Last week, I told part of my story about the wake-up call that forced me to get honest with myself and acknowledge that I had dreams and life goals that were important to me. I reached a point in my life where I had to get honest about the fact that I wasn’t doing the work I felt I was put on Earth to do.
And it’s important that you learn from my mistake.
You see, I was in DENIAL. Here’s why… I made up all sorts of stories about why I didn’t have the time, or the money, or that my hopes and dreams were less important than everyone else around me. I thought I was being selfless by putting everyone else’s needs first. I thought it was noble.
But when I got really honest with myself, I realized that all of those ‘stories’ where B.S. They were nothing more than excuses. And worst of all, I finally realized that all those excuses had taken a very ugly toll on my self-esteem.
Every time I thought about my dreams of creating a business that made a difference in the world… and every time I came up with a story or excuse why I couldn’t take even the first tiny baby step toward that goal, my self-esteem took a little hit each time. And every time my self-esteem took a hit, so did my level of self-empowerment.
And when you add up all those excuses over all those years, and all the little chips to my self-esteem, I bet you can guess what happened?
By the time I finally got honest with myself, I was in a place of total despair and completely disempowered state.
Do you ever feel like that? Each time you think about your dreams, and then you say to yourself “forget about it”, does that bring you down? Do you get to the point where you feel like you are at a complete state of powerlessness?
If so, then realize that this is the price you are paying for buying into your own B.S. You are listening to your own stories and excuses and it is costing you dearly.
If there are only 2 things you learn from this blog, know this!
- Choosing to stay in denial is costing you not only money and freedom, but also your self-esteem and peace of mind
- Staying in denial is a CHOICE! It’s time to make another choice!
And that is the saddest part of it all. Every day I talk with people who are down and feel powerless.
And if you can get really honest with yourself… and I mean painfully honest, like I did… then you KNOW that these excuses are NOT REAL. And worst of all, allowing yourself to think they are is only costing you your self-esteem and self-empowerment.
Any day that you want, you can turn each and every disempowering story into a powerful, life-affirming, self-esteem building statement. So let’s start now. Get out a sheet of paper. Draw a line straight down the middle. On the left side, write out every excuse and story you have. I don’t have the money… time… knowledge… whatever… Write them all down.
Now… down the right side, rewrite each one of those statements into a powerful question. Start each question with “What are 3 ways that I can… find the time… get the money… get the knowledge, etc.?”
