“It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow, and transform.” ~Roy T. Bennett
Being a recovering procrastinator, self-motivator learner (is that a real term), I’m constantly reading and re-reading books on leadership and management. The popular misconception that they are only pertinent to success in your professional life or business; few people think to carry them into their personal life. But have you given that thought that, if you’re not the leader in your own life, then someone else most certainly will be and they’re not going to lead you in the direction you want to go, but rather in the direction they think you should be going? If you’re not managing your life the same applies.
Regardless of how far away you are from reaching your goals, how life or the world has treated you, don’t devalue your time by giving up, when you give up, you’re devaluing your time and all the work you’ve put into achieving your goal.
A man’s mind, stretched by new ideas, may never return to its original dimensions.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Sometimes we’re tested not to show our weaknesses, but to discover our strengths.
The harder you work for something, the greater you’ll feel when you achieve it.
Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.
Denial is denying the existence of a problem. It’s a standard tactic that substitutes deliberate ignorance for thoughtful planning. Denial is a liar, which compounds the problem by blocking our creative vision towards the possible solution. Denial is a deceiver too. It makes us do things that pleases us & not the things which can resolve the problem.
Accept the truth, accept failure/defeat, accept pain.
It’s the acceptance that brings the positive change.” ~Shahenshah Hafeez Khan
Self-sabotage is when we are excited about a goal, but we unconsciously create obstacles that directly prevent that the achievement of that goal.
For some women, being big, visible and powerful may unconsciously feel like a betrayal of their mothers and to relieve this unconscious guilt, they self-sabotage.
The connection between the Mother Wound and self-sabotage is rather complex. I’ll do my best to elucidate this connection in this blog article. (I suggest grabbing a cup of tea and sitting in a comfy chair. This is a long article!)
