Are you Settling?

Do you ever have the feeling that something may be missing in your life? Are you settling for less than you deserve or desire?  So often we settle for oddments of pleasures because we are afraid to look or go beyond our fear based thoughts. Thoughts that create doubt or resistance. However, when you address these thoughts and see them for what they truly are, you realize that you have complete control to modify and move beyond this narrowed thinking.

Whether it’s in your personal or professional life, it all applies. It’s easy to make excuses why you “can’t” do something, have something, or change something. Let’s list a few and see if they sound familiar:

  • I’m not good enough
  • Doubting self-worth
  • Fear of change
  • It’s easier to stay
  • I don’t have time
  • I feel bad for him/her
  • I’m not ready
  • It’s too hard

These are just a few, as there is an endless list of excuses that one can make, not to move forward and live your best life. You must confront these excuses when they come into your thoughts, instead of allowing them to hold you back. Take each one of this listed excuses and turn it around. There is a positive for every negative!

Where is your passion? What motivates you? What’s calling you? Only you have the answers. Quiet your mind, and listen. Remember, there are no shortcuts, you have to do the work.

Make a bold commitment to act and not procrastinate. Make the commitment to change. Make the commitment to grow. Your destiny is all within reach, and you hold the power to make it all happen. You are the vessel; allow your passions and desires to enter.

You deserve a full life ~ a life filled with more than oddments of pleasure ~
It’s there ~ and yours for the taking ~
