What is it that you and me are continually saying to ourselves about ourselves? All too often I find myself rambling on in my head… about me, to me… only to realise that I am my own worst enemy. You see, as S. Kassel highlights, doubt will kill more dreams than failure ever will or could. Because, doubt does not even give rise to the possibility of starting. As the cliché goes 80% of success is just showing up… because being courageous enough to get started, is often the hardest part.
Doubt gives rise to the dreaded “what if” game. Here you get to ruminate about all the millions of possible things that could go wrong – what if I fail, what if I get embarrassed, what if people laugh at me, what if I’m not good enough. I’m sure you can add to this list of “what if’s”. The only time you should be asking what if… is when you ask what if I succeed, what if I become great?
THERE IS NO FAILURE…ONLY FEEDBACK.
Nothing is good or bad only thinking about it makes it so, keep repeating, it is what it is – because it just is!
During moments that I find myself actively undermining my potentiality, by engaging with old negative thought patterns: “what if I fail” or “what if people laugh at me”, “I could never do that” or “who am I to think that I can accomplish this”. I trigger a state anchored in M. Williams empowering words:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of god.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of god that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone
I have found power and inspiration in these words on many, many occasions… and jump at the opportunity to share them as often as possible. Which leads me to asking… what is your metaphor for life?
What is your “life-sentence”. How often have you heard someone say, “well you know life is a bitch and then you die”… only to be amazed that they experience life as a bitch and then they die.
The words we use to create our lived experience’s are extremely powerful… but yet all to often we dismiss them as nothing more than meaningless arguments. In fact you are creating and destroying worlds as you go… its what Jason Silva refers to as ontological design.
