Do you have a conversation in the background that says “I can’t do that, I’m not good enough”?
We can’t all be experts at everything, learning something new takes practice. For a lot of people it isn’t okay that they can’t do something first time. Most people want to give up when things get tough; they just don’t want to do what it takes to achieve it. Saying “I’m not good enough”, is a great way of avoiding being good at something. The reality is that most people fear success more than they do ‘failure’. Like Marianne Williamson said so beautifully ….
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 and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
The next time you say, “I can’t do that”, ask yourself, “is that really true? Am I afraid of something? Do I want to carry on repeating this pattern, or am I going to do something different?”
Remember, if you ‘Do different’ you ‘Get different’ . Learning something new just takes Practice that’s all. So, Practice, Practice, Practice and have fun along the way. Give yourself a pat on the back for being willing to perservere, it’ll pay off in the end!
Do let me know what you’ve been practicing and the difference that’s made to you, and leave a comment.
