The current world we live in seems to have left us in a fearful disempowered state and a waiting game that is dictated to us by other entities; be that doctors, scientists and governments.
This way of existing leaves us all feeling a bit flat and resonating on a very low frequency. We all have an innate drive to live by our highest values and our highest purpose. When we are living in an incongruent state because of our own limiting beliefs or being dictated to by those around us it leaves us angry, frustrated, uninspired or depressed.
Oprah Winfrey said:
“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”
So what stops each of us living this life of our dreams?
We can blame a pandemic, a government and a particular outside event but what may be more useful is to look inside and see if there are any of our own beliefs holding us back. These are some personal examples I have dealt with recently:
I’m not good enough to do that;
Other people won’t support me if I do that;
I won’t be successful;
I’ll be all alone.
None of these beliefs that I have been running in my head move me in the direction of living the life of my dreams.
So how do we shift these? How do we stop blaming everything and everyone around us and start shifting our own stories and behaviours that are ultimately limiting us from living the life of our dreams?
A really useful exercise to do is to first of all examine our beliefs around something, then to ask ourselves: 1) is it true and 2) is it useful?
For all those beliefs I listed above they most certainly are not true and are not useful, yet they have become the lens I have looked through for possibly my entire life. It has been a journey of slowly shifting these beliefs and although I still have a long way to go I am grateful to say that I am headed in the right direction.
With that being said, next year I will embark on my next adventure in my journey of living the life of my dreams.
At the end of December I will be moving to my practice in Tokai full-time. I have absolutely loved being part of this amazing team at Peak. I don’t have to tell you all how magical this group of people is! As much as I am saying goodbye as a staff member, my role will simply change to that of a practice member being wonderfully cared for by this exceptional bunch. Thank you to each and every one of you, staff, practice members, family and friends for your incredible support.
I want to leave you with one more thought from the brilliant Albert Einstein:
“A ship is always safe at the shore, but that is not what it is built for.”
