For most women it’s not a lack of resources, time, energy or money that holds them back from making the life changes they desire. Although I hear it all the time from affluent, successful women. Women who by far have every aspect of comfort and luxury available to them. The real root of the issue is their lack of courage, self confidence, personal power and joy. Based on the culture values they were raised on, everything was taken care of for them. There are those women who never had to find their way through a challenge, and the ones that did, were so afraid of real survival issues, found a way to settle in, leaving the past behind, yet never really reconciling the emotional scars.
Now is the time to bring to light, to confront the real fears holding women back, stuck in fear, lack and limitation.
This requires them to face the only person who can save them, and that is themselves.
It can be scary, uncomfortable and risky to think about having to look at yourself in the mirror. To see all the ways you gave up on yourself, in order to get validation of who you are in the world.
Where do we begin? And why?
First we begin with accepting yourself. Forgiving yourself for believing others, trying to keep others happy and forgive yourself for giving up on yourself. Accept the woman you are right now, today. The woman who stands before you in front of the mirror and tell her, you love her.
Look at your confidence, power, and joy. What do you notice? How do these resources make you feel? Do you know what they are, from within you? How do they show up in your life, or are they missing?
If these are the resources missing, congratulate yourself for your awareness, recognizing thy’re missing and why you’re held back from making the desired changes you’ve been looking to make. You traded your confidence, power and joy in exchange for time, energy and money as opposed to weaving and blending the two together. You gave up on one for the other, and you wonder why you’re not succeeding in making the changes you desire.
So now, it’s time to head in a new direction. That means to take new actions. This requires courage. Courage is the key that unlocks the door to the tower you’ve locked yourself away in. No one can do it for you. It’s about taking one step at a time, an action that will set you on a new path, which involves a risk. Look at it this way. Every time you step into a courageous action you build your account of confidence, power and joy.
Accept yourself. Look at yourself. You deserve more. Not more things. More, joy, passion, pleasure and love. That can only come from you taking action for your desires.
The biggest challenge is getting started, and since you haven’t been privy to taking actions, risk taking, and courage, it’s like death. Yes, I know, it feels like death. That’s it sister. Crossing the threshold into unknown territory will challenge your opposites, life and death. To gain new life you will have to cross over the death of the old into the new. Living a life in fear. Living a life attached to outside resources, that’s not living. That’s keeping you locked in your ivory tower. Your confidence, power and joy, will open you in ways that will shake you to the core, freeing you.
It is freedom you seek. You thought you’d find it in time, energy and money. Doing more, having more.
Freedom. Now you know, your freedom is found in your confidence, power and joy. Go. Find it, make it happen.
I believe in you.
