Did you have a great weekend? A really LOVEly one? Did you celebrate the things you love in your life, the people and most importantly, did you celebrate wonderful YOU? Or at least something about you that you like a tiny bit? I hope so. If not, do it now….. and do it every week this year. See what happens…
I liked this quote for #fearlessfeb as we start our Make your Life Briliant Course online. Often we think, I have tried this before, I have tried it and I can’t do it, it doesn’t work, there is no point…. etc. We create limitations in our own minds of why we can’t do something, it’s kind of like a comfortable safety net, that doesn’t really work that well, yet it works.
Through my weils and encephalitis, which I don’t really like to talk about too much, but occasionally feels like it might be helpful for you… I have often come to the ‘end’ of a path and felt stuck, frustrated, unsure and confused about what I ‘should’ do next, like the possibilities of progression have ended. And then, with a moment, or a day like this, I pause and reflect. Firstly, its normal in life to have moments of not feeling okay. Then its totally normal to create a safety net to deal with these situations….
Yet I want to jump out of the net, I want to find the possibilities that are out there, I want to find what I have not found…. for only finding and exploring what we don’t know, losing sight of the shore and what is comfortable do we find and learn new things, new feelings and new depths of courage, compassion, enjoyment and happiness…
So my ramble for #Mondaysmotivation today is this….. when you doubt yourself, when you think I just don’t know if this is right but I wish I could give it a go…… do.
Give ‘it’ a go…. the worst that could happen is it doesn’t work, in whatever context that means… but what will definetly happen is that you will find some more possibilities…
So this week, be brave, braver than you think you can be and go find…. find a possibility that you never knew excited and see what happens
#MondayMotivation have a read…. 3 questions for you…
The Hot Bod Course has started online for 30 Days, I’m really excited about running it. I saw Cirque du Soleil this weekend, I was really excited about this too (whilst managing the old encephalitis with the strobes!) and I watched the Voice….. exciting.
Possibly annoying for a Monday morning… to be so excited… but hey, I thought. We, You, I have one life. To really make things happen you have to get uncomfortable, you have to change things, you have to think… if I had just one chance, would I have the courage to commit and give everything? Would I have the courage to find the enjoyment in the moment, no matter how tough?
I dare you, I challenge you… to think.
1. What could you not live without really trying?
2. What would you be really sad about not doing?
3. If the length of your life was limited, what would you suddenly think…. yes, I just have to do this, go here, try this, spend some time with this person?
Write these questions down, answer them…. and then, please, please….. take action.
By getting uncomfortable, by changing your ‘script’, your story, your habit….. you can do anything, trust me, you really can.
But the ‘doing anything’ requires a huge dose of courage, the nerve to commit and the bravery the believe in yourself, even though the chance of ‘failing’ is so high…each time you ‘fail’ you learn to become wiser,
I’m pretty sure the Cirque performers have ‘failed’ numerous times before they mastered some of the crazy stunts they pulled off (I mean, I am so not strong in comparison, but hey, never compare, observe excellence to become better, or simply to marvel and enjoy talent). And I’m pretty sure the people on the Voice, however they come across had to overcome a huge level of what if and fear to walk on that stage…
So this week, step one step further onto a stage you have not been on before…. and share with us, how that goes.
I would love to know, and I will share too – I have signed up to Ciromedia classes, to learn to cartwheel, hey, you have to start somewhere and I can’t even somersault. I’ve also signed up to a writing, poetry course with a guy called Tyler Knott, if you love poems, read his book. I found it in Conwy, he is from America… it’s pretty cool.
And remember, if you think, I don’t have time….. think, when will I change the script and be ready to make the time to do the uncomfortable, to see what is possible?
