Why you’re playing small and procrastinating on the things that really matter…

I have a dream…

No really I do! 😂

And I know you do, too!

Now we don’t all need to have as grand or noble dreams as Martin L. King…

But where we all want to take a leaf out of his book is that he SHOWED UP and SPOKE UP for his dreams!

He fulfilled his purpose…and so can I and so can you!

The TRUTH however is most of us play small, hide, keep quiet and distract ourselves with “busy” work…

We might SAY we’ll go after our big dream or make something happen…but then we simply procrastinate, say we’ll get to it later when we have more time, money, knowledge, bla bla bla

Basically we BULLSHIT ourselves…

Then we find other people that will pretend to buy our bullshit and in return we will buy theirs so we can feel a little better together…

Come on you know it’s true that’s why it’s funny! 😜

Now to be fair most of this happens unconsciously…

It’s our minds instinctive way to keep us safe

Cause it’s scary as hell to go after our dreams!

I’m terrified and scared most days!

Showing up and speaking up is risky!

People can criticise you, they can judge you and they can reject you! 😱

But you know what I’ve found to be even riskier?

To let that fear take over so that I hide, play small and distract myself with other DOING tasks…

I’ve had the same dream of who I want to be since I’ve been a little girl…

And anytime I didn’t SHOW UP and SPEAK UP for that dream I’ve suffered…

I tried to numb it out with alcohol, drugs, sex, parties, travel, work, success, money…

It only ever works for a short while…

Then I’d need MORE of whatever my addiction of the day was

And the only way out is when I become aware and willing to admit my bullshit!

Yes going after my dreams and desires…it’s scary as f***

It takes courage and true inner confidence to show up and speak up…

To go after all you want in your heart and soul

And as we’re being honest here…building up that kind of confidence doesn’t happen overnight!

Yes, some people become aware of their bullshit and from one day to the next they take MASSIVE ACTION and make leaps and bounds…

I have these big kinda shifts from time to time as well…

But most of the time, for me, it simply happens one baby step at a time…

Everyday I build my confidence a little more…

I have a little more courage…

I can centre myself that much quicker…

Little by little I show up and Speak up more and more

It’s a process…a fun game I get to play!

It’s a game of DOING LESS…

Less things that keep me “busy” and distract me from the things I really want to be doing

Less beating myself up…

Less doubting myself…

Less getting angry and frustrated

Less telling myself that I “can’t do something” or “am not good enough”

And BEING MORE…

Being more of my true self…

My true nature…

Being more fun…

Kinder…

Braver…

Happier…

More creative…

More loving…

More GIVING!

And you know what’s the best part?

Everyday I DO LESS and AM MORE

I get rewarded for it INSTANTLY!

All it takes for you to get started is take that first tiny step…

And I’ve made it super simple for you with this video and worksheet to show up and step up like a boss!
