Over the years, I’ve been able to come up with all sorts of reasons, of BUTs, why I couldn’t achieve goals I dreamed of accomplishing.
“…it takes money to make money, of which I don’t have enough of.”
“…I’m no salesperson. I’m not going to cajole or manipulate people into buying something that they don’t want.”
“…success is for other people.”
“…I don’t need more to be happy. I’m already happy.”
And that’s really just the tip of the iceberg.
In this, my year of “expansion”, I’ve realized that these are nothing more than excuses, stories I tell myself as to why I can’t have the sort of life I dream of.
Our excuses are just that. Stories. Old stories, at that. Most of which have been given to us by others.
Our stories encompass old programming, which blind us to what is truly possible for us.
When we are able to let go of our old stories, we make room for new ones, and that’s the first step in creating an entirely different life for ourselves. One that we are over the moon to live!
If you could re-write your own story, one in which you are the hero/heroine or even the powerful wizard, what story would you tell? I’d love for you to share it in the comments below!
