It was April 2015. I'd ordered the book from an advert on Facebook. You know the kind.. just pay the shipping.
I started it straight away, but on this particular day I read the chapter than literally changed the trajectory of my life.
Too often we find ourselves muttering at the mirror, "You again? Why can't you get your act together and go for what you truly desire? Why aren't you taking more risks, speaking up more, being more consistent, connecting better with people?".
These are difficult days when we realise our internal demons are beating us. Those days must come to an end. Now.
Greatness belongs to those who have mastered their internal world. We are all plagued by doubt, but the great nevertheless find faith and begin. We all feel lie delaying action, but the great march on. We all want to avoid vulnerability or act superior over others from time to time, but the great consistently demonstrate openness, humility and love.
These few are not lucky; they are simply more intentional and more practiced at defeating their internal demons. That is why they have so much vitality, motivation and confidence - enlightenment comes to those who free themselves from self-oppression.
Let us choose to make that our aim, and once and for all root out that which holds us back in life. We deserve to be free from all those stirrings within us that compromise our magnificence. For this, let us declare: We Shall Defeat Our Demons
Finally, I was able to articulate what was going on in my head. I wasn't broken. I wasn't a loser. I just had some internal demons, which it appears we all have, and I had to defeat them. Simples. Challenge accepted.
Now I'm going to tell you that everything changed over night. In fact 2015 was a really tough year for me in business, which I allowed to spill over in to my health, happiness and relationships. I was certainly NOT a high performer at that time.
But as 2016 dawned, I knew that I was birthing something new and that I had to give it a gestation period. Things moved, slowly, for another 18 months and then I closed my first business down in September 2017. From that moment on, things started to move swiftly.
Now as I look back on this crazy journey, as a whole decade starts to bid us farewell, I'm proud of myself for getting here. I'm excited by who I've become and the future I'm creating for myself, my family and my community.
When you listen to your soul, she will always guide you home. When you stop trying to logically figure everything out and let go of needing certainty over the journey and the outcome, you are free to live each day fully.
I invite you, to declare that 2020 is the year, the decade that you follow your heart's desire. That you become a conscious creator and a lighthouse to show others the same.
I'm here with you... and if you want more support, I invite you to come and join my Facebook community for plenty of loving and kick ass motivation. xx
