What lights you up? What is that thing you really want to do but haven’t done yet?
Maybe it sounds something like this….
I am going to quit my job and start a biz.
I am going to book a trip to New Zealand. (I highly recommend NZ by the way)
I am going to stand up for myself.
I am going to get a new job that lights me up.
I am going to tell that special someone I love them.
I am going to sign up for that race.
I am going to get in shape and feel healthy.
I am going to improve my relationships with my partner.
I am going to do that thing I keep talking about.
Does this sound familiar?
What are you not moving forward in? Maybe it’s one thing, maybe its a few. Write them down on a sticky note.
We all have things we want to do, dreams, beautiful visions for what we want our life to look like. You know, the ones that light us up and get excited about. Then there are the blocks, the stops, the delays in not going forward with our visions. Maybe it’s that little voice you hear- I’m not ready, I’m not enough, I don’t deserve that thing, I can’t do it.
Write these reasons on another sticky note. I like sticky notes. Look at this one next to your dreams and take a look.
So, what do you see?
Amazing life on one side and BS stories we tell ourselves on the other. The BS stories are made up, they don’t define who you are and the life you live. The stories will keep you from the life you want to create...if you choose.
I get it. Been there. I remember all the fears and doubts coming up when I started my business, the reinvention of my career, my first time traveling internationally solo and my first race. It went from “I’m so freaking excited” to "what the hell am I doing?” One story is totally disempowering and the other is more empowering and way more fun! It was also my choice of which place to come from.
Post that sticky note of what you want to create somewhere where you can see it daily. Recycle the other one.
This is your life to create…dream big and take action! If you need a little support getting there, reach out to me!
