You have a wonderful dream. You are all excited about it and you start out gung ho. Then it gets hard, you hit an obstacle. It is not working out like you thought it would. During challenging times this is where most people stop short on their dream.
They seem to give up and settle. Making it okay not to reach their dream. But, you can be different.
This is the point where you can make a choice to go with the current state of feelings or breakout of it. How do you break away from the habit of repeated habitual thinking and feelings?
Here are 3 steps to help your breakthrough the challenge to your success.
The first step is to stop and breath. When we get stressed we tense up and hold our breath. The second step is to feel the frustration or anger. When you feel the frustration or the anger, acknowledge it and then breathe through it, letting the frustration go. The last step is to reframe the event so that it ends the way that supports you.
Most of the time, we get upset or quit the project, because the outcome is not what we expected. We become disappointed or frustrated and it is easier to settle than to figure out a new way of creating our desire. Next time you are ready to throw in the towel and settle. Pause for a moment and ask yourself, “If I settled would I be happy?” If the answer is no, then find another option and keep moving forward towards your dream.
When you push through the last obstacle more than likely things work out better than you could have ever imagined. It is like the last test from The Universe to see if you really want your dream. I know you can do it. Keep going towards your goal, dream or vision and breakthrough the last barrier to your success. Then celebrate all that you have accomplished. You deserve it.
