Here is a new way to look at hardship and struggle. If you looked at every hard time you had as a stepping stone to better your life. This thought process prepares you for the next step, the next adventure. Life is a series of adventures! It is your reaction to what’s going on around you that makes it easy or hard. Within the hard time, there is always something that we need to know. Through the challenge, it somehow makes us becomes a better person. If you look at everything as a lesson to help you grow and further your progress then the path is easier, as you know you will get through it. When you are going through these hard times talk to yourself with encouragement, and supportive words, not put downs. Be kind to yourself. Look at it as, a time of development, not hard times. Don’t give up on yourself, because then you will then stay the same. You will be stuck, not learning or growing into the person you were meant to be. Know that you have what it takes and that you can do it! Be patient with yourself and realize that you need time to develop into the great person you were meant to be. You now have possibility thinking. Now, you are thinking about ways you can support yourself, which make your progress easier. What kind things can you say about yourself today?
My desire is to inspire you to ‘do what you need to do’, in order to ‘be who you want to be’. If you ever need to stretch yourself, I highly recommend trying something brand new and out of your comfort zone!
You could pick something like running a half marathon. This will help to move you forward and bring up all the beliefs you have hiding about yourself. Some of those beliefs might be, “It’s hard, I don’t like running, I don’t know if I can do this.”
When these beliefs surface realize it’s just a part of you that can never do or be enough that’s getting triggered. When those beliefs get triggered go back to focusing on what matters the most to you. How you do that is by asking yourself a few questions… What do I want? Be crystal clear about what you want?
Why do I want it? Get really clear about why you want it?
What strategy will I use? Am I clear about the strategy to get my desire?
Am I creating from the future version? As if it is already done. If not, imagine what it will be like having it, being it or doing it.
Do you have the courage to do what needs to be done to create your desire?
Answer those questions and see what comes up for you. When you can answer the questions above you will quickly get back on the right track. Are you stuck? If you can’t answer those questions, ask for help. If you need help, I’m a phone call away. You can schedule a complimentary breakthrough session with me by emailing me at Jolen@lighterWithin.com.
Courage is an attitude. It is movement, doing something, some type of action towards your desire even through you may not feel like it. Courage is having faith that things will work out for you.
Faith is knowing that something or someone will come forth to help you in your time of need. Faith is trusting the Angels to assist you with your wish. Trust is knowing that you are being helped and allowing things to flow the way they do. Trust is taking your control off the outcome. How it turns out will be different than you expect. Sometimes it looks as if it is a challenge.
Courage, faith and trust all work together. Without one the others can’t work. It like having a three legged stool and one of the legs are missing. The stool can’t stand on its own without falling over. It needs the missing leg to be strong. It takes courage to do what you fear. It takes faith to believe it will work out for your best and highest good. It takes trust that you are being Divinely guided.
Today as you go about your day. Tap into the energy of courage, which is ‘doing it’ in spite of how you feel. See how many times it touches your life. Then, see the faith that you have as you are using the energy of courage. Lastly trust it is all working out. There are things going on that are out of your control. Charge ahead with courage, have faith and trust the Angels are holding your hand along the way. I know that you can do!
Have you ever felt like Dorothy in the movie The Wizard of Oz?
You are on a hero’s journey trying to get to the Emerald city, but somewhere you got lost. You got stuck on a loop of negative thinking, worry and doubt. You don’t feel happy anymore. There is no passion for what you do and who knows where the courage went. Have you felt this way?
Dorothy went on a self discovery expedition that was filled with lessons, but on her journey down the Yellow Brick Road she gained courage, confidence and a sense of joy she had never experience before. It wasn’t until she gets home that she realizes that she had the Power Within herself to create anything she sets her mind to. Just like Dorothy you have the courage to dream and create anything you want. What is it that you want to accomplish?
The Yellow Brick Road is a quest to find your authentic self, face your worst enemy-fear, worry doubt and to attain courage to live a happier life. Often we feel small weak and simply not up to the challenge. We don’t know if there is even any strength to pull us through. Our problems seem to engulf us, stop us and even destroy us if we let it.
We are looking outside ourselves and forget the answers are within. You are stronger than you think. There is a strength and courage within you that has always been there. Click your heels together. It is time to dig out your courage and use it. First, just by being still and getting clear on what you really want you pull on this inner strength. Second, once you are clear, then you can re-frame your negative thinking to focus positively with your desires. Once the shift happens you feel the joy, love and happiness in your heart again. You get to the other side wiser and stronger from the experience. Have faith that you can do it.
