In our society, it’s either shaming you or telling you why you’re not good enough. Does your family constantly compare you to someone else? Why can’t you be more like so and so? If these things are happening in your life. It might be time to take back your personal power. Take a close look at who is in your inner circle? Are they team you or they trying to bring you down. Are you actually trying to take responsibility for your life or playing the victim? There is a difference, one is allowing things to happen to you. The other is actually participating in your life. That means taking classes or making changes in yourself to get closer to your goals. Are you trying to take the steps to get to your destination in life?
Just remember there are many paths to get to that destination. Sometimes, timing isn’t right or we need to get more information to successfully reach those goals. If you make a mistake it’s not the end of the world. You just have to look at or have someone whose done it before look at your steps to help you discover where you went off the rails and how to successfully make changes so that doesn’t happen again. When someone says that you’re not perfect. Remind them that neither is nature. That is why it is so perfect, it is those imperfections that make everyone a unique individual.
It is what makes us interesting and makes our life exciting. Next time you want to know how someone did something. You might want to read their biography or books on what you’re trying to achieve. Just make sure they are really successful and not just selling books about something they’ve never achieved. If you get push back on your dream. See where it allows your to have your wins. Sometimes it will be one step at a time. A lot of the times there are things that we don’t know; but need to learn before we can be successful at the next step.
Whatever your path and journey. Remember to check in on how you feel. That is the best barometer on where you’ve gone off the rails and if your still on the right track! If you let fear immobilize you, you will fail before you even have started. That being said there times when you should listen. If you feel sick to your stomach about a decision. Listen and don’t push through. It is a warning to keep you from going off the tracks.
