So many people hide in their lives. They hide their talents, gifts and resources. They only half show up at work, in relationships and their personal life. They live half a life. To afraid to accept all that they are. They also don't know who they are. They are lost. On the outside they appear happy, successful and content. Yet in their inner world they are lost in the vast landscape of judgement, fears, repression, shame, stories, old beliefs, thoughts and the flood of emotions.
You are not alone. I see this is so many people, my clients and also in me in the past. I was afraid to let my light shine. I played small and got small results. Life was a restricted playground where I placed huge limitations upon myself. Anxiety, fear, and depression became part of my life. Until ten years ago when I began to release the restrictions I placed upon myself. I stopped worrying about what others thoughts of me and began to love myself. I saw the emotions were messages from my body to step up and accept who I am.
What is stopping you from being all that who you are?
Imagine that as human being you are a system. A system of a mind, body and heart. Within that system resides all your abilities, gifts, uniqueness, talents, skills and resources. If your thoughts, belief system, stories you tell yourself, lack of self love, compassion and self worth get in the way it's so difficult to fully show up with all that you are. For some people this can also manifests as anxiety, sexual dysfunction, playing small, depression, fear, dysfunctional relationships and addictions.
How to be more of who you are
To become all that you truly are is a journey of the mind, body and heart. A journey into your inner landscape. A rediscovery and reconnection to self love, compassion and kindness. An acceptance and forgiveness of what has been. A new way to work with your thoughts. A return to the home of your heart. To learn how to use and bring forth these talents, abilities, skills and gifts into your work, life and relationships.
Life is not about perfection
Do not get caught up in the trap of perfection. I use to think that I had to be perfect before I could do the things I wanted and that my anxiety and fears would need to be banished before I step up in my life and fully show up. Life doesn't work like that. Anxiety and fear can co-exist with love, talents and abilities - you can still move forward in your life.
See the you within
Look in the mirror and see beyond all that you think you are. Begin to see the real truth of who you are. Live this truth and your talents, skills, gifts, and resources will flourish within you and expand out into the world.
Here are some powerful words from Les Brown. Read them. Feel them. Embody them. and then act. Do not let your abilities, dreams, ideas, and talents fade away and die before you give yourself permission and an opportunity to breathe life into them.
"Imagine if you will being on your death bed – And standing around your bed – the ghosts of the ideas, the dreams, the abilities, the talents given to you by life.
And that you for whatever reason, you never acted on those ideas, you never pursued that dream, you never used those talents, we never saw your leadership, you never used your voice, you never wrote that book.
And there they are standing around your bed looking at you with large angry eyes saying we came to you, and only you could have given us life! Now we must die with you forever.
The question is – if you die today what ideas, what dreams, what abilities, what talents, what gifts, would die with you?"
