Test your childhood conclusions fix

June 6, 2017 - 1 minute read
Do you dare to bring your innate gifts to fruition? Or does your negative self-talk keep you from being fully alive? A positive present begins with identifying what keeps us from living our gifts.

When we are small, we draw big conclusions about the world around us and our role in it. The five childhood conclusions go on to produce persistent negative thought loops that, for instance, tell us we don’t belong or that we aren’t good enough. Even if we’ve entertained the same thought a thousand times, that doesn’t make it true.

Within a few minutes this test provides insight in the predominant childhood conclusions that you have drawn as well as in the gifts you are likely to have. The resulting descriptions contain pointers for how to turn negative thoughts into a positive present. You’ll find more about this in my book  The Childhood Conclusions Fix – Turning Negative Self-Talk Around (due October 2017)
