“Signs, signs, EVERYWHERE a sign!”
Which direction do you go on your road to happiness? You know what you want, yet are unsure of how to act on it. You’ve been standing at a crossroads gazing at the arrows of life. Overwhelming, right? The signs of confusion, lack of clarity and believing in yourself has set your feet on an unclear path where you find yourself wandering in circles. Going nowhere; stuck, stagnant in the lack of creativity and buried courage in what you know is your passion and the path to get there.
Often times our lack of forward motion is due to being stuck in the mud of the past, the lack of clarity and the lack of courage.
Kick Your Past to the Curb!
Perhaps you have had past experiences of disappointment and perceived failure that stripped you of your confidence and self-worth. The past let-down of your efforts to achieve that “thing” that aligns with who you are and what you want has created an assumption that you will never be able to achieve it. However, how true is that? While the past is a part of you, it doesn’t have to define you and continuously block your road to your destiny.
Imagine that your past is inscribed on a rock in the middle of your path to greatness. You can pick it up, examine it and set it back down which can make you dip into that emotional junk around holding the rock. Hey, that’s OK! Examining your past mile markers connects you to those thoughts and emotions that no longer serve you.
You could also avoid the rock and walk around it, but it will still be in your path; never acknowledging or releasing what has prevented you from taking the next step. OR you can kick it to the side, clear your path and say, “NO! I don’t want to stumble upon it again!”
What IF you were to shift your thoughts to a new perspective to move your life forward? I am super curious. Ask yourself, “What did I learn from the past? How can I take what I learned and have those experiences inspire me to take action in what I want?” What is the opportunity here?” WHOA! Your power is back!
Be Clear in Your Intentions
Avoidance can occur when you are not crystal clear about what it is you truly want. It is challenging to create a plan if you do not know what it looks like to you. Without connecting to what you represent, you struggle with what you want in life. Your lack of action to chuck the rock and walk an obstruction free path keeps you stuck in a pot hole of fear, worry and doubt. However, in what ways does continuing down the same rocky road help you achieve what you really want?
Your intentions must be clear! Write your intentions on a white board, on a note pad or inspirational planner coupled with an accountability partner (Life Coach) to keep you on track. Customize whatever this looks like to you. (Yes, I am a fan of visuals and support!) Tap into your support network to assist you in living your life on your terms. Contrary to your own beliefs, embrace that you do not have to go at this all alone! Those peeps in your tribe will be there to support you. This will recharge your POWER battery pack when your signal starts to fade.
You ARE a Courageous Lion!
I have always been a fan of the classic flick “The Wizard of Oz”. Each character stepping onto the yellow brick road to find that thing that they want and connects them to their purpose.
To this day, I am forever drawn to the Cowardly Lion. “What makes a king out of a slave? Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage!”
Yes, it takes courage to do something different. Yes, it takes courage to reunite with your passion. Yes, it takes courage to step out of your comfort zone and shout, “I am the KING of my own forest!” When you shout this out loud your energy shifts! It is an enormous step! You have risen from the muddy soil that has buried your courage and you are now ready to release the past, gain clarity of what you want and reclaim you power! Roar! YOU ARE FULLY CHARGED!
