This is just something I have been wanting to get off my chest for a long time.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Dont be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intutition, they already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs, 2005
It’s taken me years to realize the truth of this statement, although I have been seeing snippets for a while.
If I look back in reflection, I see how many of my actions, behaviours and even beliefs were not that of my own. They were the result of dogma (others’ opinions).
Over a year ago I decided to take my power back and it’s been the most revealing and empowering journey and it continues to amplify each day. It started with small steps and those steps got bigger and bigger as my courage grew. And now, I am beginning to see that I am living the life of my dreams because I took action to make it happen. The most amazing thing is the journey has just started.
The reason I wanted to share this with you is that if you feel trapped, locked or just plain unhappy – you DO have the power to step up to the plate and make the changes you want in your life. Your GUT knows what needs to change.
It’s may take time, it’s going to take commitment, it’s going to take follow through. It’s gonna be painful at times because you are going to have to face yourself. You will make mistakes. It’s okay. It’s all part of the journey.
But what happens as you take your power back, the layers of the bullshit will fall away and you will begin to feel free. You will begin to see who you really are and have always been.
Dream big and make it happen.
Love you all!
