“If you yearn to make true progress in your life/work/relationships, come at all your circumstances from a place of calm, not chaos.”
One of the most common, and biggest untruths that I see in my work with people (myself included) is: “My power is outside of me”.
This belief shows up in a variety of ways depending on where you are in your life stage.
Take work for example. If you work for someone else you at one point or another, have felt that your employer/your boss has power over your well-being. That, if God forbid, you mess up or disappoint them, you’d be fired and your own sense of safety and security would be threatened.
Or say you work for yourself – you probably feel this belief even stronger – where you don’t have the consistent income (a.k.a Source) of an employer plopping money into your account every other week – and therefore feel a heavy burden of trying to figure-out where the money will come from each month.
The belief that your power lies outside of you shows up everywhere – in relationships, in life, and in work.
Being aware that this false belief exists is the KEY to feel more confident, courageous, and yes, worthy.
It’s my belief that our circumstances – each and every one of them – is a beautiful opportunity to “SEE”, as if looking into a mirror, where the growth opportunities are.
If you feel, or have ever felt, helpless and powerless and as if the circumstances of your life feel out of your control, the first place to begin is looking at the set-up of your life – exactly as it is today and seeing it, and everyone in it, as a mirror that is there to serve you and teach you.
