Thought ladders or future beliefs?


I’m watching an old call with Brooke about Your Thoughts About You. And she says about believing the thoughts you want to believe before they come true e.g. ‘I am a successful coach’

But then I’ve also learned about the thought ladder to get you closer to believing things you don’t yet believe e.g. ‘Some people in the world become successful coaches, and I could be one of them.’

When should you just go all in and try and believe the thought that hasn’t yet materialized, and when should you use a thought ladder? Because I feel like the ideas contradict themselves.

Thanks 🙂
