That’s not good enough!

Have you ever said or thought phrases like, “That’s not good enough?”
While there are people who can easily shove these occasional thoughts aside, there are others who are holding onto an underlying belief that they’re not enough.
When I was in grade school and the teacher would ask me a question, I would claim that I didn’t know the answer even when I did. I was afraid to speak up in class because my answers might not be good enough. There were times when I felt that I needed to minimize my success and downplay my accomplishments because I wanted people to like me. Otherwise, I just wasn’t good enough. These are just some examples of how this belief can show up for us in our lives.
However, this does not have to be the case for any of us. First of all, see this belief for the lie that it is.
After all, if we are infinite spiritual beings who happen to be residing in human bodies at the moment, how can we truly be anything less than enough? Also, it can be helpful to explore the reasons for adopting these beliefs. During this process, I encourage you to seek support in order to deal with the strong feelings that may come up. While I still have this belief popping up from time to time, I try to keep things in perspective and have lots of compassion for myself. Sometimes, this is the best that we can do.

I don’t fit in, and neither do you.

Have you ever felt as though you do not fit into society’s norms and expectations? It took me several years to realize that it’s okay.
You were created that way, and so was I. Many of us grew up with parents who were doing the 9 to 5 thing and trying to fit into the neat little boxes that were set out for them. Then, you come along. You may have been told that you’re too sensitive, too shy, or even weird. Maybe you have even been mislabeled as having one or more psychiatric conditions. Maybe you have even tried so hard to please others and to fit in that you actually developed one of those conditions.
Then, you may have decided that the 9 to 5 thing wasn’t really for you, so you ventured out into the unknown while you may have been told to get a real job and get it together.
Guess what? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with you. There is nothing wrong with the people in your life, either. They are doing the best they can with what they know, and so are you. You did not come here to fit into someone else’s box. You came here to be of service in your own unique way.

Have you been visited by the I’m not ready monster?

Whenever I’m about to go for something that I want, there is always a surge of excitement. However, the second that I’m about to take a big leap of faith in the direction of my desires, that little fear monster in my head tries to convince me that I’m not ready.
This can happen for one of two main reasons. Firstly, your intuition may be trying to tell you something. You may need more information before going forward, or the timing may not be right.
The second reason for your visit from the I’m not ready monster is fear. If this is the case, examine this fear more closely. Is it really justified? If not, go ahead with your leap of faith. Remember that you won’t have to do it alone.
You always have support from the spirit world, and you could always talk to a trustworthy friend, hire a coach, or find a mentor.
