Clearing the Way for a New Way of Being Key #3

Posted by on in News | 0 comments

Key #3 Identify who or what you are using as an excuse for not being happy or feeling fulfilled.

Or, put another way…what are you identifying as the reason you are being held back right now?

I call these the “if only’s...”

If only my spouse…

If only my boss…

If only my mother in law…

If only my house…

If only my bank account…

If only I weighed…

If only my kids…

THEN I would be happy!

One of the best lessons I ever learned was “Nothing means anything except the meaning I attach to it.” And the meanings I attach to things are often just an excuse for doing the work on me that will enable me to feel happier and more fulfilled.  It’s much easier to put the blame on someone else or some set of circumstances that keep me from being who I want to be in the world.

Once I accepted responsibility for creating my life (and believe me – this is still a work in progress!) EVERYTHING got much easier.  Choosing to be happy now (not when something changes) has changed my life.

Before you can create a plan for a 2011 filled with the success, love and freedom you deserve, you MUST look at what excuses you are using to hold you back.  If that feels daunting…stay tuned for Key #4 coming to you tomorrow!
