The truth is that the reason you aren’t living the life of your dreams is because of a great big laundry list of excuses, most of which fall into one of four camps:
Let's imagine that you want to leave your boring job, or your unstimulating relationship, or start your own photography business. Or maybe you want to sell your art , retrain as a teacher, or help people conquer their fears. Perhaps you have a secret desire to be a model, teach yoga in Bali, or manage a homestead in Costa Rica…
Whatever the dream, if it isn’t your reality or you don’t feel like you are well on your way, then there is something holding you back.
Doubt is overcome by faith.
These are all real feelings and real thoughts that run through the minds of real people, just like you and me everyday. BUT, listening to these doubts and making them right, instead of choosing FAITH, instead of believing that you are absolutely deserving and worthy, and that it is all possible and all available for you, is a choice.
Fear, that you’re not enough. Fear, of failure. Fear, of looking silly. Fear of not knowing how.
Fear that you’ll not make enough money to survive, pay your bills or look after your kids. Fear of uncertainty, or being rejected are primal fears, and unless you’re walking down a dark alleyway at night often just aren’t warranted in 2018. You have food, you have shelter, there isn’t a bear about to enter the cave.
Being afraid isn’t going to change that. Believing in yourself and your ability to navigate them will.
“I need more money first.”
“I don’t have the time.”
“No one will support me”
“My kids need me”
“I’m busy with work”
“I don’t have the skills.”
“My partner doesn’t get it.”
“My friends won’t like me anymore.”
In order to get different results, you need to do something different, more importantly though, you’re going to need to believe something different.
Whether you believe that life is supposed to be hard, or life is your playground is up to you.
Whether you believe you can, or you can’t is up to you.
What meaning you chose to give to your experience is up to you.
The procrastination, the distraction, is a choice - and could be cured by a better plan, or by modifying your beliefs about what is really possible.
Stay wild, stay true, always be YOU
