I’ve encountered so many people in my life who tell me that can’t do something. Those people are just testing you and you can’t let them bring you down. True friends will lift you up and believe in you. Don’t allow anyone to tell you you can’t live your dream because if you don’t believe in yourself then nobody else will.
Think about one thing you’ve been holding back on doing and start doing it today. Be fearless. There are so many beautiful, talented souls in this world. Don’t let anything stand in the way of your potential.
Your life is your own. I want you to read that sentence until it sinks all the way down inside your gut and meets every last impulse that tells you to put your intuition on pause, to place yourself second, to squeeze and bend and break into the molds of what everyone else wants you to be.
Your life is your own. I want it to pass through your head so many times it slowly clears out the debris of your fear. I want you to meditate on it until you realize that you are not too strange, you just have the courage to be your true self, you are not too different, you just have the courage to follow your own heart, you are not unworthy, you are just honest about the very natural human experience of feeling unworthiness.
Every person alive wishes to embody these very same forms of freedom. They are not judging you, they are expressing the parts of themselves they’ve judged into silence.
Your life is your own, and it always will be. You must find the courage to claim it, or it will pass by you untouched, a glimmering, lost potential of all that could have been. (Not my words).
No one else can possibly know what kinda power you’ve got going on inside you. What kinda potential, life-force, and creative ability you contain. Only you know the beginning and end of that. And even if you tell anyone about your dreams, and they nod their head, like, “Yes, yes, maybe that’s meant to be”, they should never need to be convinced that you will reach those dreams. Because your dreams are not theirs. Let go of their opinion. Let go of their judgement. Let go of their support, even if it is coming from the most loving place. Let it go. Because it’s not for them to know, this thing that you are dreaming.
You know where you’re going. You know what you are capable of. There is no need to prove this or explain this or articulate this to anyone else. It is entirely up to you. And you need all the space within you to be free for new realities. Make sure you’ve cleared that space. Make sure nothing else is influencing that space. Make sure that this dream is all and only you. BUILD YOURSELF LIKE YOU DREAM.
Once in a while i talk about the flip sides of comfort zone. The darkest side of being stuck in your COMFORT ZONE is; “You could lose your individuality”. When you live your entire life inside your comfort zone, you easily become lost in the crowd without an inner guiding light. You become just another sheep walking with the herd. When you break away from the masses, It might feel uncomfortable but that is the space where you can find fulfillment through growth and connection. Unless you retain your individuality, you won’t make a difference in the world. Capitalize on your potential or learn new things. Once you release yourself from the prison of comfortability, you’ll start to see new and better opportunities and you’ll be able to take advantage of them. Other people will notice how you move forward through life and they will look up to you for guidance and inspiration. Instead of being just another follower, you empower yourself to carve your own path and Lead others toward their greatness as well.
So many people trap themselves within the confines of their comfort zones, for some it’s merely a habit, others never leave because they let their irrational fears dictate their lives, these people condemn themselves to a reality full of frustration and regret. Don’t let that be you although it seems scary to venture out of your comfort zone. You need to take the first steps. If you practice pushing the boundaries of your comfort zone, you’ll become comfortable with the unfamiliar. Then you can jump into drastically different territory of surprises & happiness. It’s the opportunity to become a better version of yourself & create an IDENTITY which can’t be replicated.
Most people have a misconception that “Routine is making me bored, repetitive & lazy”. When you think of comfort you might imagine a cozy warm space with blankets and a hot drink, its pleasant for sure. But Comfort is double-edged sword that typically results in the consequences of contentment boredom and laziness. Routines can help give structure to your life and your nightly netflix chill ritual might be satisfying but your habits could also be holding you back from opening up in discovering your hidden talents.
When you trap yourself in your comfort zone for too long, you’ll transform into a zombie, a mere cog in the machine without meaning or fulfillment in life. When you lose your drive to learn to do and to achieve, you lose the ability to create meaning in your life and while it’s nice to feel comfortable, it often leads to wasted potential.
How often do you feel “I’m too different”!! That’s not just you. So many claim to be different which makes everyone similar and lackluster at the end with that same way of thinking. Spending all your time squeezing yourself in a box trying to fit in is a waste of energy and stops you from reaching your true potential.
Standing out isn’t a bad thing and you might not be as different or weird as you think. Use your unique qualities to your advantage to help you become successful and the best version of you.
