YOU MIGHT THINK YOU NEED MORE TIME TO FOLLOW YOUR HEART…
But then, when you get that extra time, you might think you need more CLARITY.
But when you get the clarity, you start thinking you need more MONEY.
But even with the money, you still don’t start because you think you need more COURAGE.
And deeper and deeper you go, until you realize it was not time, or clarity, or money you needed… all you needed was the courage to start.
Self-doubt is tricky. It makes you blame other things for the reason you aren’t starting on your dreams — when in truth, it is often at the center of it all.
Self-doubt will tell you that you can’t do it, you aren’t ready, you don’t have the capacity, you need more things to align first — and on and on. It will make you look out there — when it is hiding at the root of it all.
Even when you get everything you think you need in order to begin — even with unlimited time, clarity, and money — you may find yourself paralyzed still… until you have decided you are ready to face your fears.
And these fears were there all along — way before you had the time, clarity, and means — the fears were bubbling away, hiding beneath it all.
Dive deeper into the root of it all — look your fears in the eye, face the harshest thoughts about yourself… do this inner work first, because as you clear the fears, the way will also clear.
As you rise above your fears, everything else that you think you need will start coming in… and you will find that extra time, clarity, opportunities, support, inspiration, motivation… and most of all, more energy than ever before — because you will trust yourself, and the path will open up with every step you take.
This topic came up in yesterday’s Q&A during our Abundance ceremony.
It is so normal, as humans, to say…
“But I don’t have the time.”
“I don’t have the money.”
“I don’t have the clarity.”
But my journey has shown me, over and over, it was not *really the time, money, or clarity I was lacking.
It was the confidence, courage, conviction.
It was me, deciding to choose me. My heart.
In the beginning, I didn’t have any of those things. But day by day, I decided to step forward, baby step at a time, despite the paralyzing fear. I decided to take a chance on me.
I didn’t know where it would lead me, but I knew I had to find out. I had to find out what was on the other side of my fear, and most of all — who I would become… who I really am.
Written with love,
