What pearls have I gathered?
How often have we allowed others' verdicts on our capabilities to set the bar for our ambitions? A common pitfall, and I confess, I've been there too.
The sting is sharper when the discouragement flows from the ones we hold in high regard - a teacher, boss, mentor, or a spiritual guide. Their words weigh heavy as we perceive them to be maestros of life.
But here’s the truth: they sail in the same turbulent waters of life as we do, possibly having anchored their dreams prematurely.
Fear relishes in amplifying these 'advisories', seasoning our self-narrative with a generous dash of drama. The antidote? Self-love, and heaps of it.
Cast your thoughts back, and you may recall an instance when someone pulled the rug from under your feet, trampled your dreams, or tagged you as undeserving. Remember, this doesn’t testify your worth. It’s a shared human experience, and yes, you’re not alone in this. A celebratory moment for shared resilience!
Let’s not let these instances morph into roadblocks.
The quest for others’ validation often is a plea for an easy exit, a confirmation of our self-doubts. It’s time to erase this old tape and record a new, empowering narrative.
Perfection is not the goal; showing up is. Even a flawed attempt towers above inaction.
So, when someone claims your dreams are too lofty, grace them with a knowing smile. While they slumber through life, you’ll be out there, chasing the stars. Every effort to champion your dreams will ripple through your reality, transforming the 'impossible' to 'I’m possible'. Over time, the naysayers may join your cheer squad.
Let them. Your essence of greatness doesn’t waver with external verdicts. You are remarkable, and in your potential, I believe firmly!
Gratitude for the relentless stream of positive vibes!
Sending a universe of love your way! ❤️
