It was just a few years ago.
I felt like a prisoner in my own life.
I hated where I lived, felt stalled in my career, and — having reached my early 30s — felt devastated that I hadn’t made more of myself or my life.
I felt like a failure. Can you relate to this difficulty of not knowing how to become who you want to be?
You’d think this would inspire me to action, but it just depressed me.
I couldn’t commit to anything. Felt paralyzed by doubt, fear and indecision. Looked everywhere for answers except the one place they could actually be found.
I wanted one thing: to take who I was and become who I wanted to be.
I knew I was smart, knew I was made for more, but my dreams felt so far away, I didn’t even know what they were anymore.
Finally, after quitting my corporate job I hated, I wrote freelance, fulfilling an old dream.
But after achieving a big goal — an article I wrote appeared on the front page of a glossy magazine — my insides felt empty.
Nothing. This still wasn’t it. My passion. My purpose. My potential. Unfulfilled.
At this point, it would have been easy to stop believing in better possibilities.
To think that maybe my dreams were delusions of grandeur, after all. That wild success and amazing lives were for other people, not for me.
But for some reason, I kept believing. I knew my heart held beautiful words I’d not yet expressed.
I knew life had gorgeous moments to surprise me with.
I knew anything was possible. As long as you’re breathing, you still have the chance to become who you want to be.
The dream stayed alive, to actually live out the big dreams contained in my heart, to believe in myself enough to just go for it.
But how? Maybe you can relate.
How to become who you want to be.
Maybe you long for more, to become who you want to be, but feel overwhelmed and have no idea how to get it, or even clarity on exactly what it is you want.
The answers to these questions all lie within. It’s not that life will change for you. You’re smart. You know that these times of difficulty are times for you to rise up.
But you have to rise up in the right way. The way that’s meant for your soul.
It’s easy to rise up with fire, anger and resistance, wielding a baseball bat and smashing through brick walls.
That’s the opposite of ease and flow. It doesn’t feel good. It’s not how it’s meant to be.
There’s another way, a middle path between overheated fury and the weakness of doubt, fear and indecision.
A path fueled by excitement and inspired ideas. Where your soul, your true self, lovingly and knowingly guides your every move.
And best of all — you trust yourself enough to listen.
^^^ That is everything right there, and why you could fail to become who you want to be.
This is the path of the ambitious, spiritual person. The one who deeply desires to honor her soul without sacrificing her desires for success, crazy love, and abundance.
It’s not crazy to want big things. It’s crazy to let anything stop you from creating the life your heart calls for.
Listening to your inner guidance and intuition is how to take who you are and become who you want to be.
Back to the story — by this time, my spirituality was deepening. I was meditating, feeling my feelings, and tuning into my soul.
Finally, my soul spoke.
I didn’t like what it said.
It took me a long time to listen.
The voice said, “accept your life, take advantage of the opportunities before you, and everything will change.”
This was the one of the hardest things I ever had to do.
But it changed everything.
I went from feeling paralyzed in life, wondering when my turn would come, to chasing my dreams, rekindling my long-lost sense of adventure and fun, and believing in my own goodness, my worthiness to receive all that I longed for.
I stopped looking for someone to show me a path and began to carve my own. For the first time in a long time, my life felt like me. The real me.
I want you to have an unshakeable connection to your inner guidance and intuition, too.
How would it change your life to not only hear your inner voice, but believe in yourself enough to listen?
What would it mean to you to stop allowing fear (or outside judgment and expectation) to make you small and instead rise up to declare that you deserve to experience the longings in your heart?
It’s your sacred responsibility to realize the dreams within you. To become who you want to be.
Unfortunately, many people block themselves from receiving the all-important messages from their intuition. That’s why so many people have trouble hearing their inner voice.
Are you you interested in learning a reliable way to hear your inner wisdom and release the things blocking your way? If so, great because I have some powerful tips coming to you tomorrow!
