I can’t afford it.

I’m too busy.

I don’t really need it.

I’ll do it later.

I don’t deserve it.

I’m in a good place right now.

What lame excuse is your inner critic using to keep you where you are? What lies are you telling yourself to avoid taking any action on this divine window of opportunity that just dropped into your lap?

Think about it. Which self defeating excuses are you desperately clinging to in order to stay in the exact same place you totally wish you were not in? Let me ask that again. How many of these signals of fear and doubt are keeping you in the exact place you have been in and do not want to be?

Stop desperately clinging to what you Do know out of fear of what you Don’t know.

Seriously stop it!

This is NOT a coincidence or dumb luck. You specifically asked for a chance and it is being given to you. You asked for this situation and it has presented itself. You cried out for the window to open and it has. It’s okay. Embrace this moment.

You ARE well prepared to take this on!

You ARE deserving of this moment!

This IS the time to do it!

Yes, you ARE perfected exactly as you are for this very moment!

Oh yes you CAN afford it!

You DO have the time!

Allow this truth to soak into your spirit for a moment longer. Know it. Receive it. Feel it.

Pay attention. Your soul is calling for you too:

Make a Bold Decision to Believe

Now that the whispers of your soul are being answered, you have a choice to believe this is your opportunity. Be bold. Be courageous. Believe. Decide that you are ready for this moment. Challenge the thoughts that are negative and defeating. Open yourself to receive what is being given.

Hold onto Your Hope and Faith

Things may not look like this is the opportunity that you asked for. This may not be the way you dreamed it would present itself, yet something within you is connected to this moment. Trust the wisdom of your highest self. Speak to the hope and faith you have. Write it down. Remind yourself of why this is exactly what you wanted.

Create Positive Expectation

It is often said you get exactly what you expect. Set the atmosphere with your thoughts.

Expect the best. Expect things to flow. Expect doors to open. Expect to overcome any obstacles in your path. Expect people to help you. Expect all things to work for your good.

Take Action Now

It is called a window of opportunity because it will not last forever. What often separates successful people from everyone else is that they did not wait when the opportunity presented itself. They did not allow themselves to over analyze, over think, and procrastinate on taking action. The circumstances do not need to be ideal. The circumstances only need to be right. Figure out the first step and take action right now.

Keep Moving Forward

Your inner critic isn’t going away without a fight. Having a positive mindset is a journey. If you are anything like me, once you start, you may think of many reasons to pause, stop, turn around, or sit down. Don’t do it. Be focused. Be consistent. Be determined. Keep making progress in the direction of your purpose. It’s time to look within. It’s time to get out of your own way and stop sabotaging your own results.

Pick at least one or two of these tips today and start doing them. Which tip seemed like the biggest challenge for you? Now that you have taken action, how are you feeling? What changes are you noticing about your results?
