If you are reading this, perhaps you have some issues causing consistent problems or frustrations in your life.
You know you need to change and you really want to but how do you know how to get where you want to go and which actions will get you the right result? Who do you go to?
Once you have done your research and figured out your answer and have the funds to invest, there is one more thing has the potential to stop you in your tracks.
That thing is FEAR.
Changing who and how we are goes against our biological urge for safety and survival. If you are considering embarking on a significant journey of change and you are terrified, know that your instincts are serving you well and then choose change anyway.
“A year from now, 12 months will have elapsed and you’ll either have taken the journey (to achieve your dreams) or you won’t. Imagine how that’s going to feel either way…Now choose” – Rose Aitken
Five years ago, when everything I knew began to fall apart, so something better could show up, I had many, many fears, however, despite these I KNEW life was meant to be wonderful. I KNEW I had untapped potential. I BELIEVED I COULD CHANGE.
The following thoughts were rooted firmly in my head:
- I was afraid I would be the only person that making thechanges didn’t work for.
- I didn’t want to spend a lot of time and money working for something that might still leave me with the same problems
- I might hate being the new version of me
- The journey might be too hard or painful, or I might get to a point I can’t get beyond and feel stuck there.
- I might change so much that everyone hated me. Hell, I might hate me too.
- I might become an uptight pain in the ass that is no fun and too serious.
- The pain and trauma might continue, but just in a different way/on a different level and I might not know how to deal with that either.
- Life might suck after the changes, just in a different way.
- My anxiety might be unchangeable. It had been until that point.
- And on….and on….
I chose change anyway and here’s what happened.
It hurt, a lot and my progress was often painfully slow. I wanted someone to oversee my changes who could join the dots for me, I was often blindly feeling my way. (I would have given anything for someone like me to help me back then).
Regardless of these things I kept going and pretty soon the magic started to show up. The Universe kept bringing me the lessons I needed to go next level and next…I was getting just enough pain to keep the change momentum going, without crippling me.
I’ve learned about energetic awareness and emotional self mastery. I’ve grasped how to BE different, operate differently and feel different. My physiology and bank account are vastly improved and I am now a match for good things. Along the way I build confidence, self worth and self discipline, amazing relationships and friends and a life I LOVE.
Here’s what I know about choosing change in the face of fear:
1. You have to make the change because it feels right.
2. You have to make it because you know something different is possible for you.
3. You have to keep going and commit to doing so and be willing to do WHATEVER IT TAKES to win.
I did and it’s why I got to where I am today. Here are five more compelling reasons why you should choose change:
1. You can out-create anything
Whatever feels too hard to change or to live with, you can do something about. Whatever seems like it is destroying you, you can outcreate and go beyond. Maybe no one told you this, but you can.
2. The bigger the challenge, the bigger the reward
If your pain feels epic, it’s likely you have much transformation to undertake, much growth you are being called towards to ready you for a powerful purpose.
3. Staying stuck gets painful, when it’s time to move on
We are so masterful at enduring that if being stuck didn’t suck, we’d endure permanently.
4. On the other side of your mountain, is a very different reality
One where you get to decide your future and the quality of your life. You get to show up as yourself, love your work, value yourself and find happiness, success and fulfilment.
5. That mountain may feel impossible to climb, but it isn’t.
Many have done it before you. Once you hit the top, there is a downhill stretch. For a long time you will ask questions, process, effort and learn. One day it will all start to make more sense. You will get it and there will be no going back, ever.
The rewards from embarking on this journey into the unknown are 100 times what you can imagine from where you are now.
Life is still challenging on the other side, but you are free, because you have the skills to handle those challenges.
Real freedom is not a problem free life, it’s having the skills to handle anything life throws you.
