It’s hard to know where or when your personal or professional transformation will happen so I’ve made it a habit to show up for those things that are in alignment with who I am and what I want in my life. I want transformation, Always!!! I love having a breakthrough even when it’s not so fun getting there.
Imagine you are watching a movie, you’re about half way through and the plot is thickening. You’re rooting for the person that’s struggling, finding themselves, and looking forward to the next scene. In the end you feel good because the person has had a major breakthrough, even though it didn’t look like fun and maybe didn’t turn out the way they expected, it was worthwhile. Now imagine you are living your life and sometimes it’s painful and guess what, you will always come out on the other side of pain wiser, you’ll have the ability to integrate and eventually looking back be grateful.
As you practice being open and vulnerable to what may come you may feel a little excitement as you notice your discomfort. And then – the experience moves faster as you will not resist. And when you get to the end of your movie you’ll look back and say hey, that was fun, let’s do it again (well maybe not). Walking through the door to the unknown can be challenging and it’s definitely worth it. The unknown is where all breakthroughs are possible.
If you show up where your intuition leads you, if you let go of resisting pain, if you embrace the unknown and walk through the door, you never know what kindof incredible life change you will have. So choose to show up fully for your life today and stay steady no matter what!
Tools for showing up: ~ Say yes when it feels right and no when it doesn’t, use your intuition ~ Put it in your calendar ~ Stick with your commitments even when it’s unpopular ~ Don’t take yourself to seriously ~ Learn to be with discomfort ~ Take care of yourself
