You have great ideas and visions for what you want in your life, whether that's starting a business, a new career, reinventing your business, health and wellness or relationship. However you can't quite get there and wondering what is going on and why you can't hit the mark. It is quite a frustrating experience.
What do you think is the biggest roadblock that gets in your own way of getting what you want? Yes you guessed it, you! I know, not always fun to hear.
Now that you have some awareness of this, you can choose differently and make some shifts. Without the awareness, we can't make the shifts. I will share a few ways we get in our way and suggestions to move forward.
Self-Doubt: When you are up to new things, self-doubt can attempt to run the show. You may ask yourself: Am I enough? Can I actually do this? Am I worthy of this? Do I have what it takes? What if I really mess up? Most people up to big things feel some sort of imposter syndrome. You are challenging yourself outside of your comfort zone. The good news is that we don't have to listen to all of your thoughts, they are not always accurate of your ability to achieve something and we get to choose different thoughts and thoughts that actually serve us.
Not trusting yourself or others: You may find yourself looking for external validation from your friends, partner, or family for what you should you do. You may find it really hard to decide for yourself on what is best for you. While yes it is helpful to bounce ideas off of others, their advice may not always be what is best for you and indicative of what you need. A practice would be a round of deep breathing to get grounded, connect with yourself, your heart, and soul. Listen for what comes up. We have the answers within us, it's trusting in ourselves to actually hear it.
Not asking for support and doing it alone: Some of us super independent people try to do it alone and don't think we need support. Guess what? We ALL need support. You are worthy of being fully supported. The thing is, you can actually get to where you are going a bit quicker with support around you. A practice would be is asking for support, whether that's to be heard, a referral for your business or some encouragement.
Not allowing or open to receiving: So maybe you are gaining traction on your goals and good things are starting to roll in. If you are not open to allowing the good things to come in, whether that's money or love, or whatever, you create an energetic block of actually getting what you want. A practice may be of simply allowing: whether that's a compliment, money flow, or love.
Having a beautiful vision and not taking action: You have this beautiful vision of what you want in your life, you can see it, feel it, taste it. However without action, you won't get there. A practice would be creating an action plan and steps to reach your goal and setting up some accountability structures.
