Your mind is your asset OR it's your worst enemy. Sometimes ( ok 99% of the time) we are standing in our own way. If you are anything like me, at some time in the recent past, you found yourself at a place in life where you felt like there must be more. I know I have had this moment very often in my past that is something hard to shake. A lot of times you need to get out of your own head and start living up to your potential.
Here’s the thing, everyone in your life and in your head will have an opinion, but none of them matter, what matters is the voice of your heart. It's not easy to listen to your heart when there is so much chatter going on around you. These opinions may be wonderful and they may be awful, it doesn’t really matter though. It doesn’t matter because none of these voices have the actual answer you are looking for. The answer you are looking for is the one that is you know in is in your heart.The hard part is shutting out the noise around you and stop letting the opinions of others rule your thinking. Next time you have the urge to ask the opinion of others, take a step back and remind yourself that it is not their opinion that counts. Tell yourself that you can handle this on your own, and give yourself the space you need to do it.
Visions are powerful, which is why you create a vision board. It is your personal declaration to the world that you are manifesting something beautiful. You aren’t exactly sure what you want, you haven’t tried most of the options, and they all look so good, so how are you supposed to know which way to choose. Figuring out a path seems so far away, almost unattainable actually, and you are not sure how you will ever get clear. And here you are again, stuck.
Think about it this way, you have become honest and clear about what you do not want, what no longer serves you. You have all of this creative energy flowing around within you, suggesting a multitude of ideas that sound interesting to you. You are on a path toward living a life that you feel passionate about. And you get to go through the process of making your dreams come true. Sounds pretty amazing if you ask me! So why are you doubting your internal abilities to make the right choices? Do you really need the affirmation from someone else about the decision that your heart is already holding?
It is your job to find ways to let go of preconceived notions and judgement to allow your inner wisdom to shine through. Basically, you need to get out of your own way. Take some time to get quiet and feel your way through the thoughts and ideas that come to you. Begin writing them out and creating vision charts and lists to help you get clear. Eventually, you can turn this into a vision board that contains very specific reminders of where you are headed.
Moving in the direction of your dreams, especially when the road isn’t clear, can be a scary thing. All of your fears and self-doubts tend to rise to the surface and seem to do their best to hold you back. Even when you are unhappy or dissatisfied, it can be easier to stay in that safe comfortable space, rather than taking a step into the unknown. You hear yourself saying things like you will take action when the time is right, that you will start once you have done more research, or that you are just waiting to get things in place. The truth is, you are scared and you are using excuses to stop you from taking the scary next steps that you know you must take.
It’s your time now…time for you to live your dreams and enjoy the life you are meant to live!
