C IS FOR COURAGE
Courage plays a huge part in how our lives develop. If you let fear take over, you will not live to your full potential. You will miss out on some wonderful opportunities. Opportunities that would allow you to live the life you probably so wish to have.
You’ll know by now, that I believe we all have a purpose, which stems from our passion, our reason for being. However, many people don’t follow their passion because they don’t think they are good enough. We have voices in our heads telling us; don’t be so silly, you’d never be good at that, or what will other people think? What if we fail? We don’t deserve this happiness … and many other random thoughts that stop us being who we are meant to be … sound familiar? Well, meet your ego!
Imagine you are coming from a place of love, which is our soul purpose … and then imagine your ego isn’t! Your ego doesn’t want you to succeed. Don’t let it win. Imagine you saw a child in the playground being bullied, cruel words being thrown at this poor innocent human being … what would you do? I’m hoping you’d stand in and save this child. Imagine that child is you and your ego is just hurling this abuse, making you feel small, vulnerable and scared. What are you going to say to that ego of yours? Back off … Just back right off. Now, tell yourself …
Use the above as a daily affirmation, it will help to instil a belief in yourself. Courage to move forward into the life you should be living.
Who we are meant to be is deep within, our purpose is to serve … you can only serve by following your true desires. Your passion is a gift for you to use. In some way or another, it will serve you and others. So have the courage to follow this passion.
Therefore, you need to ignore that ego of yours and follow your heart. You must have courage. Having the courage to ignore all the doubts, the nay-sayers, the mood-hoovers and all that negativity that can seep into your pores will give you such happiness and joy. Replace all this negativity with love, remember you are here to serve … this means you have a job to do while you’re here and you will know what that job already is. Now it’s your turn to ignore that egotistical ego of yours, surround it with a warm loving hug and let your courage soar.
