You Have to Kill the Person You Were Born to be to Become the Person You Want to Be

I love musicals!

Last night, the huz and I went out to see Rocketman, and the whole time I was watching it, all I could think about was coaching.

I won’t spoil it for you, but I have to mention one key part.

One of the bandmates from Elton’s early years told him, “You have to kill the person you were born to be to become the person you want to be.”

Pause on this one because it freaking matters.

You have to kill the person you were born

to be to become the person you want to be.


At my core– this moves me.

I wasn’t born to be a life coach.

I wasn’t born to have a college education, or to be an author.

Who were you born to be?

What is you belief about yourself because of how you were born?

Do you have a glimmer of hope that there is more for you? That you just want more from yourself? From your life?

If so, you are going to have to full on murder all of the beliefs you have that are keeping you stuck.

You are going to have to reject the automatic thoughts that keep coming up over and over again. If you need help figuring out how to do this, check out my post: How to Get Unstuck.

Then you will have to start working on new thoughts to believe– thoughts that the you who already has what she wants will think.

You might be thinking, you don’t know what my future self would think, but don’t shut yourself down so quickly. Pause for a minute.

Imagine your future self. Really get a vision for her.

Spend time imagining who she is, what she does, how she moves, dresses, acts, feels, speaks.

Then start thinking about how SHE would speak to herself. Think of the person you want to become, and whenever the old thoughts come up- kill them.

Game over!

And now game on!
