Fear. It's what holds us back. In my experience the BIGGEST reason people stop trying to improve themselves is FEAR of being judged from others. But This judgement is most likely only coming from your perception of everyone around you. And the most important perception is the opinion of YOURSELF.
We created scenarios of hate and judgement and built a wall of fear so tall that our fight or flight has kicked in. And instead of facing that fear we decided to run away from it. That leads us right back to where we started. Upset, angry and lost. Again.
Now picture that WALL OF FEAR is a mirror. Walk up to it. The mirror reflects yourself 10, 20 and 30 years younger.
What would you tell your YOUNGER self? Would you encourage her? Give her hope and tell her that her future is full of love and happiness? Would you tell her to face her fears and be brave and to know that its OK to fail because there are lessons to be learned so she can be wiser, happier and fully love herself and fully love others?
Now picture your reflection is you 10,20 30 years from now. What does she look like? Happy with laugh lines & surrounded by people she loves? Is she full of adventurous stories? What wisdom would she share with you? Would she give you hope and tell you that your future is love and full of hope? Would she tell you to stop judging yourself? Would she tell you that you are brave and CAN do this? Would she thank you for chasing your dreams and living your best life?
Now picture NOW. Instead go to your mirror NOW. I mean it. Get up. Walk to your bathroom and shut the door. Look at yourself with a smile and Repeat....
