So, why do we do this? What have we got to lose? Maybe some of us will construct elaborate reasons for not permitting ourselves the liberty to further our goals and step outside our comfort zones. What have we got to lose and what do we fear? Or, viewed in another way, what have we got to gain by going for it? I think this is the more important question that we should be asking ourselves. Because let’s face it, who are we living for? Do you want to live your life on your terms or your parents, teachers, university professors, neighbours or some distant relative’s terms? I would encourage you to get any reasons and resistances to moving towards your goals down on paper and design some conversations where you can make these resistances go away.
I want to enable you to give yourself permission to do whatever it is your heart desires based on a deep reflection of what that longing in your heart is fuelling. The nightmare is that people will end up teasing themselves about an idea and staying stuck in the null zone of inaction and this fuels regret and depression of all kinds which is what we want to avoid. Perfection is a concept that steals energy and a willingness to put ourselves out there in some cases. Fretting over something minor and criticising efforts because it doesn’t cut the mustard, is a major way many of us get in our own way.
What sort of thing can you free yourself to start doing today? What permission can you give yourself today that will put you on the road to doing something you really want to do? Maybe you want to be an airline pilot or a formula 1 driver? Maybe you have accepted a story that disallows you from doing those things. I am here today to say throw that idea out of your head and start believing that it can and will happen if you focus on it to make it happen.
