YES TO OWNING YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS
Innovative, insightful, and impressive people (especially of the female kind) are often uncomfortable with their own success. They sweep their achievements under the rug by saying things like, 'Oh, I didn't do anything. I'm nothing special. I've just been very lucky.'
No more! Own your wins. Celebrate each milestone. Bask in the glory of your own success.
YES TO FORGING YOUR OWN PATH
Don't limit yourself to doing what looks right. Forget off-the-shelf solutions. Everyone has their own unique path. Honor yours.
YES TO LETTING IT BE EASY
Easy means overcoming second-guessing, people-pleasing, overthinking, indecision, and the urge to overcomplicate things. Easy means it feels safe and normal to pursue your dreams. Easy means doing what you can with the resources that you have. Easy means you've released old programming and start to act from a place that is authentic, true, and fun. In short, letting it be easy means you pay more attention to your soul than your ego.
YES TO CHANGING YOUR MIND
We change to adapt to an impermanent reality. That's a fancy way of saying: It's okay to change your course. You can change your mind and alter your plans. It doesn't mean you're doing life wrong, it means you're growing. In the words of Joseph Campbell, 'You must give up the life you planned in order to have the life that is waiting for you.'
YES TO BEING GRATEFUL
Gratitude makes it possible for what you have and what you want to join forces. It also helps you notice what's already stacked in your favor. You probably have more opportunities and resources than you think. That's true for all of us.
YES TO NOT BEING READY
Not feeling ready is a universal sign that we are on the verge of something new and amazing. It's not a stop sign, it's a portal. What's more, when we own our goals and act on them (even if the first steps are tiny and wobbly, even if we can't see the entire road ahead), previously hidden resources and answers make themselves available to us. It can feel super magical, but it's just what happens when we pay more attention to our inner wisdom than our inner critic.
YES TO PLAYING THE HELL OUT OF THE CARDS YOU'RE HOLDING
Like Cheryl Strayed said, 'You don’t have a right to the cards you believe you should have been dealt. You have an obligation to play the hell out of the ones you’re holding.'
