I believe many times we are our own worst enemy when it comes to allowing good things to happen to us. Maybe it is because somewhere deep down we don’t believe we deserve it. Maybe it is fear of change. If the things we want most happen what will our life look like? Will we be able to handle change?
Let’s face it sometimes we are scared to take leaps or risks that may lead to the life we deep down want, even if this leap only entails a change in your mindset. Are you stopping yourself from what you really want to achieve because you are comfortable where you are right now. It is so true we often talk ourselves out of having the life we want. We think it is crazy or impossible.
I challenge you to work on changing that way of thinking. Believe you can have what you dream of. Don’t worry about the details right now. Just simply start with believing it is possible, and not to be the one that is detrimental to your own dreams. It is understandable that what you want can sometimes be very scary because of change, but what if it is possible and you can have the life you want?
Even if you are sceptical try to allow yourself to be open to this idea. What is the worst that can happen? You will be right where you already are. We can all be a little more open in our lives. Work on being open to new ideas and new beliefs. Being open does not mean that you won’t be true to who you are. The core of who you are is always there.
This time of year when we are spending lots of times with others is a great time to start practicing being more open. Take time to make a conscious effort to see things from another’s perspective. That doesn’t mean what is right for one person is right for you, but leaving yourself open to new ideas in an as non-judgmental way as possible can only lead to more love. We all can allow so much good to come into our lives by doing this.
Being open takes a lot of practice. Start by trying to notice and catch yourself when you are not acting the way you want yourself too. When we can point out the times are mind is closed we can work on changing this. If you put up a wall and are closed, good things cannot flow in as well.
I firmly believe we do this to ourselves all the time. We tell ourselves we can’t. This negative self talk doesn’t leave us open to accepting blessings in our lives. It is a tough thing to change, and something that for most of us will be a lifelong effort. Being aware is the first step.
When you open yourself up, you allow good things to come into your life. Let happiness in, and decided you are not going to be the one keeping it out!
Wishing you many blessings now and always!
