We are taught & conditioned our entire life. Right from the moment you enter the world, you are bombarded with beliefs. A common belief we are consciously & unconsciously taught is that we are not good enough. Whether that is from our family and friends, or the radio, the TV, the internet, we are taught to believe we are not good enough. That single belief alone is a perfect recipe to make fear. Fear will block the ability to dream & pursue a better life.
We know that we have been conditioned to think we are not good enough, but we have also been conditioned to think dreams are just dreams & nothing more. Our minds will tell us to fear what our inner being & our hearts most desire. That fear blocks the ability to dream it. This block will not only keep us stuck, but it will rob you of your joy, happiness, authenticity, & the ability to pursue your greatest desires. I am living & walking proof of it.
Recently I walked away from a job that I enjoyed the work and the people I worked with. It paid extremely well, provided endless benefits, & allowed me to put my family first most of the time. This employer was the very best of my 30 years in the work force. People envy this kind of employment security.
I bet you are asking why the hell I would leave such an incredible position, especially during an economic crisis, Covid fatigue, and while our society continues to corrupt itself. It's not because I won the lottery or have a spouse who brings home allot of bacon. In fact, he just launched his own business 12 months ago. It's because my heart & inner self was screaming to fight the fear of not being good enough. It was more exhausting to battle it than to be content. After 3 years I kicked the fear to the curb & decided I AM GOOD ENOUGH!
Have you ever asked yourself what more in life do you want? Many of us may feel the need not to because we are content. You get up every morning, go to work, come home, eat dinner, watch a little TV, go to bed, and wake up to do it all over again. If that's your jive, GREAT! There is nothing to fear in that. But I beg you to revisit it by asking yourself, is it my dream life?
