There isn’t anything like self-doubt that stops us from doing what we would like in life. The continuous negative and disempowering self talk, that so many of us often don’t even notice is going on, makes you feel less confident, shakes your sense of self-worth and self-esteem, and keeps you stuck with thoughts like:
- Who am I to even want this
- Nothing is working out for me
- I should be more courageous
- I am not good enough
- I’m too shy or too introverted
- This is just too hard for me
- I can’t, because …
If you recognize yourself in these, I want you to know that you’re not alone! Thoughts like these occur to most people every so often.
However, if you’re used to hesitating and doubting and then feeling not confident and worthy enough, pulling back from life’s adventures, then this is your opportunity to strengthen your confidence muscles, align with who you really are, so that you are ready for the bigger and better adventures you’ve longed for.
And it starts by answering to the life’s calling. Not pulling away from it, even when you don’t yet know where it leads.
For me, life’s calling has lately been to get things organized and in order across all areas of my life. The corners of our home, the areas of my relationships and the parts of my business, that have been somewhat neglected and not as cared for as other corners, areas or parts, are now getting more attention. I’m drawn to get it all sorted, piece by piece.
I don’t know why particularly at this time of the year it always seems to be somehow easier to follow the life’s calling without much resistance.
Maybe it has something to do with the natural tendency to turn more inwards during winter time and the darkest days of the year.
Nonetheless, the flow of life is so much more smooth when answering the call without resistance.
When we feel life’s calling, our job is not to resist, because we don’t feel we’re good enough or capable enough or worthy enough. Our job is to do the work within and answer life’s calling to the best of our abilities, no matter what it is about.
That’s the only way of living a satisfied, full life.
Ps. If you’d like, I’m here to help you to shift your focus, reconnect with your inner truth and to strengthen that confident mindset in order for you to say yes to life’s calling and see the possibilities that are in store for you.
