What is Holding You Back?
I once read a quote that said, “Let no one cage who you were born to be”. Immediately I thought of myself. I had been the only one holding myself back and caging myself in. It was my own fears and insecurities that were the only thing that held me back from spreading my wings. Over the years as I released and moved through each one of those fears a beautiful person who was always there started to emerge. Life is a journey that is filled with lessons for learning and growth.
People often talk about comfort zones and goal setting. Getting out of our comfort zone is the only way to grow. There are some who find the simple task of getting out of bed not so simple, their fear is that great. Thirty some years ago I was one of those people. I was depressed, over weight and overwhelmed with life. I always thought I had faith but started to search for a better understanding. Learning that to truly have faith one can not be in fear. Faith and fear cannot coexist. I guess it was at that time in my life that my awakening began. All the lessons and challenges that were presented to me through those very difficult years brought me to the place I am today. If I can learn, grow and rise above the ashes of the troubled life I had anyone can. I am no different than anyone reading this now.
My life is good today, it is great! I realize that all I need to be concerned with is today. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow will take care of itself. We are all the same inside, created by the same divinity and because of this we all can grow and be who we were born to be.
Goal setting to me means focus and intention. First, we need to set our intention, whether it is learning something new, assisting someone on their journey, over coming personal fear, changing a career or starting a new business. Once the intention is set then the focus must be directed to achieve your intended outcome. This is goal setting but to me looking at it as intention and focus makes it a softer approach to life. Flowing through life with ease, poise, Gods grace, joy and happiness is my intention and where my focus lies.
