I want you to stop for a moment and really think about the statement above.
I want you to think about something you really want, something significant, something rather big. Once you know what it is, ask yourself this.
"Who is really stopping me from having it?"
If you're up for being honest with yourself, the answer (which can be pretty scary to admit) usually is,
"no one is really stopping me but me."
One of my private clients recently said to me, "I keep feeling like I'm waiting for someone to give me permission; to enjoy my life, to let go of the story of struggle, to make more money, to really let my life feel easier."
This concept resonates with me very deeply and the more you learn about me, the more you'll realize its no coincidence that I've found my way to this work of teaching women how to step into their power and take control of their life. There's a very deep and personal reason why I care so much about helping a woman feel worthy of the life she truly wants.
The truth is, I've spent much of my life waiting for someone in my family to tell me that I'm smart enough, capable enough and deserving of loving myself and being really happy with my life.
I still have moments where I can feel myself resisting the urge to express too much happiness, for fear that the very act of me loving my life might make those around me feel bad.
We are all on the spectrum of giving ourselves permission to let ourselves really love ourselves and our life.
But the reason why we have to try, the reason why I'm so passionate about the messages I share with you is because I know that everything you want lies on the other side of feeling worthy enough.
When we don't feel deserving, we find a million little ways to sabotage ourselves.
What I hope you'll begin to realize today is that you've only ever needed permission from yourself.
"Deserving and worthiness…these are the notions that get to the pulse of our consciousness and esteem. If you don’t believe you have the right to be here, there will never be enough space for your true self to show up." - Danielle LaPorte
If you don't believe you have the right to feel happy or wealthy or powerful or in love, then you won't. And that my fellow warrior might be the greatest tragedy of your life.
