Who You Are is Enough - Taking the Next Step
I believe you really are, and always have been Well Within; as you learn to access this awareness, you can live more empowered and be fulfilled.
From an internal, quiet space, without all the external noise and confusing messages from others, as well as your mind's internal chattering that causes its own difficulties, you can most correctly determine what your next steps can be to fully access and implement the next steps to living with improved self-esteem.
How do you know what your next steps are supposed to be? Can you trust what your heart and gut &/or intuition tell you they are? Are you ready to face yourself and your life with a new and more positive attitude about yourself? There are many excellent questions...
and unfortunately most people only want quick and easy answers.
In life, while the answers may be quick, the process of living them is not.
Life is a journey that has many detours, obstacles and storms.
Life is often like being on a ship that isn't always in calm waters or with clear skies.
What are your next steps to living your life empowered, whole and fulfilled? Please take time to answer the following 5 questions so that you are better able to determine what your next steps could be.
Taking that next step to living Well Within: 1.
What is my desired outcome? (list your short term, long term, personal, financial, work, social, etc) List your desired outcomes as wishes, goals, hopes, expectations, etc.
for the immediate future and over the next 5-10 years.
WRITE them down.
Give your hopes, dreams, goals, desires, expectations, etc a voice.
Do not judge them or deem them possible or impossible at this time.
This step is for you to really sit with what you want.
(And what you want does matter; you have no chance of achieving a goal if you keep it hidden...
especially from yourself!) 2.
What am I willing to do differently in my life to make my goal(s) a reality.
This question must be asked for each goal, dream, hope, etc.
Remember the old adage about doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome...
? Are you really willing to do anything differently in your life to achieve your goals? 3.
If I knew that I could not fail, what would I do to achieve my desired outcome(s)? All too often, we stop ourselves from doing something we dream about, because we are afraid of the outcome.
The "What ifs" or the analyzing of every possible, probable, even improbable possibilities paralyze us and then we end up doing nothing to achieve our desires.
This is often referred to as "analysis paralysis".
What if you knew you could not fail? What would you do? 4.
On a scale of 0-10 how strong is my desire: Am I willing to face my obstacles, my detractors, my doubts and fears, and trust that I am able to face a new reality? This step allows you time and space to look at those things that get in your way.
You get to decide how much power these issues have and how much power you will give these deterrents.
It is your choice.
Your life is determined by the choices you make, and when you give yourself time to STOP! BREATHE! & FOCUS! You put yourself in a better position to make conscious, purposeful decisions that will move you in the direction of your desired outcome.
On a scale of 0-10 how likely am I to achieve my desired outcome? Is my desire/passion for what I want stronger than my need for someone else's blessing? Am I waiting for someone else's approval before I allow myself to truly step into my life? Am I letting other people's beliefs, perceptions, needs or feelings to determine my actions? This is about your awareness, so that you can make conscious and purposeful decisions for yourself and your life, and feel empowered.
I wish you all the best as you move forward, one step at a time.
You may not always know what the next step is, but you know that you can do something to achieve your desired outcomes.
