“The only thing I have to release in order to get what I want is my story about why I can’t have it.”
I have told people what I wanted and immediatly given them the reasons why I can’t have it.
“I want to __________(move, quit, do this thing, take this class, buy that, contact this person, try a new thing) but I can’t because…”
The excuses are endless: money, fears, skill level, your passion, the government, guilt, taxes, family, work…
It is frustrating for me to think back on how many times I have done this in my life. Excuses are fears and self-doubt talking. Any excuse is self-limiting. Let them go, they aren’t serving you. There are a million reasons why certain things shouldn’t have been able to happen in my life and they happened anyway. Don’t let your story get in your way.
Nothing can change if we are too busy holding on to our stories of why we can’t. Watch the way you speak to friends and family over the next week, catch yourself when you cling to an “I can’t because story.” Try stating what you want, followed by “..and I am excited and open for the opportunities that will allow it.”
YOU WILL AND YOU CAN FIGURE OUT A WAY TO MAKE YOUR IT HAPPEN
