We’ve talked before about the fact that it doesn’t necessarily come easily to us to focus attention on ourselves and what we want from our life.
It feels self-indulgent. We feel as though we’re being ungrateful for the life we already have.
We know we’re already very lucky, yet we can’t seem to shake the feeling that we want something more for ourselves, something more for our family AND something more for the world around us.
Does that sound familiar?
I believe this is such a pervasive feeling that I created a whole guide, including journaling exercises, to help free us from the gratitude guilt that keeps us stuck and prevents us from fulfilling the potential we know we have within us. (If you want the guide, click here to get your free copy now).
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think you have a big heart. I think you care about the world and feel helpless by what you sometimes see unfolding. It seems like there’s bad news, baffling news or frightening news at every turn and it’s so difficult to know what, if anything, you can do about it.
But, on the other hand, you know the world is amazing. We have opportunities, connections and new possibilities right at our fingertips. That’s the side of the world you want to see more of and, however naïve you feel it is, you want everyone to experience the best the world has to offer and wish you could do something towards making that happen.
Well, let me tell you, you already have. If you’re thinking about what you would like to do for your own personal fulfilment, what you would like to do to find your own something more, then you’re already on your way to making a positive difference in the world.
I believe if you feel that you want something more from your life, making a positive difference in the world starts with honouring that feeling and doing the personal development work to make changes for yourself first.
Think about it. How would you FEEL, what type of ENERGY would you bring to your commitments and responsibilities if your life was based round what matters to you most and you were following your own personal vision of success?
How would this benefit those around you?
How would this affect their lives, so that they in turn could benefit those around them?
Can you see the positive outward effect you’ve created by focusing on your own life, your own personal fulfilment and generally through raising your own life game?
I realise that’s a simplistic summary, but I also reckon you see the train of thought.
It’s not easy, it takes a certain kind of someone. But if you’ve made it this far down the post, I think that someone is you.
What would the world be like if EVERYONE felt fulfilled and successful? What if everyone had the opportunity to be in charge of, and responsible for, their own life?
Think of the peace of mind, heart and increased energy that this could create.
Maybe one day? One person at a time?
