'The professional learns to recognise envy-driven criticism and to take it for what it is: the supreme compliment. The critic hates most that which he would have done himself if he had had the guts.' - Steven Pressfield, The War of Art
You are good enough.
Perfectionism is a fear of not feeling good enough, which leads to procrastination - how to counterbalance this?
You were born to create change for a reason in your life and for others too.
You may have been told, 'The world does not revolve around you.'
Well, it does. It revolves around your beliefs, your mindset. Contrary to what we were brought up to believe!
Discontent is the first step to progress.
Be clear of your own power and decide what you want.
Be brave and courageous about your desires.
Once you commit it changes everything. The universe will move to help you.
Resistance is fear - thinking you're not good enough or I don't feel like it - is a form of resistance.
Being ruled by fears. Playing small. Self-sabotaging. Not investing in yourself. Indecision and waffling.
Fear of what they'll say if you succeed.
Ignoring the signs.
Afraid of criticism.
Resenting rich and successful people.
Not enough faith in your abilities - whether you think you can or can't, you're right.
Most people don't believe in themselves - being afraid to rock the boat.
So get out of your own way because... low self-esteem costs you money. Low self-esteem costs you love.
You only attract what you feel worthy of right now - your current life is a perfect reflection of your beliefs.
When you believe you are truly worthy of wealth - money will flow to you from countless directions.
Same with love. Same with career/job. Same with anything you may want to manifest.
Get very clear about what you want and write it down - look at it daily. You must then fully commit and the universe/providence will move to help you.
Be brave and courageous about what you want because we have to commit before we have any guarantee that anything is going to work!
With no proof it's going to work out, most people don't take action on their dreams. You have to believe in order to see it.
The actions you take and the decisions you make on a daily basis will show your commitment. I've found that once you demonstrate your commitment the universe/providence will step in to help you by introducing you to people who can help and all sorts of serendipity will happen! So get very clear about the outcome you want.
Visualisation is a brilliant tool to use for this and is really the secret to getting anything you want. Unless you truly believe your goals can happen they won't. Using your imagination with visualisation to help you change your mindset is a very powerful tool.
I've learnt that the more we want something - the more certain we can be that the venture is important to us and the growth of our soul. If it meant nothing to us - there would be no resistance.
So remember, if you're fearful - that's a good sign - it shows you what you have to do...
A morning spiritual practice is great for setting a great day ahead and keeps you focused on your goals which will help override any fear! I believe in the power of creative thought and visualisation - meditate, connect with nature and have peaceful moments with affirmations and visualisations to get you into that zone of co-creating your desired future.
If you are not creating the life you want because your resistance is too great - try these methods daily. Repetition, repetition, repetition is the key - it will also make you joyful which will help you attract what you want.
Sometimes you can create such unhappiness within yourself which becomes so unbearable that it gives you the breakthrough that you need and it finally can break the dam of resistance and you move forward. However, a much kinder way of breaking the dam of resistance is to take a more spiritual route by gently changing your mindset beliefs. There are no such things as problems only opportunities.
You don't manifest what you want - you manifest what you believe. Your limiting belief system can be blocking you to financial/personal success - it's easy to shift - anyone can consciously reprogram their brain through daily repetition of meditation, affirmations, visualisation etc. It starts with your beliefs. Learn how to do it. Once you understand the omnipotent power that exists in your subconscious mind, you will never want for answers. The subconscious mind has answers and solutions in abundance right now within you. Why are we not taught this at school!? I plan to change this.
The Universe responds to love and it cannot resist authenticity! So develop a abundant mind... love is the opposite of fear.
Learn to love and take care of yourself and learn to have a good spiritual connection every day to strengthen your heart, body and mind. Learn to love and take care of yourself so you do feel good enough! Buy yourself flowers; feed yourself nourishing food; drink lots of water for energy and vitality; see people you love regularly; travel and have fun; do work you love and trust your intuition and you'll maintain a zest for life not even the Universe can deny!
