Have you ever wondered why some people seem to be extremely successful in a very short period of time while you or others keep struggling with the same issues over and over again?
What is it that makes some adaptable to change while others tightly hang on to the old – staying stuck in unwanted situations like uninspiring jobs, non-functional relationships, dreadful cities or family arguments that won’t come to a resolution if all stays the same..
The biggest reason I have found so far is this bold and confronting truth: people want the results – the growth, fame and fortune – but not the change.
So there are moodboards, affirmations, many dollars spent on trainings, workshops and courses on ‘how to reach…’ And even though people follow the steps and start out enthusiastically in the beginning, after a while the discipline and power start to slack. The old pattern takes over again and the search for ‘the next shiny object’ is on its way…
Now what if you – in this time of great collective change – want to make a big shift? Then what will be needed this time to really stick to your plan and make it work? To be one of those steady growing successful people making a big impact on the lives of others?
Succes requires you to be willing to change. A willingness that makes you think about who you need to BE in order to fulfill your destiny.
What old patterns, beliefs, habits do you need to let go of?
What unresolved issues amongst friends and family needs to be forgiven?
Growth means change. So re-invent yourself.
Find new ways of being that match the new, successful you.
Where are you holding back your power, and how can you reclaim it?
Stepping back – observing the process – allowing grace and inspiration to be your guides along the way – is an important part of this work too.
Trusting your higher self and the universe have come up with a plan that quite likely is even better than what you can simply imagine..
But it’s also about taking the small practical steps that are in alignment with your bigger vision, embodying the growth you aspire.
In a time of great change it is easy to get lost in all that is not ready yet, not perfect yet, not exactly as wanted. It is easy to focus on what is wrong with ourselves, others or the world. But this isn’t helpful. Quite likely this focussing on all that isn’t perfect yet will drive you back into the old, non-functional ways of before.
Many of us are more comfortable with their known discomforts than with the unknown future.
Beating yourself up about all you haven’t reached yet is not going to help either.
A gentle, loving attitude towards yourself and the process is needed most.
Change is ‘work in progress’. It is constantly focussing on where you are going, imagining your ‘future self’ embodying a new life.
To manifest the gold you aspire you need to embrace the ‘lead’ that is here: The shadow, the moments you still hand over your power to others and forget to believe in yourself.
Allow the alchemy of change to occur by taking a closer look at these moments. Be mindful. Recognize the pattern, and choose to act differently.
Then ask yourself:
Where in my body am I holding back my wholeness and true self?
Where am I not expressing my power yet?
Which parts of me need healing right now in order to be able to move into the next step?
By taking a new course when challenging times happen you powerfully act from the new you. When you shift, others will shift too.
Trust the process.
Are you willing to put in the work?
Are you willing to be with the discomforts of growth?
I know for sure if you do, you will reap the benefits!
Do you want to take this journey to the next level?
