I set an intention two years ago to write a book. For a year, I sat down almost every week and tried to make that book write itself, but it just wasn’t happening.
I was frustrated and just couldn’t understand why my intention to become an author wasn’t coming true.
Until finally one Sunday morning, I had a nervous breakdown.
Did you know you’re always living your purpose even if you feel like you haven’t found it yet?
Purpose doesn’t need to be discovered. Purpose just desires your Awareness.
Awareness that everything you do is part of a divine plan.
I always wanted to be a part of a big TeleSummit with other top names in the industry, but I knew they had these pesky requirements about list size. I never asked or applied to be on a TeleSummit because I didn’t think my list was big enough.
A voice in my head always said, “Let’s wait. I need 10,000 more people on my list and then all the TeleSummits will be begging to have me speak.”
Surprise surprise! That was actually a self-sabotaging thought dressed up as the truth. Size only matters in your mind!
I just hired a team to help me with my business and I just realized that I set them up for failure.
My parents always told me, “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.” Society taught me that “real men don’t need help and can do anything they want on their own. Support is for wusses.” A part of me still believes that so I set my team up for failure so that my past beliefs would still be true for me.
This is a perfect example of how self-sabotage can fool you and make itself look really noble!
