Beware the IGMU

Ugly IGMU Face

 

Years ago, one of my clients made up the word, IGMU. It means, I got made up. (Grammar wasn’t the point!)

 

As in I got made up that:

I have to …
I can’t …
Something bad will happen if …
I’ll never …
[Fill in appropriate name] thinks I’m …

IGMUs become self-fulfilling prophecies. You act according to what you believe which then gets you what you expect.

Our lives are filled with assumptions, with IGMUs. Since it’s all made up anyway, make up the stuff that serves you well instead of that which holds you back.

As in, I got made up that:
I can …
I will …
I’m confident …
Self-care is good …
I have the courage to …

What IGMUs will you choose?
