When you open your eyes and take a look at your life, in this moment, what do you see?
Do you ever wonder whether you can do any of the things you dream of doing in your life?
Do you wonder whether you are just ‘dreaming’ and whether it all might just come to nothing in the end?
Do you have a clear idea in your mind about what you should be doing and what should be happening but you just DON’T. SEEM. TO. BE. GETTING. ANYWHERE?
Well, you’re not alone. Many women feel this way, including (and perhaps even especially) high achieving leaders. Because unfortunately, we’re often not happy with where we are already at. We keep looking at things and thinking, what can I do to make things ‘better’ OR ‘what am I still not doing so well?’
We often focus on the gaps, instead of the progress we’ve made. We don’t recognise the steps forward, we just see how many more steps lay ahead of us on the path and start wondering why we’re ‘not there already’.
But we are there already. We are HERE. And here is a wondrous place. If we will only stop for a moment to NOTICE all that we’ve created. Notice what we’ve done well. And notice all we’ve achieved. So far.
You see the thing is, of course there’s always more you could be doing, more you could be creating and giving. But success doesn’t require this of you. It requires you to acknowledge what you’ve GOT. What’s already in your life. Right now.
So what is it hey? What have you already got going for you in your life? Because there will be something. And if you’re having trouble seeing it, then keep looking until you find it!
Instead of beating yourself up about what you ‘should’ be doing next and what’s possible. How about you start looking around at NOW. What do you see when you absolutely commit yourself to doing this?
When you open your eyes and take a look at your life, in this moment. What do you see?
Is this the life you once dreamed of living? I’ll bet your bottom dollar that in many ways it IS.
You once dreamed of the life you’ve since created. Perhaps you got into the tertiary course you dreamed of, you got the job you wanted, bought your first home or maybe you’ve created an incredible family of your own.
Yet, now you’re still dreaming of some other future place. Somehow unsatisfied with where things are sitting. Not because they aren’t what you want, but because now you’ve created these things, you are looking for the next BIG thing.
In fact, it’s possible you are striving, dreaming, imagining the future and the world you want to live in, all the while missing (in your day dreaming about the future) what’s laying all around you. YOUR AMAZING LIFE. The life you’ve consciously created for yourself!
Are you enjoying it? Are you appreciating it? Are you even noticing it?
Take a moment now to truly SEE it.
Focus on what is there for you already – right now.
What are you grateful for?
What are you proud of?
What have you worked hard for that meant so much to you before you achieved it?
Are you showing your life the LOVE you imagined you’d feel when all you dreamed of arrived?
Are you thanking your life for rewarding you for all the effort you’ve already put in?
And at what point will you feel that RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW, you are ENOUGH?
Because you ARE you know. ENOUGH.
But you will never notice this until you stop and acknowledge the path you’ve travelled already and the way in which you have brought yourself FULLY to every step.
You see, sometimes you’re AFRAID to put yourself out there, to STAND UP and BE HEARD. BUT I know for a fact you’ve done it before.
Maybe not often.
Maybe not as much as you are asking of yourself now.
But you’ve done it. If you hadn’t, you wouldn’t be here.
You wouldn’t be dreaming, you wouldn’t be challenging yourself. You wouldn’t be driving yourself towards making your own unique difference in the world.
I KNOW you want to make an impact, you want to create incredible things and you want to feel the reward of seeing all you’ve dreamed of come to fruition.
But, if you fail to acknowledge what you’ve already done, you’ll miss the things that brought you this far and the things which will help you take the very next step.
YOU did this and you can do it again.
You’ve climbed mountains.
You’ve transcended barriers.
You’ve dealt with uncomfortable moments and conversations.
You’ve stood up and delivered your views to someone, somewhere.
You’ve overcome self-doubt, worry and overwhelm before.
So why can’t you do it again. And again?
This is just another step on your INCREDIBLE journey. To be embraced, enjoyed and celebrated every step of the way.
