How do the people in your life make you feel about you dreams?
If it’s not inspired, capable and supported is it time to re-evaluate what your relationships are contributing to your higher good.
When we beginning a new chapter in our lives and are unclear of what this new transition will look like we begin to question our inner guide, we allow our thoughts to cloud our vision of what we truly desire. This is when we begin to seek guidance from outside of ourselves to regain a sense of clarity.
Often we run to our friends or our family. We tell them about our ideas seeking validation. We wanna know that we are not crazy. We want to hear that our ideas are genius and to follow our hearts. But then instead we leave the conversation feeling fearful. Fearful of money, fearful of missing out on the valuable time with friends/family, fearful of disappointing our parents, fearful of failing. Then we lose hope on our dreams and continue on with our 9-5s until we hit a wall.
The world is full of people who will never be brave with their own lives but will spend every ounce of energy they have hurling advice and judgement at those of us who are trying to dare greatly. Before you go seeking advice again I invite you to ask yourself these questions.
1. Do you truly value this persons opinion? Is this person living a life that inspires you? Do you aspire to live like this person?
2. Does this person dare greatly with their own life?
3. Does this persons opinion of YOU matter?
From my own experiences, not everyone is going to like what you choose to do with your life. They WILL take it personally, they WILL criticize you, they WILL try to dim your light. It’s the people who have never travelled that will tell you all about the dangers of travelling. It’s the people who have never took a chance with their own life that will try to talk you out of taking a chance on yours. From experience, it’s those people who get it completely wrong in the end.
Spread your magic and DO NOT let other opinions of you dictate your life. Trust that you know yourself more than anyone else and trust that you are capable of amazingness!
