I know I have.
Not because I didn’t know what I needed to do. That’s usually the last of my issues – unless I’m dealing with something very new to me.
But I mean…we all have access to Google these days, right? It feels like it’s almost impossible to NOT find info about almost anything you can think of.
So, going back to failed goal-setting, a combination of facts can weigh on results (it surely did for me):
- The feeling of HAVING to do something – my mind would just rebel against the idea. Hello, procrastination!
- Believing my own excuses (elegantly dressed up in the “reasons why I can’t do such and such” fashion style)
- Plus: some mindset issues around what I thought I could actually accomplish
- AND, at other times, an energetic blockage of sort, which we all might encounter on our way, here and there
Over and over I tried until, thanks to a combination of tools and practices, I finally cracked my own code and proceeded even despite blocks, self-doubts, and fears of any kind.
Can you relate?
If traditional methods and such haven’t worked for you, don’t you throw in the towel just yet. If it’s September, don’t you hide behind the: “I’ll wait for January 1st to start” excuse.
Before you ditch your goals, projects, and ideas for a bright future, please consider this:
You can start a new year any day of the year. Here’s how.
PROBLEM: You’re not where you think you should be by now.
CURE: It’s ok. Forgive yourself, and go ahead.
PROBLEM: You don’t know if it’s the right thing for you to do, or pursue.
CURE: If you’re wondering about that, there’s a chance it might not be. However, since we all doubt ourselves and our knowingness at times, don’t cross it over in a hurry.
If you’re doing something because “they” are and are being successful at it, chances are you might just be following a trend. And we all know how trends end.
But if you’re feeling plain vanilla about it, in other words, if there’s NO BURNING PASSION underneath, most likely, it’s not the right thing for you. Reconsider everything but from a soul-centered perspective. And take my passion test here.
PROBLEM: You just really doubt yourself most of the time.
CURE: Pause. Take a step back to connect to your heart, to who you really are. This is a major step we need to take more than once in life, even if we’re feeling really passionate about something.
I’ll talk about this and much more during the calls I’ll be offering starting April 26th.
