How can we make 2018 the year EVERYTHING CHANGED?
Every single year feels like it’s on repeat… my life has minor changes and I make small improvements, but the framework of my life remains the same. Same job, same routine, same effort, same results. What also remains the same is my desire to make a serious change… to be one of the women I look up to and admire (for me Lisa Messenger, Janine Allis, Lorna Jane). Don’t you believe that you’re bigger than what you’re currently doing? Don’t you want for more? The question is how do I take hold of my life and shift into that next gear?
A motivational speaker once said to me that we work in cycles and in order to break the cycle we need to become fully aware of our own limiting thoughts. In a room of about 100 people, he ran through a quick activity and asked one person to come to the front of the room and introduce themselves for $50. Fifty bucks for doing nothing more than getting off your chair and walking to the front of the room. There were 3 people who got up and ran to the front… I wasn’t one of them. He asked “What was the thought that went through your head which convinced you not to get up?”
I am not good enough. I don’t deserve it.
They were the thoughts that went through my head… completely unaware and totally subconscious. So, subconscious in fact that I had never realised this was my default state of mind. 27 years. It was so shocking for me to realise that these 9 words had been holding me back my entire life. That every opportunity I was given, every challenge that I’d undertaken was met with these same words. I realised that this was my current mantra… these were the words I uttered to myself on a daily basis.
That was in April of 2017… and since that realisation I have made some SERIOUS CHANGES.
I’m usually not one to rave about self-help books, but I could see my self-love and self-worth were in dire need of a bit of TLC. I started with Mastering Your Mean Girl, moved on to The Magic Art of Not Giving a F**k and some entrepreneurial how to guides as well. These were the foundations of the change.
I started going to seminars…. I didn’t know what my passion was, or what I wanted to do. The seminars taught me to ask myself questions like “if you woke up tomorrow and you had $10 billion dollars … what would you do with your time” and “what does your dream life look like… in every single small detail”. For the first time ever, I was manifesting.
Over the next 6 months I spent hours and hours each work working on creating myself a new Mantra “you are enough”, on finding my passion and on visualising my dream life.
Now we’re at the beginning of 2018, and I can just feel this year is going to be a pivotal year for me. I’ve started my own business and its finally taking off, I’ve moved in with my SO and he’s unreal, I’ve slogged it out at the gym for months now and finally feel good about my body! I’ve got my vision board set up and its motivating me every day.
I know how it feels to be in a slump in life….
The only person who can change the outcome of this year is YOU.
Find what’s holding you back, change your inner mantra and change your life.
