Is there something you are telling yourself – about yourself – that is holding you back from being exactly who you want to be? Do you long to express your creativity, but tell yourself you just really aren’t creative enough? Do you want to start a new career path that would be based on a passion, but tell yourself you cannot really succeed at it? Are you in a situation that you know is not healthy for you, but you remain in it anyway – just because you don’t believe you really deserve anything better?
We often do this in our personal lives as well as our professional lives. I call it Head Trash.
“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.” – Anthony Robbins
One of the greatest personal satisfactions I have as a Certified EOS Implementer and Professional Coach is in that occasional moment when somebody cracks open the door to their true beliefs about themselves and allows me to see inside. I often observe in these moments, people who have amazing gifts and talents, yet who are holding themselves back because they refuse to allow themselves to see their true potential.
I recently saw a Steve Harvey video clip where he related our gifts and talents to our own personal parachute. Before our parachute can serve us, we have to jump. But before we can have the confidence to jump, we have to have faith in our parachute. And when we do jump, there is a period of time where we are free-falling. That time can be frightening, or it can be exhilarating. Either way, it is part of the process. But when we pull the cord, and our parachute catches the wind, we begin to soar.
What is your parachute? Do you have faith in your parachute? Is it time for you to jump? When I see clients get beyond their Head Trash, I get to witness them achieve amazing things. For me, that is the pinnacle of my journey to mastery as a coach – being able to see that happen in my clients lives time and time again. To those of you who have allowed me in – I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
