There’s a whole world right within you.
What it will take to uncover that world is for you to recognise what is most important to you. Light a small spark and let it grow.
When you begin to make intentional action to shape yourself in to the person you’ve always known yourself to be - a few things will happen.
You might start making time for yourself, investing in the things that you love to do.
Bit by bit you are building new habits which will become your new normal.
As you start to know yourself as someone who can dream and have passions, can overcome any challenge and obstacle, knowing yourself as someone who turns themselves inside out to achieve their goals, you will know you are capable of more than you know and as someone who can do anything.
Your passions, dreams and goals have always been with you, maybe you want to take bold action with them. That looks like turning what you love in to the way you earn your income to support a life you want.
By the way the life you want might look different too and that’s ok. How do you want to spend your days? Imagine waking up and being solely in charge of how your day goes? Being free to choose? Empowered to choose?
Working hard is not the challenge or obstacle - you know what working hard looks and feels like. You put your best foot forward in anything you pursue so why wouldn’t you put your best foot forward to pursue your passions, dreams and goals to create an income to support your best life?
Your best life is your best days rolled in to every single day.
Waking up loving yourself and loving your life is not unattainable or unachievable. But you have to be willing to fight for it. It will be uncomfortable only at first because you’ll have to say things out loud you’ve never said to people before. You’ve said it in your head but now you will be better at communicating your needs and wants in a way where people will hear and listen to you.
Why? Because you are loving yourself and your life. There is a level of accountability and integrity you owe yourself to honour your word that you will create your best life - for you.
You will stay true to your promise but you’ll also try to choose the path of least resistance. Which means life the way you used to know it will keep slapping you in the face to make you stay in your comfortable zone.
Stepping out of your comfort zone takes courage, effort and commitment. You need to know why you’re doing this and your why needs to be able to wake you up out of your sleepwalking everyday.
If your why is not yet strong enough to do that, you have to keep looking for your why. A why that gets you moving towards your dreams, passions and goals and it ain’t letting any barrier, challenge or obstacle get in the way.
You are relentless towards achieving what you say you want.
You know you can break through the barriers because you’ve set up little goals such as pushing through mental barriers - maybe it’s a workout or running a 5klm, a 10klm, bike rides where somehow you’ve empowered the kids to get the family to exercise, empowering your kids to resolve their own problems,
Maybe it’s finishing that project in and around the house that you’ve waited years to do. Maybe it’s finally reading the books people have been recommending to you and you’ve heard people talk about? Maybe it’s making meditation a daily habit? Maybe it’s baking or cooking?
Whatever it is - you feel accomplished that you can achieve whatever it is you set out to achieve - letting the little spark grow!
