Have you ever listened to your inner dialogue and doubted whether it had your best interests at heart?
Is it supporting you towards being your best version of you or hindering you?
If it is telling you to stay in the same place as you are now, to say no to opportunities or things that make you uncomfortable then chances are it has not had your best interests at heart. However, as its been your best friend for so long shouldn’t you keep listening to it ?
A devilish dilemma, right? Quite simply though let’s look at it logically. If it is really your friend it would be happy to see you evolve, grow and experience new things. I bet more often than not, like me, when you have challenged yourself and stepped outside your comfort zone good things have happened as a result.
Travelling the world as a shy teen…. Moving to Dubai not knowing anyone…Leaving teaching in 2008 to start coaching with no clients or salary…Saying yes to live TV…Embarking on my masters in NLP and Life Coaching and certifications in Gallup Strengths…Starting my own coaching company. What are some of yours?
I help my clients live outside their comfort zone and get comfortable being uncomfortable and that’s why they are so successful. The slight discomfort prepared them to grow and raise their standards so that they can become an even better person, spouse, parents or leader. Imagine that same thing happening to you… Beautiful vision, right?
Ask yourself what is more scarier….? Trying to stay the same and ending up a lesser version of yourself now or growing towards your true potential.
If it’s the later then what challenge (opportunity )is your inner dialogue telling you not to do this week? How would you grow from not listening and doing it anyways?
