The moment we decide we want to do more, a negative force comes to push us back. Leadership and challenges come hand in hand. This because if it is too easy, then it is not real or fulfilling (remember the spiritual principle of earnership). There has to be a challenger to make the trophy meaningful.
Our ace in the hole is to be aware of this universal principal, and to make the commitment to re-educate how we react. When the push back happens – go forward. Do the opposite of what your fears and doubts are telling you to do. – Yehuda Berg
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you did not move forward. Was it fear that held you back? Lack of confidence? Listening to other people? Not listening to your inner voice? Lack of finances? Lack of knowledge?
For myself, yes to all the above. I have had so many ideas come to my mind, that I was beginning to think that I should just become a professional muse. The bad thing about doing this is that the moment money enters into the muse aspect, for me anyway, the ideas dry up. It is funny how you can see so many starving artists, so to speak, that create the best work when they are hungry. (Remember that I said I have been a gypsy most of my life – I have seen a lot of stupefying artists.) Is it the fear of the unknown that takes over the wish to step into the next phase of success, and then opens the mind to express the fears on canvas or in the words written?
Are you able to push back? Have faith in what your ‘voice ‘ is saying. Face the challenges, take that breath and step through the portal.
