head and the words you say to yourself
    • To succeed at anything you have to make the unfamiliar familiar, and the familiar unfamiliar
  • Marisa brings up an example of how lottery winners lose everything within 2 years of winning the lottery because of their desire for the familiar
  • The story of how an American celebrity changed his life after meeting Marisa Peer in one afternoon
  • The story of how Marisa helped a successful, but suicidal, British trader to accept a thought she had kept from her painful past

  • Marisa shares three exercises showing the power of the mind
  • She explains the major causes of depression are harsh, hurtful and critical words you say to yourself over and over again
  • The story of a depressed writer, and how he began to learn to accept praise into his life instead of criticism
  • The story of how an actress used the power of her mind to the severe detriment of her health
  • This specific programming Marisa shared is not positive thinking — It is direct, specific, detailed, crystal clear commands and instructions that signal and communicate to your mind in a way that gives you great results with no misinterpretation

Key takeaways on being enough:

  • Make anything that is negative unfamiliar and anything positive really familiar
  • Change the pictures, words, and you will tell your brain exactly what you want
  • Say this, “I have chosen to do this, I’ve chosen to feel great about it and I’m enough.”

Tell your mind a new story and it will respond accordingly. Praise yourself by saying things such as:

  • I am enough and I am happy being enough
  • I am a loving and admirable friend
  • I am clever and amazing
  • I am bold, daring, and creative
  • I am incredibly beautiful/handsome inside and out

Of all the things you tell yourself, remember to repeat the followings words and truly feel its truth:

“I am enough. I’ve always been enough. Now that I know that I am enough, everyone else knows it, too. I will always be enough.”
