You have big goals and high standards, but every once and awhile fear and doubt creep in. Am I right?
“Who am I to deserve my big dreams?”
If that’s a thought you’ve had before, you’re not alone. It’s a common thought Empoweristas face. But since we’re Empoweristas, we move past this negative thought and replace it with a positive one.
I want you to focus on this thought instead:
“The world needs what I have to offer.”
Say it out loud every day, multiple times if it helps you. But saying it out loud *alone* is not enough.
We're not trying to put a band-aid on it. We’re trying to change the way we think about our talents and passions altogether.
God/the universe/whatever-name-for-our-higher-being-you-feel-comfortable-with gave us our talents and passions for a reason.
You defeated some major odds by simply walking this planet today.
The probability of you existing is about one in 400 trillion according to this awesome Ted Talk you should watch 🙂
Your creation isn’t mediocre, so why would your career or life be? You were created for something big! That big thing that’s on your heart to create isn’t a coincidence. You not only owe it to yourself to create it, you also owe it to the world.
So you can be a part of the group that chooses to respond to this purposeful desire placed on your heart or ignore it. Which will you be?
Marianne Williamson sums it up well:
“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.”
So here is my challenge to you, Empowerista: what have you always wanted to do that would make your light shine a little brighter?... Now go do that!!!
