“No way, that’s crazy.”

How would I ever do that?

When an idea pops into your head one of the first responses our brain has is, “no way, that’s crazy”. We dismiss it and carry on with our day. But then it comes back. Over and over again the thought of something new, like starting a business, going back to school, remodeling a room, finally losing that weight or calling an old friend spins in our head. It begins as a faint whisper, but then turns into a nagging burden until we do something about it.

But that’s where we get stuck.

Even if the idea excites us, we often get stuck on the question of “how”. How would we ever do that?  You don’t have the time to do that. You have two kids, two dogs, one husband, and 100 other things that you have to do. How would you ever have the time or energy to do it?”

And yet, the thought still lingers.

Over the years I’ve battled with my own “how” again and again. But, I learned to move past the feeling of being stuck trying to figure it out before making a move. I’ve come to believe that – If I have a desire for something, the way to achieving that desire is also within me.

I don’t need to figure out “how”. In fact, the “how” is not even important right now.

What is most important to focus on? Coming into a place of alignment, managing your mind. Aligning your thoughts with your feelings. And then the “how” or “way” to your desire always appears.

We can’t change the circumstances, but we can change the thought. We create our own thoughts which trigger feelings that generate action (or inaction). The “how” naturally appears. But it can be scary.

Getting over the fear factor.

We are lucky that there is not much in our lives we genuinely need to fear.  Most of what we are afraid of is not dangerous at all. Being afraid of being embarrassed, of being vulnerable and just showing up – these are not the things that we genuinely need to fear, but fearing them prevents us from taking action….and there is a lot fear in the “how.”  The “how” actually is fear.

Fear is defined as “an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat.”  If all fear is just an unpleasant emotion caused by a belief, we can get over that.

How do you get over it and get started?

If you are craving clarity on your next steps to discovering what is actually possible, want to overcome the fears and doubts that are keeping you stuck and move in the direction towards your dream life then…

    • Say goodbye to anxiety and worries about your next steps AND make room for new thoughts and possibilities.
    • Stop overthinking and get crystal clear on what this next thing might be.
    • Know without a doubt that what you can create and receive is unlimited.
    • Equip yourself with the tools you need to get there.
    • Have the ability to weave it all into where you are now with your current responsibilities.
  • Engage and move forward into your future feeling confident, totally sure of your success and completely “unstoppable”.

If you are ready to discover what is possible and create it for yourself, let’s have an initial discovery session and get started!
