How often in your life do you question if you are living your purpose or creating a life that is fulfilling to you?
How often do allow yourself to dream and let go of your old stories? And how often do you tell yourself to not think about it because you believe that what you want is not possible?
There are several survival patterns that hold us back - and among them are perfectionism and also doubting our wisdom and intuition.
We think we have to master something or do it perfectly in order to do what we feel called to do.
We worry we would fail or not be approved by others, but it's our mind tricking us so we can remain in the safe zone.
Just because we failed or someone else failed in the past it doesn't mean that's how it's always going to be. Learn from the past but don't keep reliving it or insisting to bring it into your future, because it limits what is possible.
Trust your intuition and the wisdom within that is constantly trying to guide you.
We tend to take proximity advice from other people (family, friends, colleges, etc) that are close to us, and although they might mean well, their advice doesn't always serve our higher purpose.
We can appreciate and thank them for their concern, but unless they are out there embracing their purpose, we might be better off putting their advice aside and choose to learn from the people that are living or at least trying to live their purpose and calling.
Our minds are conditioned to stay in our boxes, to stay in the safe comfort zone. When we choose to stay in it we most likely will not fail or fall so hard, but we also keep away the joy of growing, of expanding, of discovering, of unleashing our potential.
It's important that we don't allow past disappointments or self-doubt to keep us from trying again.
Once you feel what is like not to live in boxes anymore, you will always try to figure out how to get out of one - even if you find yourself in a situation that you feel stuck again. Once you've learned that you have wings, the only permission you need to fly and live your purpose it's Your Own!
I wish you a journey self-discovery and amusement !
