I used to believe that perfection was possible. Why not! If I work hard enough to focus my attention and intention, why can’t I be perfect?
This drive is a great superpower for me…It is also kryptonite. 🦠
This thinking is so rooted in my fear of not being enough, and it was so strong that I believed it was just who I was. It wasn’t until life popped me in the face ( a couple of times 😅) did I notice that this is an “𝙤𝙗𝙨𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙛𝙚𝙖𝙧 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙩𝙚,” not an “𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗲𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗼 𝗯𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗯𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲.”
It made my life not so fun and never let me feel my place in this universe because I was always obsessively trying to run away and get better or achieve something else, so I didn’t have to feel.
This has given me a great vision of the people who come to my studio for help. I can tell with almost 99% accuracy who will succeed and who will fail. I can see it in their eyes.
I can see how fear clouds their thoughts, actions, and perceptions. I can see it because I saw it in myself. Of course, their fear manifested differently than mine, but you can see it in their actions, how they speak, and the actions or non-action that they do.
Awareness of this fear is the only way out. Thank goodness I saw it.
It’s not that hard to see if you are willing to look because how you do anything is how you do everything.
👉🏽 Do you notice similar patterns that derail you?
👉🏽 Do you constantly find yourself in a similar situation?
👉🏽 Do your thoughts and feeling make you feel ridged?
This is not an exhaustive list, but a start if you still need to. As challenging as it is to see someone keep getting taken down by their fears, it is Fu*ken exhilarating to see them work through the experience and come out of it a human being more significant than they could have imagined.
Fears. We all got them, but they don’t have to get us.
I’d love to hear your thought on this.
It’s not just working out, it’s building a foundation for a better life.
