“Breaking Through Barriers to Living Your Dream”
What’s the difference between courageous people and weak people? Weak people allow their fear to hold them back or keep them frozen where they are at. Courageous people embrace their fear and keep moving forward.
What is holding you back from fulfilling your divine life purpose?
Once you can specifically identify what it is that’s preventing you from taking action then you can begin to dismantle the false belief system, heal and move forward.
For example, if someone in your life tells you your idea will never work oftentimes it is out of their own fear of themselves than their disbelief in your dream. My husband told me NO when I wanted to leave my career as a schoolteacher to pursue my dream of owning my own business. He had a million reasons why the whole thing was a bad idea and I have to admit he was pretty convincing, but I knew I had to do this.
I simply said to him, “I honor your opinion and appreciate your insight but IT”S MY LIFE AND I GET TO DECIDE WHAT I AM GOING TO DO WITH IT. Mind you, I wasn’t ranting and raving like a lunatic (although I was feeling a little crazy inside). I think what scared him the most was my demeanor when I said it. I was calm, rational and said it like I meant it. No more discussion.
Once I said those words out loud my whole world changed and it was like the dam finally burst and I could feel a sense of incredible freedom and joy flow into my life. Later I discovered that he was afraid if I left my job that he would be solely responsible for being the bread winner and that was a huge weight on his shoulders.
So in the end he has been my #1 fan, cheering me on from the sidelines but I would have never known that his initial reluctance for my new career path was never about whether or not it was a good idea, it was about his own fears as a man, as a husband. Once we both broke through that barrier and embraced our fear and did it anyway, both of our lives changed for the better.
I am a huge fan of positive thinking! Say each thought lovingly to yourself three times daily and watch magical things begin to happen in your life:
- I am a brave and valiant warrior.
- I boldly go in the direction of my dreams.
- I move through my fears allowing my courage to blossom.
