Have you ever felt the desire to take a shot at something new – a job, a relationship, a dream – but then automatically shut yourself down? Ever told yourself, I’m not good enough or It’s too hard; I’ll never figure it out, so why bother…? If you’re scared to try, then I have a video story just for you.
Truth-time, dear friends: we are really, really good at fooling ourselves. We say that we’re so busy, but what we really mean is that we’re scared to look at what’s beneath the busy.
Our frantic activity functions like a drug; it gives us a high and helps us avoid feelings we’re afraid to face.
If that’s you, there’s no judgment here. We’re all on this journey together; none of us have it all figured out.
You know what’s really tiring, what drains the life out of so many of us each day? The belief that we should be someone we’re not … a fantasy self, if you will.
Our fantasy self is the one who will read all of the books in our backlog and cook all of the fancy magazine-style meals.
