We all get ‘stuck’ and make excuses from our well crafted reasons for why we don’t have the courage to take care of ourselves.
This is one of my favourite books and has a GREAT message!
Watch it and read it and unslump yourself!
Get out of the waiting place…
You can watch it here:
I love this picture. It says it all. Time to unwrap…change your thinking….it takes time so get started!
To be authentically true to yourself you need to take risks and push yourself to do what you know is ‘right’ for yourself.
It is too easy to hide within conformity and not ‘live’.
Having been through quite a few change processes I know that I need time and talking and thinking and listening and sometimes that good friend (usually my wonderful husband) to push me in the right direction.
All the stories about Tall Poppy Syndrome and being ‘the talk of the town’ when you do something that is out of the ‘ordinary’ or not expected are true. It IS hard but only IF you let other people pass judgement and influence your future.
All they are is ‘other people’. Their opinions will only influence you if you let them.
You hold the power, you really do. It’s scary, it’s exciting….be your authentic self!
So if you want to be that teacher, drain layer, singer, dancer, athlete then YOU must!
Work hard, think and reflect, re-evaluate, change and move on.
“Oh, I couldn’t do that.” “I’ve always wanted to but..”
“I’m not good enough”
“What would people think”
And on and on it goes.
I know this thinking because I owned it for so long. According to my self-image, I was the reason why I couldn’t do the things I wanted…I just didn’t ‘see’ that my thinking was my barrier to happiness.
So, here comes that time…that time when you need to flip the ‘stinking thinking’ and see the bright side, the opportunity, the wondrous creation that you are and get on and be fabulous!
