The ONE thing that holds you back.
This time I’m doing it – honest. Sound familiar?
We’ve all been there. You hear that inspiring story, watch this encouraging clip or attend the up lifting event and BAM! Whatever the challenge you commit to conquer, all your good intentions just don’t get it off the ground. Your sought after results don’t get a shoe in because of those crafty barriers which always seem to magically appear. But do they?
When I use to commute to work from the ‘burbs’ to the city, peak hour was something that on more than one occasion would have me develop a twitch. No blue tooth in those days and you were lucky to have a cassette player. Start, stop. Start, stop. Crawl a little, up a gear, stop. Completely out of my control.
You’re good at your job. You manage your home. You’re the generally ‘get things done’ kinda soul. So why is it that starting something you know at your core will be of benefit to you can be so crazy hard?
Well you may not like it but the truth is… YOU are stopping yourself. In fact you’re not allowing yourself to really begin. There aren’t any barriers falling from the sky blocking your way. There are only procrastinations and justifications which you create to make it seem ok. OUCH!
Now it’s not my intention to bully but rather it’s my way of loving on you to help you understand that if you really, really want something to change in your life then YOU are the catalyst. In fact it’s pretty cool when you get how fabulous you truly are!
So what’s the key? … Your mind set. That’s what needs the overhaul. And whose in charge of that? Why you of course! And you can start with this three part process.
First you THINK it
Second you must SPEAK it and
Third you must ACT to make it happen.
And guess what? You’re already an expert as you’ve been doing this all your life. Give yourself some credit (why not even a hug) Too much?
The hidden beauty about those gruelling peak hour treks was that I always got to work. It may not have been in the time frame expected but I got there none the less. Which leads me to believe there is indeed a fourth part to the process and that is CHILL OUT! The journey may take time, it will inevitably have its ups & downs. But if you really, really want it then you and only you have the power to make it happen.
Go, go, go.
Yours in good health and fun…
