So, I’m a pretty big believer in the idea that thoughts are things.
So it’s no wonder that I feel like a failure in life when I *believe* the thought that “I should be better, richer, wealthier, more successful.”
And the honest truth is that I am already those things.
Those qualities are already within me:
I am rich – in love and compassion.
I am wealthy – in abundance of life and energy and health. I have shelter and food to sustain me.
I am successful – I’m growing. And isn’t that one of the main purposes in this life anyway?
Now, I may not have all the money I desire, and I may not be where I “think” I should be yet, but the truth is this: I am where I am now because I’m supposed to be here.
And I don’t have to know the reasons why.
I just have to show up in life. Like I know I’m able.
If my purpose really is to love and connect and inspire, I should be feeling like a success each and every day that I’m alive!
So as I sit here and take another deep breath I start to let go. Letting go of all the pressure I put on myself to be something “great” in the eyes of others. Letting go of defining who I am based on the number in my bank account.
Because ultimately we are all in this together. We are all seeking purpose. And drive. A reason for breathing.
So maybe the answer is to simply let go. To find compassion within. For not only others, but for ourselves as well. Because that’s what really matters in this lifetime.
On our death beds, we won’t remember everything, every moment. We’ll only remember the ones that truly meant something.
So my challenge to you is this:
#1: Decide on your purpose. It could be anything. You get to choose.
#2. Let go of the false expectations and beliefs you have for yourself.
#3. Give the gift of compassion. To others, and most importantly, yourself.
Life is too short to live it anxious, depressed, let down, disappointed, discouraged, scared, sad, and lonely.
It’s time to rise up and truly live!
And it all starts right here.
With our thoughts. Our beliefs.
I love you. Thank you so much for reading! I hope this message inspires you to greatness.
Take care, and remember – you are more than your bank account. You are more than the things you own, and the stuff you buy.
You are you. So rock it out!
Go out now and live the best life you could ever imagine – the life of your dreams! (It is possible..) 😉
