Are you making the impossible, possible or have you given in to a life of doom, gloom and struggle?
What if the whole purpose of life, your living legacy or will, is the will, strength and determination to live your best life?
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t… you’re right.”
Let me ask you something.
If there was ONE thing, one LEGACY you could teach – what would it be?
If you could tell the World ONE thing, what would it be?
Every single one of us has something amazing inside of us that needs to be shared with the world. The only thing holding is back whether we “think we can or can’t.”
Over the last few months, I’ve been developing the ability to rest in the challenge, to bump up against the barrier and be willing to stay there raw, rough and vulnerable – to experience and observe the discomfort, the “not knowing”.
Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t been sitting back on my laurels.
I’ve been showing up, doing the work in my personal life, social life, and professional life.
But I’m developing a more quiet, patient, discerning presence – observing what’s unfolding, where there’s flow, what the Universe/God is in the drivers seat, instead of me thinking I have to go it alone – grasping at a quick fix “solution” to calm my anxiety about “not being there yet”.
Does any of this ring a bell for you? I imagine it does . . .
Let’s look at how we can apply this more consistently:
1. Notice if you have this tendency to jump to the solution and busy yourself with activity in order to have the feeling that you’re doing something and making progress.
2. Take out a journal and sit with your challenge i a space of fertile, open listening.
Begin exploring – what is the actual challenge?
How can you be very, very specific about it?
Are you just missing some specific resources or information?
Or are you struggling with some tension or discomfort within yourself and your business?
Is it still that fear of not having approval?
Get to the deep dark discomfort, the shadows.
And just sit there…..
You don’t have to figure out, fix it, dismantle it, just be willing to observe and bring awareness.
Often the actual “barrier” that we think we’re trying to overcome, is our own discomfort or anxiety.
Interestingly, fighting against that discomfort and anxiety heightens it.
3. Practice patient observation.
As you begin to see your actual barriers and resist the urge to grasp at feeble solutions to busy yourself, you can hold yourself in that tension and go about your day with keen observation.
What coincidences are showing up?
What is that person really communicating to you?
Look around you with a curiosity of the innocent child. Would you give yourself permission to say yes to the willingness to receive…… more insight, wisdom, encouragement, direction, and resources?
And have no point of view how they show up?
What I know to be true is that it never looks like you think, and it never show us the way you think it will! But… if you breathe, lean in to that quiet God wink, the subtle nudge you will receive what you are asking for.
It’s so easy to become obsessed with the result, the benefit, the solution (this is what marketing is all about, so you are surrounded by these messages whether you know it or not).
The thing is, what I’ve discovered is that being willing to not know, to not have the solution, to let go of the controls and to have the patience, trust and confidence in the Divine, in God, has opened up entirely new (and exciting) possibilities in myself, my relationship, and my career.
Old wounds that have driven me to strive, compete, judge, and criticize are being consistently healed, freeing me to be more fully myself and to more authentically assist my clients from a deeper place of connection, compassion and love.
I have no idea where this will lead or what exactly is unfolding.
And I am, surprisingly, so totally calm, present and alright with that.
I intend to fully receive and utilize each and every opportunity that comes my way so that I can positively impact and empower more women who come to me.
And as I fumble through the messy bits, be willing to be wrong about everything, expand, grow and learn, I know I will become my own living legacy and amplify all of that, facilitate
= make easier, that which is possible to reach my target of 1 million womens voices rising.
What a humbling and potent opportunity we have to grow together in this life and create a sustainable future where it is a win win for everyone. . .
So, now I want to hear from you!
What’s your experience with addressing resistance, being a ‘Pro” and moving toward solutions?
(I highly suggest you read one of my favorite books Turning Pro – by James Pressfield)
Do you grasp at conclusions to come to “solutions”, that actually are distractors that keep you from staying present with your body and its subtle messages (albeit uncomfortable at times) that would give you back all of you in your true nature?
How could you practice this approach?
