Yes, even on "tax day" - it is a "WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY!" Say it with me now when I ask why that is so -- "As long as there is breath, there is hope!"
"Oh, but I owe more money in taxes than I have in the bank right now!" Are you breathing? Yes? Then take another breath and realize that you are ALIVE and that there is still HOPE no matter what the circumstances look like.
No, that doesn't mean that everything is always the way we wish they were (are they ever??) - but the very fact that we are taking a breath let's us know that we can and WILL survive!
Be sure to listen to today's podcast as I continue the discussion on "Making the Move". Today we look specifically at "Breaking Down the Barriers to the Move".
Really, this goes hand in hand with some earlier discussion we had about "Why Not Me?" and "Why Not Now?" Did you make a list way back then? If you did, find it, look at it and examine those "reasons/excuses" that you wrote down then as you consider the "barriers" that keep you from moving forward. If you did not make that list or have no idea where it is today - take a moment and do that - WHAT ARE YOUR BARRIERS?
How many of them can be summed up in the word, "FEAR"?
My guess is - when you look very closely that you will find the majority (if not all) of them coming under the heading of fear. We're AFRAID to move into the "unknown".
When did we learn that fear? Go back to when you were a kid and think about all of the things you did that were, at first, unknown. We have been TAUGHT fear.
So, share your thoughts - I'd love to hear from you (mike@FutureYouUniversity.com) or you can leave a comment here. Either way, I'd love to hear from you and discuss your barriers.
As I mention on today's podcast, as we discuss the "what if's" (usually all negative, such as "what if it doesn't work?") why not put a positive thought in there with them. WHAT IF THIS MOVE MAKES ME HAPPIER THAN I EVER DREAMED POSSIBLE?
Think about it. Dream it. Do it. And....
Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?
