Have you ever felt like you didn’t have enough time or energy to do the things you love?
This is super common!
I received a client update (as part of their homework and accountability plan) and wanted to share their ah-ha insight with you because I believe it will help you.
Although my client was doing well, they felt stressed out, overwhelmed, and like they didn’t have time to put into their health, relationships, and fun.
Through doing their inner work, they realized that they were feeling stressed, low energy, drained and like they didn’t have time for doing the things that they loved because, deep down, they felt guilty for being successful and thriving.
This is huge! This is also a common limiting belief that gets many driven people stuck!
There are two big fears—the fear of success and the fear of failure.
The truth is, the fear of success and thriving gets people just as stuck as the fear of making a mistake or failing.
For this client, they had been doing really well in their career. They were performing at the top of their company, they had experienced more success this past year than they had in the past four years, and they were enjoying what they were doing.
Consciously, they love it!
Subconsciously though, they felt incongruent and felt unworthy of thriving and their business success.
Remember, “you won’t create what you want in life; you create what you believe.” Dr. Lise Janelle.
Consciously they wanted to have this success and thrive, however subconsciously, they didn’t believe they were worthy of it.
This is powerful because if your subconscious mind isn’t on board because it doesn’t feel safe, it won’t allow it to happen.
My client didn’t believe they were worthy or that they were enough, so they ended up unconsciously creating stressors in their life to help them feel enough or feel like they earned it.
Some ways this showed up were through overexerting themselves, overcompensating, stressing themselves out unnecessarily by creating scenarios where their energy was being drained and depleted.
My client was reacting based on past behaviours and beliefs that were created in Stage 1 of Human Development. Rather than consciously creating the life they love, they were being ruled by stories they created when they were younger, rooted in the illusion that they were not enough.
This is important because anytime you are playing outside of your comfort zone, this can bring up fears and limiting beliefs. It is wise to pay attention to these and consciously release them so that they no longer rule you.
My client was able to identify that the reason they weren’t enjoying their life and success was because of an old story. The beauty part of that is that in the next session, we released this story, and since then, they were able to move forward and enjoy their success and the other areas of their life.
Feeling unworthy or not enough, is just an old story. You created it and you can release it! You don’t have to stay stuck.
In this Stage 1, you are taught the illusion that your worth comes from the outside, that success comes from the outside, and that fulfillment comes from the outside. Although this is helpful because it helped drive you and shape your personality while you were not awake, at a certain point you need to let this go if you want to move forward with your dreams.
Stage 1 is Bootcamp.
Stage 2 is where the magic happens!
Stage 2 is where you are conscious and awake. This is the ideal place to live from. This is where you experience TRUE SUCCESS!
In this Stage, you learn that your worth comes from within. That success comes from within, and that fulfillment comes from within.
In order to do this, you need to admit what you want, know that you are worthy of it and get into action to make it happen.
It’s simple, but not easy.
A big reason for that is fear!
Just a reminder, the three clues that you have a subconscious block holding you back are:
- You know what you want to be doing, but you aren’t doing it.
- You know what you want and are doing it, but you are experiencing resistance.
- You are doing it but getting opposite results.
Having fear pop up is a normal part of playing outside of your comfort zone and creating an inspiring life.
The quicker you can identify what is holding you back and be able to connect back to your heart and see the big picture, the faster you will be able to move forward.
I’m proud of my client for taking the time to check in and admit that they had a block holding them back.
The truth is in pursuit of achieving your goals, you will often feel unworthy, not enough, not good enough, unloved, like an imposter, not smart, incapable, like a fraud etc.
These are just stories.
Are you ready to let go of your limiting stories and rewire them to be more loving and supportive of your goals?
What stories are holding you back from living the life that you want?
Start paying attention to where your energy is feeling drained in your life, where you aren’t taking action to do what you would love, where you are experiencing resistance or getting the opposite results.
Those are all clues that you have some inner resistance and may need some help to move forward.
