What's holding you back?

What do you want for your life?

Is that a difficult question for you to answer?   

When we are unaware of what we really want, it is difficult to find the path. This is true in relationships, career, health, or any area of life. There is something holding you back from either defining what you really want or pursuing it or both.

You are worth an abundant life of success, joy and fulfillment. I absolutely believe that!  Do you believe that?  Do you REALLY believe that?

I am so passionate about coaching people because I don’t want anyone living with the regret of untapped potential, unmet desires and limited impact in their life. Believe me, I know as well as anyone that there are many challenging life circumstances outside our control that can interrupt our life pursuits. However, the most common thing holding my clients back in their personal and professional life is their own scarcity mindset. Honestly speaking, it is what holds me back.

Think of something you desire in your life and it isn't happening. Are these coming up for you in some form of thinking?

I don’t have enough. 

I am not enough.   

There isn’t enough.

This is a scarcity mindset and it does not serve you well.  You have not taken a hold of the belief that you are entitled to YOUR abundant life. You have not grasped all that is inside of you. Scarcity mindset comes from not fully knowing yourself, what you want and what’s within you to help you get there. There will always be unhealthy discontent in your life when you have in a scarcity mindset. 

Do you find yourself thinking like this?

I wish I was skinny. It must be nice to have a spouse like that. My house will never be that great. Who am I to build this business? I wish I had a nice car. Nobody looks at me that way. They never chose me. I wish they liked me. There are only limited spots, so I won’t get it. My ideas are stupid. Nobody listens to me. If I only I had… I will never be….”

This is scarcity thinking and it holds us back from abundant living. Abundance mindset flows out of a deep inner sense of personal worth or security. Scarcity focuses on what we don’t have. Abundant thinking is an attitude and mindset that focuses on what we do have. It allows us to see possibility rather than limits.

Would you say that your mind, heart, mouth, emotions and actions are in alignment daily with abundance thinking?

YOUR truth is the combination of the things that you think, believe, desire and act on consistently.

Maybe you know that you want better in some area of your life, but you just can’t seem to make the progress you want. You get excited. You commit. You start taking action. Then, you get stalled or discouraged or overwhelmed. When our mind says one thing and we do something else, we create and reinforce our own uncertainty, doubt, fear and chaos. You are most likely allowing a scarcity mindset to take over and limit the action you need to follow through. 

YOUR truth is the combination of the things that you think, believe, desire and act on consistently.

Unlocking true joy and fulfillment in life comes when you align YOUR truth to an abundance mindset. It becomes YOUR truth when you take it, own it, live by it. Otherwise…. it is just words or thoughts. 

Here some keys to aligning YOUR truth to an abundance mindset:

  1. Commit to the belief that you deserve a life of abundance.
  2. Believe that there is something greater within you to tap into.
  3. Get clear on who you are: your values + your beliefs + your views. 
  4. Define what you want in every area of your life.
  5. Get specific about the unique value that you bring in business and your relationships.
  6. Practice gratitude for everything that you have and everything you discover on the journey.
  7. Be inspired and celebrate what you can learn from others in your life.
  8. Daily, tap into YOUR truth, take a hold of it, run with it and make things happen.

I am not telling you that this is an easy list to accomplish. Doing this self-work is ongoing. It is part of the journey to unlocking a life of joy and fulfillment daily.  It starts with BELIEF that you are worthy!

YOUR truth is the combination of the things that you think, believe, desire and act on consistently.

YOU have a responsibility to tap into YOUR truth. YOU deserve to align YOUR truth with abundance. The world needs you living YOUR truth!
