I had a Satori this week! (moment of enlightenment) – I realized that I hadn’t taken the one action that was required to truly launch my intention for my business, and my life for that matter, into “Full Speed Ahead” mode. This little brainfart of enlightenment has changed me quite profoundly, and it is already bringing things into my experience that have in the past been a real struggle.
“Winners are goal achievers, Losers are comfort seekers” – can’t remember where I got that quote, but it’s really true, tho perhaps the word “Loser” is a bit strong- “struggler” might be interchanged there.
It makes a hell of a point tho, eh?
I realized that, yes I have been a “loser/ struggler” for half of my life, but I have an excuse. When you struggle with anxiety you better believe you become a friggin’ comfort seeker. It’s a survival strategy at that point.
The key point here is that word “excuse”– comfort seeking was a survival strategy from a PAST me, a FORMER me who no longer exists thanks to the tools that I now teach others and that my business is based on. You can learn more here.
The Satori that I had was that the old Bambi is gone, dead and buried with all her suffering! Can I get a “Hell Yeah” here and a little “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” music in the background?
The problem was that she left behind her survival strategy which had become a saboteur of my success. When one is on the quest to uplevel their lives, their businesses, their income…our demons start squawkin’ and talkin’ and DAMN it can get uncomfortable.
That discomfort feels extremely similar to anxiety and my brain and my body, given my past of being skeletal with Panic Disorder, very naturally screams, “RUN AWAY, RUN VERY FAR AWAY!” ie. Seek comfort, do what gives me relief.
This is very easy to do when you merely “WANT” a goal.
It doesn’t even factor in when you have “Committed” to the goal, especially to yourself!
I am so thrilled to report that I can say the words “I’ll do whatever it takes” now and I don’t feel that resistant contraction in my gut! Never before have I been able to say that and feel free and determined and focused and prancin’ in my big girl panties.
Yah friggin’ hooo people, it’s been a long time comin’!
So check in with yourself, where are you finding molasses grabbin’ yo’ ass and the ball and chain holding you back?
Are you WANTING or are you COMMITTING and have you made the decision to step it up? Give it a try, and I’m tellin’ ya, you’ll never look back!
“I am lion, hear me roar” (OK I date myself there)
Have a friggin’ fabulous week my friends!
