“Seek the wisdom that will untie your knot. Seek the path that demands your whole being” - Rumi

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstances permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results." - Unknown

Each of us has a purpose in life whether we're aware of what that purpose is or not. Once you begin to make clear decisions about discovering and understanding your mission and purpose and fulfilling that purpose, and then follow through on your decisions by taking appropriate and consistent action, your subconscious mind will start to “freak out”. Forms of fear, doubt and worry will arise to hold you back and keep you where you are, where there is "the known", the familiar, your comfort zone. This “freak out” is a mechanism of your subconscious mind to keep you “safe”; it's completely normal and par for the course, but these thoughts and beliefs do not serve you and your purpose or the world because they often keep you from moving forward. Recognize these limiting beliefs for what they are: false and designed to maintain the status quo.

If you are feeling any resistance to moving forward, your limiting beliefs are attempting to hold you back from stepping into the power and glory of WHO you really are and what you're here to do. Until you can break free from these beliefs, you will be using much of your energy to counteract those beliefs and you'll never be completely open to allow Spirit to work through you. As a result, life and work will always take hard work to succeed. Yet, when we uncover and disarm these beliefs, the horizon opens up and the wind is at our back making the road ahead much easier. I work with clients to uncover these limiting beliefs (which often stand in stark contrast to what their conscious mind believes) and either reconcile or eliminate them then replace them with beliefs that do support their unlimited growth.

During this period, you must embrace all the faith you can muster- the faith that’s based on the knowledge and experience you’ve amassed over the years. Those beliefs have taken you this far, but to travel further, you need faith and the assistance of those who have successfully traversed this terrain. By getting coaching, support, and studying and applying principles, you will reinforce your faith and your knowing, strengthen your ability to trust and persevere in the face of doubt whether internal or external and more easily pass through the uncertainty. Many people are wise to realize that support and guidance are invaluable at such times. An excellent coach or mentor can make the critical difference between being overwhelmed or blocked by fear, doubt, and insecurity and staying in contact with your inner knowing of what you must do if you're to live your best, fullest and most authentic life. Few people navigating this terrain alone succeed in a big way. Why make it any harder than it needs to be? Don't allow your ego to keep you from getting all the support and guidance you possibly can. Time is of the essence; the world needs your gifts asap.

Once you move through the abyss of doubt and fear, you begin to experience the riches you seek. As Napoleon Hill writes in Think and Grow Rich, “When riches begin to come, they come so quickly and in such great abundance that one will wonder where they’ve been hiding for all the lean years.”

In other words, the success that you seek, the money that you desire, is only going to come when you go past the fear that is stopping you. You have to be willing to rout it out, face it, move past it and then follow your true desire into the unknown. Only when you come out on the other side, will you experience the success you seek.

Through my own journey into the abyss and out again, I learned one of the biggest lessons of my life:

When it comes to your success, you will only go as far as your greatest fear; if you let it, your fear will prevent you from having what you want. The big lesson: facing the fear actually felt much better than living with the fear; and it liberated me.

There will always be more fears. Every time we consider a leap into the unknown, we will feel fear. However, having been through the abyss before, you’re not as unnerved by it the second time or the third or the fourth. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “Do one thing everyday that scares you.” Why? When you do this, facing fear becomes a habit. You don’t rear back from it, you face it and then move through more quickly each time. “Do the uncomfortable thing until it becomes comfortable being uncomfortable.” Well, the same principle applies to fear. It may never become completely comfortable, but it does become less powerful. You will develop muscle and skill in being with fear and that will make it easier and faster over time.

Our potential is only limited by the fear that stops us. If we never allow ourselves to be stopped by fear, we will never encounter any limits to fulfilling our potential and our purpose.

Imagine yourself, like a warrior, you move through every fear that arises. Imagine yourself embodying your true passion, becoming exactly in this life the person you are meant to be. How does that feel? Want that? Take the first step and get valuable support. If you're ready, I'm here for you.
