If you really want to change the things that upset you, regardless if it’s your job, your career, your relationships or even the way you see yourself, the key is facing your life the way it is right now. It may sounds harsh, right? As the time goes by it feels right to numb some feelings, denying or hiding them under the rug with reasonable excuses. So then you put all your expectations on other peoples’ opinions and actions, seeking for being liked by people that don’t even know, but never acknowledge your responsibility on things; putting yourself (most of the time) in a second place; disrespecting your own feelings; blocking yourself from being who you truly are; living to fulfill others peoples’ expectations to belong, be accepted and feel worthy.
Can I tell you something? At a certain extent this is all of us. The only way to go out of this endless and painful cycle is breaking down the patterns of thoughts and consequent actions that brought you to the place you are right now and start listening your inner voice – what is it that your body or the world around you is trying to say to you that you are not hearing? (take notes)
So take your time, go to a place where you feel safe, sit down in a comfortable position and just relax for a moment. You can even start breathing slowly to make your heartbeat slow down so you’ll start to be more centered and more opened to your intuition. What I would like you to do is imagining how your dream life would look like. Close your eyes and ask yourself: What is your body trying to say to you that you’re not hearing?
If there’s a single part of you saying that you’re silly by doing this exercise; or that you can’t live a fulfilling life; or that you don’t deserve to live that life; or if you can even see or hear in your mind your partner, friends or a member of your family condemning you for wanting to do all the things you’ve always wanted to do, I’m gonna tell you something: Recognize those voices and classify them – these are your saboteur thoughts and they only represent your fears and old patterns. Some people would say that that is your ego trying to refrain you from being happy and fulfilling your purpose. As a coach, I’d say that you are naturally creative, resourceful and whole* and you can shut those voices off anytime you want by breaking that thinking cycle and moving on. So here’s my gift for you, read each topic slowly and as many times you wish until it resonates with your truth. Whenever you decide to change your life you can start it by:
- Being strongly committed to yourself first – you are the most important person in your life;
- Be clear of what makes you feel really really happy and write them down on a piece of paper so that you can remember and put in practice as many times you can;
- Take good care of your health by making healthy choices (how’s your diet going? btw);
- Exercise more often;
- Do something positive and different for yourself EVERYDAY;
- Clean and organize your place (shelves, closets and cabinets included);
- Write down on a piece of paper and read the following affirmation everyday in front of the mirror:
The greatest gift I can give myself is unconditional love. I am loved.
It takes one thought, a strong commitment, a positive attitude and the result IS ALREADY HERE!
