I want to keep this short and sweet.
We all want to be the best version of ourselves that we can be, right?
We all have goals, and at this time of the year, that could take the form of our “New Years Resolutions” list.
You might have a BIG goal, one that you have wanted to achieve for a long time, but for one reason or another, you haven’t been able to accomplish. This could be a business goal, a fitness or health goal, or even setting an intention to improve at the relationships in your life. What is holding you back from accomplishing these goals? Why can’t you “just do it?”
I have a theory, and it’s simply that right now, you might not currently be the “version” of you that can handle or “hold” that type of success in your life.
Let me explain this a little bit more…
You attract in your life what you are ready for. So ask yourself, is the current version of yourself ready for all of that success that you seek? Or, are you still hiding behind old stories, or excuses as to why you can’t do something? Or stuck in the mindset that it’s so much harder for you than it is for other people?
Your ideal self would not be going there. She would not be spending anymore time in some lame story that only holds her back.
You cannot expect to suddenly reach a goal that you have been struggling to meet without really truly getting real with yourself, and determining if who you are right now is even capable of holding that type of success.
The solution? Allow yourself to grow and evolve.
I am constantly asking myself, who is my “ideal self?”
What does she act like? How does she handle stressful situations? How does she treat other people? Is she constantly worrying about money or complaining, or is she choosing to channel her energy in a more positive way?
If my current self is not acting the way ideal self would, then I know I am out of alignment, and I have work to do before I can expect to reach my goals further.
Let me clarify. Your “ideal self” is not perfect. No one is perfect. All I am saying is, to reach the success that you want to reach in any area of life, you have to embody that type of person!
This can be tough to do, especially when you are stuck in old habits and stories about yourself. My advice? Seek out a mentor who can help to keep you accountable on this journey of self growth. Sometimes all we need is a little bit of direction and accountability to become the person we have always dreamed of.
Remember, what you seek is seeking you.
