What story are you telling yourself that is holding you back in life? What if the truth was that you could be, do, or have anything you dreamed of? What if it were true that we all tell ourselves stories about what’s not possible in life because it seems our need for love, connection and certainty is being met by staying small?
Most people are happy for you at first if you shine, but if you shine too brightly, they start to not like you. Not because you have done anything wrong, but because they get jealous of your success – because it is a reflection of their own failure. We tend to get jealous of others when they have something we wish we had – so when we become successful, we become a target for jealously from others.
How far you will go in life is usually based on the 5 people we spend the most amount of time with. If success is what we are after the goal is to make those declarations and shine our light loudly and proudly. It’s important to understand that people will love and bond over our empowerment. It just may mean we have to redefine our current relationships, it also may mean that we have to let go of some, too. Being around toxic people brings us down, loving and being loved brings us up.
Many times we get our thoughts and opinions about Life, not from ourselves, but from others, from advertisements or the media. So what thoughts do you have about what’s possible in your life? The thoughts and story you tell about your life will come true because when we believe something, we act on it and that action produces a result.
If you want to live your dreams, if you want to grow, love and experience life to the fullest, then it’s vital to begin telling a new and empowering story. Think your own thoughts and consciously surround yourself with people who support and approve of your empowerment. Then do the same thing to the people in your life and celebrate each other’s successes and choose to be in partnerships and relationships that build us up instead of keeping us down.
