Hope you are creating what you dream of! - my wise teacher
I recently reconnected with a wise teacher of mine, and in her usual way, she left me with some wise and simple words: "Hope you are creating what you dream of!"
Many times, we go through life doing what we do but not what we really want to do. Why is that?
Fear and doubt are the main reasons we do not create what we dream of.
We don't start what we must because we get stuck in the what-if's: "What if I fail?" "What if I am not good enough?" "What if I don't know how to do it?" Or the numbing "What will people think or say?" I see this happen in my coaching and in myself. Take for instance, this blog. I had sat on this specific blog idea for over 6 months (yes, that means I had other ideas for blogs for over ten years, yikes). It took a chat with my colleague down the 7 flights of stairs at work where I was rattling off my what if's and she said "So what? Just write the blog."
Thanks for the reminder, dear teacher, and thanks to my friends, colleagues, clients who create their dreams everyday and inspire me to do the same. Talk about support pillars huh!
