👉🏽 Once I do “x,” I’ll do “y.”
👉🏽 Things are a little chaotic right now, “X” will be a better time
👉🏽 This works for my schedule now
These statements are fear disguising itself as practicality. It is a conditioned response to keep you in perceived ease and comfort. The pull of ease and comfort is strong. Like Death Start, gravity ray strong. 😂
It makes total sense to you in your head. So you chalk it up to being logical. But it’s not logical. It’s an emotion that wants to keep you where you are, promising ease and flow, but it’s anything but.
We all have an innate desire to grow to blossom if you will. And along with that desire to grow comes fear. Nobody is immune to this, and it is totally normal.
To grow = to push out of your comfort zone. 👊🏽
To move out of your comfort zone = the unknown. 😱
The unknown triggers the emergency button of your ego, and “poof,” it wakes up and starts to take over. It hijacks you, and you begin to identify with it, and you think all those thoughts and feelings are you, and now you are running on auto piolet away from how your soul wants to grow.
But it will feel at the time like it is the prudent thing to do. But look back on your life. Do you see a pattern of “practical” decisions that have stopped you from moving forward?
More than likely, yes! Well, that is a conditioned fear response, my friend. And each time you went along with it, you stopped your growth and strengthened the response.
This post is for everybody. I am very driven, but I also see this in my life. I choose to consciously choose my life and grow into the uncomfortableness of growth because not allowing my soul to expand is more torturous than any fear presented as real and practical.
It’s not just working out, it’s building a foundation for a better life.
