How do you get past the same mental hurdles that prevent you from making a change in your life?
Some reasons that hold you back, and what to do about them.
What keeps you stuck in a rut:
I get it, life is hard and change is both scary and uncomfortable. In fact staying in the rut you're in makes sense from an instinctual point of view.
As humans we are programmed to seek pleasure and avoid pain.
Safety and security are to be sought out, it's one way we avoid pain.
But if you're miserable... you're not exactly avoiding pain, are you?
What you need to understand is this:
Our biggest regrets are not in our actions, but in our inactions.
It's the things we wish we could re-do, and the chances not taken, that we regret.
If you keep settling for an "okay" life, you'll reach a point where you've missed out on your own life, on chasing your dreams; of being truly happy and feeling fulfilled.
The potential of fulfillment and pleasure lies in expressing your full capacity for growth.
What is potential?
Potential = Dormant Power
Potential is the acorn that holds within it the promise of a mighty oak.
There are forces that reside deep within you, that have not been weathered down by life, that will astound you, once tapped into and brought into action.
So... how to deal with these hurdles:
Most importantly, trust deeply in yourself, in your abilities.
Trust the process.
The act of planting a seed is an act of faith. The end result will be worth it.
You're amazing. You know you are.
You're where you are right now because you're extraordinary, tenacious, determined and powerful.
