The Wall of Doubt

Every moment of every day, you decide what your future will look like. There is a voice inside your heart right now that is letting you know exactly what it wants. It may be a gentle whisper, it may be a relentless scream, but it’s there….listen…Can you hear it?

When you act on that little voice, everything in the world feels right. That is until you hit the Wall of Doubt. The Wall of Doubt is invisible to the eye and crippling to the soul. It is the only REAL obstacle you will face on your journey to fulfillment.

The Wall of Doubt is the window to shattered dreams. There is no going around it, no avoiding it, no going over it, or under it. You must go through it.

Although The Wall of Doubt has many faces, it is nothing more than self-doubt manifested as misinterpreted discouragement in the words of others, misunderstood “signs” from above, and ill-perceived mistakes.

Let your mistakes be your motivation

As Chris and Janet Attwood said in The Passion Test “there are only three things holding you back; false beliefs, false concepts, and false ideas – which is really only one”. Make no mistake, the only one standing between you and success is YOU.

When you feel like the world is against you, consider this:

No matter what you do with your life, no matter what decisions you make, people will judge you. There’s no escaping it. Some will agree with your decisions, some will not. Some will celebrate your victories, some will not. Some will be sad when you are down, some will not. Succeed or fail, mistake or not, the fact is that it’s just not possible to please every one all the time. Try to please everyone and you are sure to fail 100% of the time. Why waste time worrying about the opinions of others? When you experience authentic joy, that joy will spill outside of you and onto every person in your life. Why not focus on that instead?

Remember This:

Things are rarely as they seem. When you find yourself in the midst of the judgement of others (especially from those you love), try to remember that although debilitating,  it may be coming from a place of love and protection. You can’t chase your dreams while living inside your comfort zone. When you step outside your comfort zone, you inevitably take those you love right outside of theirs. Of course they will kick up a fuss! Everyone’s irritable outside their zone, throw in the treat of worry for you and…well, now you’ve done it! When those you love come off as less than supportive, pay close attention. It’s likely not the lack of encouragement that is upsetting. More times than not it’s because the words we are hearing from them reflect the doubt we have in our own minds.

Stay true to that little voice inside your heart. Stand strong in face of doubt. Have faith and keep moving forward. Go ahead, Unleash your inner superstar!

You are a star!

Embrace Your Awesomeness!

New Perspective, New Results

Brand New Year, brand new resolutions, same old outcome?

Are you setting yourself up for failure or success?

Let’s face it; at the best of times, we are our own worst critics. When we find ourselves genuinely looking to change, we’re even harder on ourselves; judging, insulting, discouraging….any of this sounding familiar? Need a different perspective?

“When you want something you’ve never had, you’ve got to do something you’ve never done.”

Don’t underestimate the power of clarity. When you are clear, you will invevitably begin to see results.

What exactly is your goal? The more clear your answer to this question, the better your chances for success. Be specific and write it down. What does achieving your goal mean to you? How would it change your daily living? How will you know when you’ve reached your goal? Are there any measurable markers or checkpoints? What’s your plan of action? How long should it take before you can realistically expect to see results?

Everyday you are faced with countless decisions to make. When faced with a choice, consciously and consistently choose in favor of your desired outcome.

Cut yourself some slack, you’re human. There’s no escaping it. Accept it and embrace it. 

Change is a journey, allow yourself time to succeed.

So many people seem to be under the mistaken assumption that January 1st the sacred gateway to infinite possibilities. Why the prejudice against all the other dates?

If you slip up on January 3rd, January 4th is a surprisingly great date for wonderful new beginnings. In fact, if you slip up January 4th at 4:00, 5:00 is another great place to start 🙂 so try not to be so hard on yourself.

You have it in you to succeed. You have it in you to be all that you choose to be. You’ve got this! Just keep moving forward and don’t forget to …

Embrace your awesomeness!

It’s your turn – Got any successful resolution stories to share? What do you do to keep yourself on track?
