Do you sometimes feel that you are not at your full potential?
There is a brilliant quote by Marianne Williamson which I absolutely love:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves: “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be?”
I resonate so much with this. As I thought I was always afraid of failure and looking bad for not accomplishing my goals. When in fact I really was afraid of success. How does it feel? What would I do then? Could I handle the overwhelm?
I came to the conclusion that I rather be overwhelmed with success than failure. That I am rather not sure how to handle the feeling of being truly and utterly myself, doing what I love and living life on my own terms than the feeling of being stuck and lost.
Have you ever at some point in your life shrunk yourself in order to not make someone else insecure or unhappy? It is our birthright to shine and step out into our greatness! And actually, it makes life so much more effortlessly.
It is important to become aware of what is going on, especially on these 3 major things:
- Wanting to fit in
In order to feel accepted we shrink ourselves and often do things we are not truly aligned with. I myself did that almost my entire life.
But let me tell you this: The connection you have with yourself is the most important thing in life. And this is absolutely not possible when you are trying to please everyone.When you step into who you really are you will inspire others, so so much! Become conscious in your everyday life where you act in a certain way or do something that you don’t truly want to do, just so others are happy.
Trust me, there is nothing more sexier and more inspirational than a person who is in their absolute truth and unapologetic her,-or himself.
This will rob you off big time! The constant self sabotage we are going through, the feeling and thought we are not good enough, not tall enough, not pretty enough or what else enough. Consciously but more often subconsciously. When you are in your true and full brilliance you are present and are able to make mindful, powerful decisions. The role of your subconscious mind is to “keep you save” and keep you in your past, which will lead into fear whenever you want to strive for more or something different.It constantly is looking for a problem or catch whenever something “seems to good to be true”. Listen to your gut instead, as whenever you have this tiny little spark, this feeling that this could be something amazing (even though you have not just figured it out yet), it is right and about time to persue it.
Being judgmental towards others and yourself keeps you closed and stops you from really stepping into your power. We don’t always have to wait for someone else’s permission to do something, neither do we always need to judge others on their actions.Being judgemental is really more like putting a mirror in front of yourself. Because oftentimes the things we criticise about another person are the things that we are not happy or unsatisfied with in our own life.
“who is she to do that?” Well, who is she not? As well as, who are YOU not to do it?Communication is key. Always. Period. Full bold stop. But it has to be the right kind of communication. Learn to speak and communicate from your heart instead of your head. Because then you are able to reach the heart and see that every problem or judgement is really not as big.
