Do you find yourself saying..
I’d love to HAVE more…
Id love to DO more…
I’d love to BE more…
Let’s talk about that ‘BUT’!!
‘BUT’ is such a ‘cut-off-shut-down’ kind of word!
And in the case of dreaming – its a real dream thief!!
So – what’s your ‘BUT’??
What’s cutting off & shutting down your dream?
Do any of these common ‘buts‘ ring true for you?:
- It’s too hard!
- It’s too expensive!
- I don’t have enough money
- I don’t have enough time
- I’m too old
- I’d be eating into the kids inheritance
- I can’t justify that!
- I don’t want to be greedy
- I don’t deserve it
In the world of coaching – these are called ‘stories’. They’re beliefs that we’ve decided are true for us – because of something that we experienced – often even going back to when we were small.
One of the most liberating things I’ve ever learnt is that –
I learnt this from a life coach – who was just beginning his business – he wrote out these 2 amazing words on a big sign & hung it on the back of his front door – so that he would read them just before he stepped out of his house each day to go to his place of work.
What he shared with me – was exactly the thing I needed to hear – it spoke directly to my own belief that I had unknowingly carried with me till I was in my late 40’s!!!
I was the baby of my family & it always seemed like ‘I was too little’ to have/do/be…
I felt like I’d just been given the permission I’d unconsciously been waiting for – that I could now actually go & live my life!!
Seems crazy – but if nothing comes along to question our stories & beliefs – they go unchallenged!! – As it had with me.
Your dreams are valid!!
They are part of YOU!!
And you are VALID!! VALUABLE!! DESERVING!! AND ALLOWED!!
You have permission to drop your ‘but’ & dream the life you’d really-truly LOVE to live!
Coz when you do that – you start to attract it!
Dreams/visions are crucially important – in the creating process!!
You can’t attract what you want if you don’t have a vision of it!
