“It’s not what you are that’s holding you back, it’s what you think you are.
Wow! I’m not sure if I am truly accepting that I am holding back all my success. Part of me accepts it fully, but it feels off somehow. It feels like I’m putting g myself down, instead of embracing the two sides of this statement, that with the blame for my lack of success, come the possibility that I also have all the power to change it. I know the reasons why I’m not changing are much deeper than I currently know how to handle. Tackling this feels a little overwhelming and letting myself give in to this feeling brings guilt at not trying, as well as a feeling that I’m either lazy or cowardly. All these recriminations are not very helpful, so I often let myself drift away from the whole thought process.
This is why I doubt that I fully and sincerely accept this statement, or what it means to me. I guess I need to be as honest with myself as I am with my fiends who ask me for help with their personal challenges.
How does one learn to listen to ones higher self?
