Are you ready to dial up the energy in your life? Having the right components is vital to achieving any great task . One of the most powerful assets you can own when you're goal chasing is the understanding of self. Ask yourself about your dreams.
Observe your inner dialog. Be mindful of the conversations taking place within your mind. Are these conversations stemming from messages you've heard from other people? A good friend of mine gave me a liberating piece of advice. I sobbed with double pumped tears about something that an abusive ex-boyfriend of mine had said to me. Rochelle responded with "WHO gets to decide who YOU ARE?"
This simple question was the beginning of a breakthrough for me. I had allowed this man to choose who I was. I handed my authority over to him. It worked out pretty nicely, since that meant I never had to be responsible for myself. When shit went wrong, it was always his fault. If I had a good day or a bad day, it was up to him. I never had to take ownership over anything. I got to sit comfortably in victimhood while he ran all over me.
The mind acts like a magnet. I attracted the things I feared. What I spent the most time with in my mind, even on a subconscious level, came full circle. It bombarded my daily life. I came from a toxic and abusive childhood. My subconscious was attracting what I had always known to be true of myself at that time. Again, I became a product of my environment. I believed whatever my parents had told me of myself. Until I disciplined my mind, that would always be the case. This is my truth. Your truth may differ from my own. But the message is still the same. You gotta own your bullshit, no matter how we we're assigned to it. It's ours now. We must dig down deep if we truly desire to achieve a richer and fuller life.
I began to understand that I cannot allow other people to define me. It offers them far too much power over my life. Generally, when people suggest we have a limited ability the statement is about themselves. What they feel their own limitations are. These statements have nothing to do with you at all.
You may struggle to believe yourself worthy enough. To have a life filled with abundance and success. Spend time analyzing yourself. Look within. Spend time reading and listening to motivational materials. Send yourself positive affirmations each and everyday. Realize that you are capable of marvelous and amazing things! You are deserving to see your dreams unfold and you are only limited by the barriers you create for yourself.
What are the roadblocks that prevent you from accomplishing your dreams and goals? Is it lack of resources, your circumstances, or is it fear? Are your past failures preventing you from moving towards your aspirations? One of your greatest teachers and biggest motivators should actually be your failures.
Failure is an opportunity to reevaluate. It's an opportunity to get to know yourself better and redirect your path. Things will go wrong. You must keep getting back up. It might be messy at times. It won't be perfect. In time, you will learn to cultivate your practice.
Empower yourself by taking responsibility for your success. This will nurture your most favorable outcomes. Claim ownership over how you choose to use your energy. We must have the desire to put in the work and to do the tasks, that most other people won't bother to show up to do. Half the battle is just in your showing up! That is what sets us apart from the wishers.
Take action and spend your time and energy wisely. Although the work may not be fun, if you are living your life's purpose, it will be rewarding beyond measure. Many people tend to get stuck on the wishing. They spend years wishing this will happen for them. Or that thing/person over there will change. You can waste a lifetime doing this, never discovering your true purpose. Learning to discipline and master your inner chatter requires courage. And, it's undoubtedly, difficult. That's why it is so important to speak positive affirmations to yourself.
Surround yourself with people who are on a similar path as you. It is in this process where you will discover your personal magic. Be weary of the complainers. They will draw your vitality from you and drain all your energy. I've never known anyone to cross a finish line of any race while seated on a pity pot. You can achieve anything with the right mental attitude. You are capable and worthy of greatness in your life.
