As a life coach, one question I hear repeatedly is, “Why does life have to be so hard?” I know what it means to feel that way, I’ve been there! The good news is that I’ve discovered an important key to creating ease and flow in your life: You must feel like you deserve it.
So often clients feel undeserving. They don’t feel “good enough” for a life of happiness and joy. They take to heart the belittling comments others have said to them and are fearful of expecting anything different than the life they have now. They are kicking themselves for decisions they now regret or harsh words they may have spoken. The reason? They allow their beliefs about themselves to be shaped by way lay outside of them. In truth, all that you are lay within.
What is the number one thing you need to shift your mindset and live a life of ease and flow?
- You must commit to love and appreciate yourself.
- You must commit to release the opinions of others and form your own opinion about who you are and what you stand for.
- You must commit to focus only on your desire, not the gap between where you are and where you want to be.
- You must commit to look for the good in everything (including yourself). Gratitude rocks!
- You must commit to release the baggage holding your back. That means any anger, resentment, and/or bitterness that you are holding against yourself or others.
- You must commit to look for the chance each day to play and laugh!
- You must commit to change patters of behavior that are not working in your best interest.
Just remember, you and I are made of the same stuff. We come into the world the same way. We all have feelings to manage. We all want to feel loved, appreciated, respected, and happy.
You deserve to live a life of ease and flow! Are you committed?
