How often have you found yourself with an idea or a plan which you know will take you towards your goal in a big way. As the plan starts to unfold, perhaps it takes you into unfamiliar territory. And a familiar inner-voice begins to talk to you. Do you know the one I’m talking about? The one that says ‘I can’t do it’, ‘how can I?’, ‘I don’t know how to…’
For many of us, it seems easier to allow ourselves to become consumed with self doubt and negative self talk. It feels so much easier and more comfortable to shrink the dream, play small and hold back.
And yet, the idea was like a freshly planted seed, full of potential – filled with goodness destined to grow to become something special. Just as you are here to be the best ‘you’ that you can be – let me tell you, you are here for greatness.
If you recognise this self sabotaging pattern, the one that creates the stomach churning feelings, then I’d like to ask you something. How long will you hold yourself back from the happiness and success which is within your reach?
Come on girl friend! It’s time to dig deep. It’s time to take the plunge, the clock is ticking and your life isn’t waiting. Give your ideas – your little seeds, some love and nurture them into seedlings every day, allowing them to flourish.
Take a little courage and know that you don’t have to do it all alone. There are experts, mentors and friends who can support you to grow tall. And there is sunshine where you least expect it! And you don’t have to do it all at once – just take a step in the direction of your big vision every day. Imagine, how you will feel when you’ve taken that step, pushed your comfort zone a bit bigger – what more you could become now? I believe you’ve not even scratched the surface of what you could achieve. The best is yet to come. Happiness and success are right there – it’s time to go for it!
