When you see what you want to see or believe what you want to believe, you have fear goggles on.
Fear goggles hide the truth of what is real.
Fear goggles hide you behind a mask and distort what you see, so that you only see the limited picture of what you are seeing.
Much like beer goggles, fear goggles do not show you what is the truth with a clear head. They distort your image.
Moving forward is a change that brings up much fear for many.
It is connected to many different and common fears that most aren’t aware of.
Moving forward is about letting go. It is about creating change and disrupting your “comfortable” space. It is about movement and newness. It is about placing yourself in unknown territory. And it is about Faith and Trust.
Moving forward isn’t always so easy for some. They prefer to stay stuck, frustrated and angry.
We all have a money story. Each individual’s experience is self created despite what that story is.
If you are in a place where your story is one of lack or poverty, chances are that your beliefs will highlight that you did not create this.
Those that are in a more abundant space, will certainly own up to their story, that they did indeed create their current reality.
When you are stuck in a negative money story, you create experiences, cycles, patterns and loops that just keep repeating themselves.
We all have fears. They challenge us, anger us, push us into a corner and keep us stuck.
Yet how do you overcome them?
Fears are just emotion. Just like happiness but the opposite.
Fears feel heavy, they are scary, intimidating and quite often a huge barrier where you can’t see what is on the other side.
But if you push fear aside and decide not to look at it closely, it will either slip away and connect itself to you on a deeper level, and it will mostly certainly jump out and scare you just when you thought you had a handle on it.
You have fears. You know what they are.
We have all met them. Most of us are related to them or currently are or have been in a relationship with them.
What do they do? Steal your dreams.
Have you ever been so excited about something you wanted to do and in your excitement decided to share that news with someone, only for your balloon to be popped and inflated?
“Why do you want to do that for?” they say. “It’ll never work.” “You won’t achieve it.” “You will fail.” And on and on they go, with all the reasons why it can’t happen.
Suddenly that excitement that you felt just disappeared. POP! Gone!
When you play small, who is it really serving?
When you limit yourself or be something you are not, who are you making happy?
Unfortunately this is a common theme among humanity.
You play and splash about in the small pond because you think that you will drown in the big pond.
You dumb yourself down so that others will be happy. So that others will follow you. So that others will love you.
But what part of you do they really love? The limiting part of you?
Or the magnificent part? A part you haven’t even touched upon yet?
We all have triggers. We all have drivers.
What motivates one person, does not motivate another.
What lifts one person up, brings another down.
What is your driver?
Driving forces in life are about what motivates you to change and greatness.
What is it that pushes you forward past the pain and the stagnant place in your life to want to lift yourself up for more? For better?
What keeps you down? And why do you let yourself stay there?
