I am working through the exercise on Podcast #188 but I am asking for a little help:
What is your current painful thought?
I am not smart enough or fast enough.
Why are you choosing to believe this?
Because I produce too slowly = been told this from a young age
Is there any part of this thought that is not factual?
I am not smart enough comes from my own judgment. Slow = stupid
My question: Is the “slow” part a judgment? In the course of working, I have missed some deadlines. From that, I have this repeated thought “I am slow. If I were smarter, I would be faster.”
I am having trouble parsing fact versus thought to move forward in the exercise.
