Have you ever looked at a goal or project and said this is impossible? I know I have. I felt so overwhelmed that it just seemed too big to accomplish, it seemed impossible.
Clinging to the notion that something’s not possible is arguing in favor of your limitations, and if you argue in favor of limitations guess what? You get to keep them.
There’s only one way to get through the fog of fear and that’s to transform it into the clarity of exhilaration.
Did you know that fear is excitement without breath? Isn’t that a definition that turns the feelings under the word from pure negativity into a whole new feeling?
So when I notice the emotion of fear showing up I can stop a moment and say, is this a fear that is a warning of danger or is this a fear of excitement? If this is excitement I just need to breathe correctly to transform it even fuller. I can then move it even higher up on the vibrational scale to become exhilaration.
While breaking through the blocks of fear are important and thrilling, it’s the subsequent integration of the breakthrough of that fear into your daily life that really allows the change to be permanent.
Lets take being a public speaker as an example. Studies reflect that fear of public speaking is one of the most common fears that we collectively have. So since we know that this isn’t a fear to protect us from danger, we now know it is actually excitement. It is excitement to share your life changing message. With some nice deep breaths and grounding you can even become exhilarated to share your message.
Can you see how integrating this belief would make you a more relaxed speaker that is able to fully engage your audience and inspire them with your message?
The hidden barriers or blocks we have all seem real and true, but they are based on beliefs about ourselves that aren’t true. The fact that we unconsciously hold them to be true is what holds us back. Once we shine awareness on it we can release it, integrate it and change our life.
What is one fear based belief that you can recognize today? How can you shift the vibration from fear to excitement and then further shift to exhilaration?
And so it is, and so it is with ease.
Growth is change. If you aren’t growing, you’re decaying, which is also change. Since change is inescapable either way, why wouldn’t you want your changes to be as positive as possible?
The first buds of spring make my heart sing and want to dance
The summer signals a change from working hard, to being able to slow down and relax and play
The first color of autumn tells us me that the nights are getting longer and winter is on its way
The first snowfall reminds me of being a kid and throwing a snowball and making snow angels and having so much fun wearing socks as gloves!
Change is good thing – welcome it into your life with love and wonder and you will live an amazing life
Most of us operate from the belief that effort is the same as accomplishment. We put in countless hours at work, trying to keep up with the workload and feel unappreciated. What is interesting is that if we had to come up with one real accomplishment, we wouldn’t be able to name it.
We are like the hampster on the wheel, looking good to ourselves because we are keeping it spinning, but we are just going nowhere fast. Being busy and being successful do not correlate to each other. At some point in our life we wake up and wonder what we are doing.
We know we are not where we planned to be, but the truth is we (at least me anyway) really never had a true destination, we just followed the road where it was leading us.
So what do you do when you wake up? Plan something, anything and then implement it. I always liked Jack Canfields description of the headlights on the car driving down a dark road, you can only see so many feet in front of you at a time. Look at what you see and actually make a decision about it and then implement it. You may change directions once you get a ways down the road because you determine that this road will not take you where you want to go. U-turns are ok!
The important thing to remember is that later you will find that the road you went down will provide you with information that you needed, you just didn’t know it was part of your foundation. If you are like me, you may not know exactly what you are building, but it is fun, it is exciting, and you are learning great things along the way. Much better than just running on the hampster wheel!
From Simple Truths, about time:
1) Nobody can manage time. But you can manage things that take up your time.
2) Time is expensive. 80% of our day is spent on things or people that only bring us 2% of our results.
3) Time is perishable. It cannot be saved for later use.
4) Time is measurable. Everybody has the same amount. It is not how much time you have; it is how much you use.
5) Time is irreplaceable. We never make back time once it is gone.
6) You have enough time for anything in the world, if it ranks high enough among your priorities
In December we look back at what we’ve accomplished. In the end, it isn’t about completing goals, it’s about the changes we made this year. While I have some things that I would like to finish in December, what I am proud of is that I have grown so much this past year in fine tuning who I want to be in this life. Thanks goes out to all of you for being in my life with all of your great ideas and encouragement.

From the Gratitude Log today I got the quote: “Aim for a 1% improvement every single day.” Thinking about this reminds me that we look at a change that we want to make and get overwhelmed by the entirety of it. But 1% is a very small number and we can do that. So if I lose 1% of the weight that I want to lose each week, I can acheive that goal much easier than thinking about the whole enchilada!
Remember KISS (keep it simple, stupid)? Why do we make our challenges so big that we think we need to be rescued? Usually the solution is more simple than we want to believe. Is it because we like the drama of a complicated burden ridden life? Do we crave validation, sympathy and the big rescue? Throw that thinking in the trash & here is to the simple life!
Take out a piece of paper and draw a line down the middle. On one side write down all of the reasons why you haven’t yet accomplished this years goals. On the other side write down all of the reasons why you can accomplish your goals. Until the “can” list exceeds the “can’t” list you won’t achieve those goals. Build up that small inner voice to drowns out the negative voice and you will be successful.
To place your dreams before a crowd is to risk rejection. To try achieve that dream risks failure. If we don’t take risks, then we do, have & become nothing. We take on the even greater risk of having a half lived life in despair. Without taking the risk we cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love or live. Isn’t it better to try & fail, than to say I was going to but (fill in the blank with your current excuse)?
