Several months ago I went to see a speaker talked about his experiences rock climbing, hiking and kayaking fierce rapids…this man is blind. He was a total inspiration sharing his story about living his life with out barriers.
We all can create self-imposed barriers- Am I strong enough? Can I do this, Am I worthy? All the fears of what may happen or not happen. I know many of you view me as the strong woman who tackles mountains and loves adventure, and sure, this is true! Yet let’s not forget, I am also human. I have had my own fears and doubts too. I have faced also faced these barrier when I am doing something big, and although I don’t allow them to stop me, I realized there was still a little more to look at.
I knew that I was ready to let go of the remainder of stuff that was holding me back. The questions, barriers, beliefs, and fears keeping me from what I truly, deeply desired in life.
So I chipped away these remaining beliefs and barriers – providing space to level up in life! To put into ACTION my next level of goals, passions, and purpose. I got clear on what was holding me back and no longer served me and I then I got complete with it. Changing those thoughts, choices, and decisions in life has opened up a new path.
From standing in my power during speaking engagements, saying no to where I once said yes, and saying yes to where I once said no. I have taken vulnerability and openness to a whole new level. I have been stepping over those obstacles and leveling up as a result!
And let me tell you, it has been beautiful and freeing! I’m not done either.
Sure, people may view me differently. Some for the better, some not. But guess what? LIFE is about how you view YOURSELF. Every day. I am the mirror image of me. No one else.
And so my practice suggestion to you is this:
Find yourself a piece of paper, write out all of your limiting beliefs and barriers. Jot down those stories you have created, the thoughts that no longer serve you. Be real with what you have told yourself all of these years! There is no shame in honesty.
Now, imagine for a moment YOUR LIFE without barriers. Without strings attaching you to those thoughts, limiting beliefs, and recurring stories holding you back. Write that down and save it in a place you can see it.
This week, I encourage you to slowly chip away and release those barriers and patterns. One by one, with every step forward. Create that path to what YOU most desire and are passionate about in life!
