One thing that we all seem to have in common is that we fight for our limitations to some degree. We whine and complain that our lives aren’t working and talk incessantly about what’s wrong and what’s missing. Yet that very conversation keeps everything in place. Yes, we get what we focus on. So what are you focused on? Another way to say this is; where your attention goes, energy flows.
You will NEVER, let me repeat this… You will NEVER get to where you want to be as long as you ARE beating the drum of what’s wrong and what’s not working. That includes self-flagellation, judging, and my personal favorite, justifying why you’re right. You can be right all day long about what someone did or didn’t do, but that is NEVER going to change the situation or get you to where you want to be. Period. End of Story. No exceptions.
So why do we do this? We have programs running in the subconscious—stories we’ve made up about situations… habitual, negative self-talk and negative thinking, etc. Do you think it’s time for a new story—one that is supportive, motivating, empowering, and gives you a feeling of hope and ultimately excitement? Oh my, what would life look like if you felt excited about your life?! Really, what would it look like? Go ahead—Imagine it. Write it. Draw it. Speak it.
That alone will get you unstuck and starting to move in the direction of your dreams, desires, and aspirations. Start your New Year with a fresh outlook and new conversations.
I can definitely help you get started in the right direction and develop a new perspective and empowering conversations.
