How can you show up as the leader of your life right now?
Can you identify the opportunities you have in your life to show up as the best YOU?
You know that I LOVE to grasp opportunities that are available to me right now in order to take baby steps toward my goals. Here is a concrete example that is happening at this very moment in my life.
Did I tell you I am doing theater?
Yes! We are currently working on two plays and we start a mini regional tour tomorrow! #Exciting
I love to act because to me, acting is pure FUN.
At this moment, I get to play a character that is somehow challenging for me. It’s a childish character. I don’t feel it. I feel ridicule with it. It doesn’t come easily to me at this moment.
It’s very subtle, but it’s there.
I really want to do this well, have fun with it and move on. I want to be proud of myself with it. Of course, I WANT to do this!
However, there is a contradiction here:
Do I want it to go well? Yes!
Do I allow it to go well? No!
I am thinking about why I can’t do it.
I am thinking about why I don’t want to do it.
Bottom line: when I think about that role, I think about what I don’t want!!!!
Well, no wonder I’m having a hard time with it!!
Let’s look at the flip side:
WHY do I want to do this?
Because I want to experience other characters and create great experiences for an audience.
Because this brings me great JOY.
As I am focusing on this desired outcome and feeling… my perspective is shifted. My vision is so much BIGGER than this specific step. After all, this is what this role is, a step. It’s an opportunity to learn and move toward what I want to create.
Now that I see that resistance clearly, I am faced with a choice: letting go and giving it my all OR holding on to the resistance and struggling to play.
You’ve heard me talk about identifying opportunities and gathering proofs of your progress.
This is it: an opportunity to see yourself/ feel yourself/ know yourself at the next level. An opportunity to know that you can go through that step and that you are growing.
This is a juicy moment – I am aware and therefore I can now CHOOSE.
That’s the stuff!
As I am stepping closer into my Self, my focus is shifting toward what I desire, and the whole game is changed. I choose to give it my all!
What opportunity do you have in your life NOW to choose to let go of resistance and focus on what you desire (i.e. show up in the way you want to show up)?
