Life is feeling chaotic right now, sitting here too hot from my freshly cooked minestrone soup with cramps pretty much sums up life right now. This morning I journaled like I do most mornings and felt that this mish-mash collection and ramblings of everything in my head would be of use to somebody out there.
This is a collection of thoughts penned from the inside of my journal.
Just trying to make sense of this little world I live in, and perhaps it might help you make sense of something you have going on right now too.
I want to talk to you about why the thoughts that you are thinking to yourself are crucial to your own success.
If you are like any of my clients who first come to see me, you might have these stories swirling around in your head.
- I will never have a successful business.
- I can’t make money doing what I love.
- I am such a fraud, how can I call myself ____.
- I am never going to make it.
- Anything important has already been said.
Those above thoughts could be sporadic or they could feel like they are non stop. You might even wonder why it’s such a big deal? Why does it matter if you sometimes think like that when you truly do want your dreams?
“Your life is right now! It’s not later. It’s not in that time of retirement. It’s not when the lover gets here. It’s not when you’ve moved into the new house. It’s not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it’s not ever going to get better than right now – until it get;’s better right now!” Esther Hicks
Your life is right now and whatever that looks like for you is perfect for you, right now.
There is no where else you need to be in life right now.
Stop rushing, stop hurrying and enjoy this moment right now.
Take a deep breathe, sigh it out.
Pause, look up from your screen and be present in this moment.
Have you ever been on the cusp of a big dream, ready to take action and then quietly your voice lets you know all the reasons why you shouldn’t do this? Maybe you are at this place right now?
Your mind is trying to keep you playing small. It wants to hold you where it is safe and where you are comfortable. The reality is you aren’t going to get want you want by staying where it’s safe.
It’s time to bust out of your comfort zone and question that inner voice of yours. After all you are here to make a difference and play big in this world.
Let’s bust through the most common thought patterns that keep you playing small.
Does it ever feel like everyone around you has totally got their shit together while you have no clue what you are doing? Almost like you are stumbling around in a dark room blind.
You look to your friends on social media and are jealous of how they always have time to see their friends, while you lack the energy or time to fit in a coffee date.
You look at your colleague that strides into work with her gym bag proudly tossed over her shoulder quietly reminding you that she had enough determination to wake up early and exercise. You on the other hand stayed in bed desperate to get moments extra sleep.
