How easy is it to allow your ego to take over and supply you with "evidence" that your heart-based and passion driven idea is just silly? How easy is it to let ego come in and completely dismantle your inspired idea and keep you playing safe and small, within the confines of your comfort zone?
I think we can all agree that it is very easy...and that is where the work lies. It's in catching those limiting thoughts and consciously choosing to stop them and paralyze them in their tracks. This is key because our fundamental beliefs about what is possible in our lives (career, money, health and relationships) is based upon the repetitive thoughts we think.
So ask yourself, are you spending more time arguing for your limitations by providing your brain "evidence" why you cannot do something. Or are you choosing to support your dreams and ambitions by intentionally choosing to think thoughts that provide you with evidence things are and will work out in your favour?
On a personal note, I provided my resignation letter to my corporate employer, who paid me $7,100/mo (not including the golden pension and bonuses) at the beginning of March 2017 with FULL KNOWLEDGE I had not one but TWO mortgages to start paying all by myself by April 1st (my tenants from my rental property told me they were moving out March 31st). Not only that, I had a credit card payment coming up for a coaching program that I had enrolled in the month prior that cost me a $10 thousand dollars Canadian!
You may ask yourself, why would I quit the financial security at such a financially taxing time? What sane person would do such a thing? I was launching my private coaching practice in April but I had no so-called evidence it was going to match my corporate employer's salary. And I most definitely had no hard evidence I was going to DOUBLE my corporate salary within 9 months of unhooking myself from that soul-sucking job...but I did just that #boom!
What I had was more powerful. I had belief that no matter what, I was going to be successful AF. How did I develop such a resilient belief system? I only provided myself with evidence that I was going to be successfull. I did not allow limiting thoughts to derail my soul purpose and drive. I prioritized keeping my vibration high knowing I attract what I AM. I consciously spent time ruminating in how and why things were going to work out for me. I believed, and still do, that the Universe and a higher power wants to support me fulfill my deepest desires and wildest dreams in this life.
And because I believed it before I could see it, I attracted what I envisioned to me.
I share to showcase that this is possible for you too. I could have spent countless more months and years at my corporate job supplying myself with reasons why I had to financially. . and trust me, there would have always been another excuse to put my dream on the back burner of life.
Life is so short and we can live it in a mediocre, auto-pilot kind of way. Or we can live it like we mean it & open ourselves up to the countless possible (amazing) outcomes that are equally available to every. single. one of us.
