The most impactful lesson I have learned is this:
“It’s not who you are that holds you back,
it’s who you think you’re not.”
Those are potent words: “…it’s who you think you’re not.” Why? Because it affirms that anything you want to be, do and have in life has more to do with your THINKING than the fabricated or perceived obstacles and challenges that keep us from realizing our potential and keeps us from living the life we were meant to experience.
There is more. Another truth I learned was this: we’ve got to get out of our way. That is, away from the toxic chatter in our heads and away from the external dialogues that asphyxiate parts of our lives. Why? because often our truth, our inherent potential and our purpose is buried deep beneath many layers of conditioning, habitual behaviours, life experiences and beliefs to a point that sadly, we disconnect from our intrinsic truth.
That was the year I began my studies in this very material and life today is extraordinary. It shifted my thinking and cleansed my doors of perception. This was my starting point, my springboard to living my truth.
Starting was the hardest part though. In the years prior, I thought I would work through it on my own, but that approach clearly wasn’t working. I think a lot of people make this mistake. I certainly did.
Do I have challenges? Yes, of course. Do I have ups and downs? Yup. Do I experience crippling fear? Yes, of course. The difference now lies in the fact that I am fully aware of how and where to find the power in the struggle. I also understand why I have been challenged with the struggle. This understanding completely displaces the feeling of being victimized and wipes out anger, resentment and anxiety. No more “why me?” BUT “try me!”
If you are ready, I am ready and committed to guide you in your studies. I believe in you and will be your greatest cheerleader throughout your journey! Any program of study you choose will open you to a world of new possibilities. Make no mistake, there is work to be done however.
