I had a Big revelation yesterday. I've been a serial procrastinator and I'm still somewhat afraid of my own potential. I was doing the bookkeeping for my business and I had a "gut" reaction when I saw bigger numbers popping up in my statements. I use quotation marks because I know now it's not my gut, it's my chest and it's fear. Fear of success much more than fear of failure. Why you may ask? Because I had told myself, based on mine and other people's opinions, that I was not good enough, that I didn't follow through with my plans (because of the procrastination) and that I gave up too soon. So, it was easier to just be, to just "exist", and not show how great I can be. It was easier to dim my light and supposedly not disappoint people who weren't expecting much of me. The problem with that is I was disappointing myself. But that's my old self. My new identity is a positive, happy, disciplined, consistent person. I do what I mean and mean what I do. The momentum in the "wrong" direction was quite fast and strong as I was in that rut for a long time, and the stopping and moving in the right, better direction is taking some time. I just remind myself of that when I feel a little discouraged. I remind myself to have grace and kindness to myself and others because we're doing the best we can. I'm so grateful my mindset has changed so much. I'm so thankful for the changes that have occurred so far and the better ones in my next steps. I'm grateful for having found this beautiful Tribe. You guys are great 👍👍👍👍👍
After listening to this video, I realized that I get it. I'm working on not judging others first, because even the Bible says, 'how come you see the speck in your brother's eye, but you're missing the log in yours" or something like that. And not judging what's going on second, because things just are, they just are. A person just is and a situation is just a situation, you are the one who puts a label on it. For example, my dryer broke, it's not heating. The old me would have been so upset, crying, cursing, getting whinny, blah blah blah... because she'd see it as such a big mess. This new me, the Open-hearted me, the to open-minded me, just sees that is a situation. The dryer is not working, it either needs to be fixed or replaced. That's it. I decided to give it a shot at fixing it first and we're waiting for the part, but before I'd have been also upset because I have to spend money. That obsessive lack mentality the world seems to grab onto. I'm so different now, we even took advantage of the nice weather and dried the clothes outside. So, when you stop judging, you just observe. That phrase "it is what it is", it really is a powerful one. I've been there, I've been using the phrase for a while, knowing it's true, and it really helps 👍

My core mission here on earth is to Raise Vibration The Vibration Of The Planet by awakening minds to the truth. Throughout my journey, I know one thing for sure. There is a higher power and I call that higher power god. We are it and it is you. It's all one. I am a reminder to work with the truth so you can live an inspired life and manifest your heart's truth.
Listen, if you are serious about creating wealth, abundance, and freedom in your life or business, you must be willing to face the truth within yourself. There's a part of you that's deeply scared of stepping into the reality that you want in your heart. You're scared of getting rejected, experiencing failure, and fully committing yourself to your dreams. You're scared of what you'll lose and what you'll have to sacrifice. Your ego has created a long list of negative consequences that come with going ALL IN that's causing you to have one foot in the door and one foot out. If you are not 100% committed to creating your destiny, your ego will always sabotage your plans for you. Your ego will tell you I can't do this and I can't do that and if you listen to these stories you'll create circumstances in your life that keep you from realizing your dreams. Your WHY for creating your dream must overpower your ego's resistance to changing. You must become 100% committed no matter what. You must transcend all perceived lack and limitation in your life and step into the limitless nature of who you truly are. This is an energy that's connected to your higher potential. Nothing can stop you from this place. It doesn't mean that you don't experience fear. It means that you take inspired action anyways because you know what you're truly made of. Are you willing to stop holding yourself back and face your fears full on? Are you willing to give all your heart to your dream or purpose like there's no tomorrow? If you are truly willing, magic is waiting for you on the other side. With love, Jared
Excellent post. The thorn on my side is covered in fear. I'm determined to expel it completely. I'm not living with it any longer. I know I'm catching up to my destiny, to my promise. Thank you for this 💞💞💞
@Karen Markum that's why you have to believe in it yourself. Maybe it's not that they didn't believe in the potential, maybe they were jealous and tried to bring you down. Have you thought about that? 🤔🤔🤔
