You Are Worthy: A Pep Talk for My Soul-Centered Friends

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I’m in serious need of a pep talk because I’m feeling like I’m not worthy of my goals. So, if that applies to you, here you go!

If you want a better life you have to do it for yourself:  seriously, YOU are worthy of all the greatness you can imagine.

I see you there wanting more for your life but not taking action. You’ve decided to stick it out in your comfort zone rather than stretching for more.

Seriously though…Inaction is a decision.

Without a doubt, you are your best project in life. Are you consciously working on it, or are you neglecting it? Great lives, health, abundance, peace rarely comes by chance.

 

If you ain’t growin’…you’re dying!

What are you waiting for?! The time is NOW! Decide to make the change.

As one of my favorite authors, Jen Sincero, said:

“You need to go from {wanting} to change your life to {deciding} to change your life. Wanting can be done sitting on the couch with a bong in your hand and a travel magazine in your lap. Deciding means jumping in all the way, doing whatever it takes, and going after your dreams with the tenacity of a dateless cheerleader a week before prom night.”

So ask yourself…are you doing more wanting of changing or deciding to make it happen?

Perfection is the enemy of progress…there’s no such thing as a perfect time to make a change. To take a chance. To go for what you truly want. It’s time to get out of your head and get moving!!!

Don’t get trapped by the need to plan. To think through all the details. Things rarely go according to plans anyhow…so spending precious time planning out every detail, every move is an exercise in futility since you’ll have to change and adapt once you get started…that is, if you ever get started.

 

It’s not who you are that holds you back. It’s who you think you’re not.

And we usually view ourselves in the rear view mirror, defining ourselves because of our pasts rather than our potential for the future.

I love this quote from Brian L. Weiss:

“Forgive the past. It is over. Learn from it and let go. People are constantly changing and growing. Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now. Your relationship is always alive and changing.”

Maybe you think that you’re not ready. Not good enough. Not worthy of the better life you desire. You can’t do it because [fill in the blank with your excuse]. You don’t have the resources. Maybe you aren’t sure you should. You’ve failed before. What will they think? What will they say?

These are all thoughts and the great news is that thought can be changed. They can be ignored. When we want to make a change our brain is literally designed to try and stop us and it will throw fear and limiting beliefs our way to try and make us stay in our comfort zone.

 

For what? For fear that we might fail?

Isn’t staying exactly where you are —  in that space desiring more and not going after it — truly more of a failure?  For letting another day of life pass you by not going after what you truly want? For allowing other people’s expectations to have more power over your choices than your own?

“I’m not promising that change is easy. It takes courage to mold your life the way you want it to be. There are all sorts of real and imagined obstacles that get in the way. They need not deter you.”  – Susan Jeffers

Jack Canfield teaches that the three main obstacles to success are considerations, fears and roadblocks. Considerations are thoughts that surface when you decide to make a change that include all the reasons why you shouldn’t attempt your goal, all the reasons why it would be impossible to change. Fears are the feelings that surface, but are a normal part of the process. You don’t have to buy into them or allow them to deter you. Roadblocks are the purely external obstacles that you need to deal with to move forward. Some people allow considerations, fears, and roadblocks to be excuses to either not start or to quit along the way. Successful people recognize that considerations, fears and roadblocks are all part of the change process. They expect and anticipate them and regroup as necessary to follow through with the change they seek.

 

Go All In AND Surrender!!!

SO MUCH AWESOME is on the other side of making the decision to go for your dreams NO MATTER WHAT!!!

But you can’t half ass change. It just doesn’t work. How bad do you really want it? The good news is that you don’t have to be 100% all in to start. You just need to be 51% committed, because at 51% there’s action. So, what do you need to do to get to 51% and start taking action? Action creates momentum, excitement, and results!

 

Ditch the Baggage.

By releasing the past you can allow yourself to be present in the now, all that there truly is. Just because something always has doesn’t mean that it always will.

“There are cycles of success, when things come to you and thrive, and cycles of failure, when they wither or disintegrate and you have to let them go in order to make room for new things to arise, or for transformation to happen. If you cling and resist at that point, it means you are refusing to go with the flow of life, and you will suffer.” – Eckhart Tolle

Pain – no matter if it is physical, emotional or spiritual – comes from our resistance to suffering. Often change comes with some suffering, but temporary discomfort better than resolving to be stuck in the pain of inaction and self-doubt all the time.

 

It’s Probably Well Beyond Time…

At the height of my struggle with chronic illness I was so sick of being sick all the time, more than tired of being tired all the time. I KNEW there had to be a better way of life for me.  With some work on my mindset and some lifestyle changes I was able turn things around. I know without a doubt that my improved my quality of life was because I was finally willing to make these changes.

But I allowed myself to be miserable for almost 10 years. TEN YEARS!! Mostly because I was scared. I had a hard time imaging my life without the pain. Without the hurt. Without the discomfort. Because I imagined that it would be harder to change than to stay trapped in the pain. That I wasn’t worthy of more, better. Which was so, so, so, so ridiculous.

Most of what I feared never came true, in fact, things are way better than I could have ever imagined. And now it’s hard not to look back at that gal from many years ago and not yell and scream at her for not deciding to change sooner. But I have learned to look back at her with love, because she helped me become the person I am today.

Making life changes isn’t always the easiest, but on the other side of the effort is the sweet reward you’re looking for.

 

YOU ARE WORTHY.

YOU are worthy. We are all born worthy and remain worthy. We come from love and infinite possibility.

If you’re ready to find a better way, get after it.

If you’re not sure how to start or what it is you truly love, I’d love to help you on your journey.

It’s not too late to design your dream life!

I want to finish with this beautiful thought from Louise Hay:

“There is no need to struggle to be better. All you need to do is to love yourself more today than yesterday and to treat yourself as someone who is deeply loved. Love is the nourishment that humans need to fulfill their greatness. As you learn to love yourself more, you learn to love everyone more. Together we lovingly nourish an evermore beautiful world. We are all healed, and the planet is healed, too. With joy, we recognize our perfection and the perfection of Life. And so it is.”

Creating a better life is all about making the decision that you are worthy of loving yourself more each day than the last.
