A never told before story:
There was a time when I felt stuck.
I knew my results still looked spectacular from the outside.
But to me, they were a failure.
The growth felt too slow,
I felt capped, I knew I was blocking myself – but had no idea how to pivot out
because I couldn’t understand
where I was going wrong.
The matter of fact was that I had kept myself in the same spot – impact, finances and energy-wise – for quite a while – even if I had places to go
much more ambitious than that.
And that’s when it dawned on me – like the fresh morning light:
I had been pushing to hit my goals
because I wanted to keep myself feeling safe, deserving and worthy,
because I needed the wins, I needed the growth.
And this personal need of more…. was not a good enough motivation.
Neither for myself. Or for my soul.
So I kept coasting, bored with the same old level,
But not fired enough to go after the next one.
Then hear this:
You’ve been wanting the good things for the wrong reasons.
And that’s what’s kept you stuck
because you could not see, act and show up
beyond the littleness of your motivation:
Get paid more. Feel better about yourself.
1. Everything you want has been long available to you
for a long series of nows,
BUT you can only give yourself permission to have it
when your motivation to go after it
feels higher, bigger and stronger
than your own little ego mind, hopes and fears.
3. The only way to ever give yourself permission
to hit the next and the next level
is to dissociate yourself from your work.
And fully commit to surrendering to it and serving it
beyond your doubts and fears.
This dissociation is especially important
while you are still healing your own human wounds.
