Why We Give Up On The Things We Want Most.

Have you ever been so excited to try something new, chase a goal, or embark on a new endeavor only to later feel discouraged and give up? Maybe what you're interested in accomplishing is too hard, or you don't have enough experience. Perhaps you feel selfish, thinking, "How could I justify spending this time or money on myself when there are bills to pay?" Or my favorite excuse, "It's just not the right time."

Well I hate to break the news to you, but there will NEVER be a "right time" or "enough money" and you may never feel like you have "enough experience".

The good news is: If you have passion, interest, desire, and a yearning in your heart to pursue something. That is ENOUGH. That is all you need. Forget about all those other things. This self doubt that you are feeling is fear, and this fear comes from your ego. Your ego wants you to think you're not good enough, smart enough, or talented enough to pursue your dreams. Nothing crushes the ego more than love. Begin looking at yourself and your dreams from a place of love. Once love enters the equation, the manifestation of your dreams will happen. Love kills the ego, and the ego could be the only thing stopping you from creating the life you've always wanted to live.

You choose your thoughts and your thoughts make up the fabric of your being. If you choose positive thoughts from a place of love, you will experience more abundance, fulfillment, and joy. Becoming mindful of how you think and what your thoughts are will allow you to choose love over fear. You have a choice in every situation you face throughout your day. Choose love, and begin to notice your life moving in the direction you desire.
