I’m Good Enough!
At some point, you’ve all probably contemplated the question, “If I could do anything I wanted with my life – and money was no object – what would that be?” In our modern world, with so many possibilities staring us in the face, this isn’t always an easy question to consider. But let’s say you have a pretty solid idea as to what you would do. Then how come you’re not doing it right now?
There are 4 words (limiting belief alert!) that keep most people from having everything they want: I’m not good enough.
Almost 20 years ago, I picked up Marsha Sinetar’s book ‘Do What You Love, The Money Will Follow’. And while admittedly not my all-time favorite book on the subject, the title has resonated with me over the years. Also, given my current line of work, I find these words very Law of Attraction-esque (i.e. Focus on what you want, The Universe will follow!).
So are you truly doing what you love? For some of my clients, this is a simple question to tackle, as their answer is a resounding ‘NO’. For others, it can be a bit more gray. They like what they’re doing – and they’re content – yet often, upon further inspection, we uncover those dormant dreams that would truly stir their passion. When asked why they’ve chosen to stick with their present careers, clients tend to play the ‘Reasonable Card’, citing both their need to earn a living, and to be ‘realistic’.
Now I’m not suggesting you pack your bags for Tahitian shores tomorrow morning. I’m just gently throwing out the idea that it might be worth pondering what’s stopping you from having the life you’d really love. For example, why haven’t I given speeches to packed arenas like Anthony Robbins? How come my brother stopped short pursuing a long-time passion for a career in travel? Well perhaps these aren’t ultimately our deepest desires – but more probable, somewhere underneath our ‘reasonableness’, those 4 little words are lurking…
So what would you do if you could do anything? A good tool to get moving in the direction of your dreams is committing to one baby step. For example, if you want to become a Broadway actor, maybe calling every director to let them know you’ve arrived is jumping the gun (or maybe it’s not – while they may not immediately cast you in a hit musical, they could give you a tip on how to get there!) – but checking out local theatres, or researching where you could take an acting class in your area could be your ticket to the good vibes rolling.
Remember, with The Universe, energy is everything. A small step often leads to another, then an even a bigger one. And once you corral the entire wave, you’ll soon be gliding with the current – and things you may have thought not possible will begin to materialize with far less resistance.
If you’re up to it, I’m proposing you to take on this exercise: Set aside some time today to get in touch with your innermost desires. And when that (loud) silent voice – that limiting belief – starts to whisper “I’m not good enough”, stop and take notice. Then quickly redirect the thought by reminding yourself, “I AM good enough (to become anything I want)!” Keep in mind, you’re constantly authorizing everything that shows up in your world. It’s your life, your creation. You have always been responsible for everything. And one thing I guarantee you about Law of Attraction – The Universe is waiting to serve you. And if you truly believe you’re good enough to have anything you want, it won’t be long before everyone else believes it too.
Until next time…
