You fear not being good enough, talented enough, or you fear people are going to figure you out. They are going to finally realize that you really don’t know what you’re doing or even talking about! Well let me tell you something, so many people let fear paralyze them from the gate that they never even start! There are so many talented people who will never be recognized and there are a ton of mediocre people out here living their life and being famous because they are “fearless.” Just know that you don’t have to be the best to succeed you just have to stay persistent and consistent and when it comes to love, you have to recognize that everyone is not out to get you! Some people really do just want to love you, but if you keep fearing that’ll you’ll be hurt, you’ll end up getting someone that’s going to hurt you because that is what you’re putting your laser focus on!

How do you know her comments aren’t to make you feel bad because she has issues going on within herself and totally nothing that has to do with you! Why is it that when we can get a ton of praise we feel amazing and then one joker comes along with a bad comment and we take that and run with it! Well, let that go! It's time to start believing in your ability again because if it keeps coming up for you and it puts a smile on your face then you need to be doing it!
3) You’re Concerned of What People May Think
So you don’t want to disappoint your parents who have just spent a boatload of money on your tuition to be a doctor, but you really rather start a bed and breakfast. Today is the day you stop living for other people and you start living for yourself! Why you ask, well it's your life and if you don’t live it fully and out loud in the way you deem necessary, then you will always be walking around in a state of being unsettled because you aren’t doing what you truly desire. Pleasing people is so 2015! This is the year you stand up for yourself and your dreams, and hell, you stand up for the person that you desire to date and be unapologetic about it! Will everyone be happy with this, no, but guess what, you’ll be happy and it will feel like a weight is lifted off of your shoulders allowing you to breathe.
Your mindset is what truly has you messed up in the first place, I mean this should really be number one, but I didn’t write it out that way, insert smiley face here. Your mind is powerful and don’t let anyone tell you different! Your thoughts create your reality and they are why you are exactly where you are today! Yup, you created everything by hyper-focusing on certain things or events thereby having those things you ultimately didn’t want manifest itself in your life. If you interview for a job and afterward you kept saying, “ I won’t get it, I won’t get it” then guess what, you won’t get it! You finally meet a person that takes your breath away at the very sight of them and the chemistry is unlike any other, yet you keep thinking, “They are going to leave me, they are going to leave me,” then most likely the person will walk out of your life because that is what you kept focusing on instead of being present and enjoying the moment. When you change your mindset you change your life! I know you feel you’re meant for better, otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this, so start knowing without an ounce of doubt that you deserve better and you will have better!
5) Self Sabotage
Oh man, life is going great! Projections are exceeding your expectations, you were approved for that 100k loan to start your own company, and you were just proposed to in front of your entire family on Christmas from the love of your life! Wow, what could go wrong right? Well deep down you don’t feel worthy of having things go right in your life, things are feeling too right at the moment and that can be a scary feeling. There is no struggle so how can it be real right, so what do you do, you self-sabotage your efforts. This sabotage is all done in the subconscious mind so sometimes we aren’t aware of this. For example, you start doing things like accidentally sending outdated info to the higher-ups and now they feel you are incompetent and decline to offer you the position you’ve been waiting for, or you had 48 hours to get the proper paperwork into the loan officer so your loan could be finalized, yet you forgot, or you started checking and replying to messages on your dating social app just to see what else was out there and you left the page up on accident running to the car for an item, and guess who is scrolling through your messages when you get back. Well, what you’re ultimately doing is hindering your efforts and pushing yourself further away from your goals. Once you begin to recognize that you are the one keeping you away from all that you desire you can start making the necessary adjustments.
You can absolutely attract everything your little heart desires. The universe is abundant and wants you to have everything you’ve ever wanted but you have to be ready. Start being aware of your thoughts and actions and begin to place them in alignment with your goals and desires. I promise you that once you do this, you will ultimately see a shift that will be so powerful that it will seem like your life is magically coming together.
