You could be a dentist, a lawyer, an author, teacher, scientist, engineer, or a researcher in some field…BUT… if you don’t know how to expand love, contentment and happiness then all your degrees, all your skills and knowledge don’t matter much at all. You’re probably still messing up your life.
1.Missing the important lessons
Sometimes the hardest part of our journey is overcoming the false beliefs we’ve been fed about what makes a successful, happy life.
Most of us learned that the more money, more ‘stuff’ or fame and recognition we had, the more successful we were.
Money is necessary….we all need it to survive…but surviving is barely living…we need more, we need to thrive.
So what about those other areas of life? The ones that bring love, joy peace and fulfillment? The ones that help us thrive.
Where were those lessons? The important ones that teach us how the thoughts we think and the feelings we feel affect every minute of our lives?
2.Giving up the sheep state of mind
The lessons we all took to heart were to be afraid of being judged and found wanting, or worse totally rejected. We learned to be more concerned with what ‘they’ think about us than how we feel about ourselves. Everything we need to truly thrive in this world became dependent on the approval of someone else.
Our beliefs in ourselves, our confidence, or our self-worth tend to remain in the hands of others to this day.
You don’t have to follow these rules You’re not a sheep. It’s messing up your life.
The truth is that every second you spend needing validation from others, and doubting your own worth is a tragedy. Time thrown away. Make today a fresh start and don’t be scared to choose new happier ideas and thoughts.
3.Stepping into your discomfort zone and out of the messing up your life zone
It’s time to learn who you really are. Right now you only know what they’ve told you about who you are.
Challenges are part of what makes life interesting and overcoming them makes life rewarding and as you take responsibility for your life and set new priorities you’re giving yourself a gift. The gift of positive changes.
It’s not always comfortable facing any kind of challenge, but this one will be so worth it. This challenge washes away the ashes of the past, that keep messing up your life.
Riding the emotional waves of change is never easy…but as you become more aware of who you really are…your strength and belief in yourself will grow. And your tendency to keep messing up your life will diminish.
We all need peace of mind and contentment; inner happiness and joy, but how many of us make them a priority?
The best part of your life begins on the day you decide to set goals or invest in learning to achieve these. If you want your life to mean anything then please don’t put all your focus on your career or financial goals. This isn’t the path to being truly fulfilled or fully successful.
Are you ready to love yourself enough to set a new priority? Because the biggest struggle in life is the struggle to overcome conditioned thinking, to let go of the past and to accept and embrace yourself just as you are. And then you can stop discrediting yourself for who you haven’t yet become.
Because while you’re carrying all that mental baggage you’re an unwitting participant in sabotaging your true success and happiness.
Believe with all your heart that you can…
And push through those barriers that keep messing up your life. Learn to be your best friend and choose what’s best for you, not what others tell you is best.
It’s time to know how truly spectacular you are.
Encourage one another.
