Everything’s seemingly fine… but nothing is really great.
Life’s okay, but something’s lacking and you can’t pinpoint what that is.
If that sounds like you, then it may mean it’s time for a bit of soul-searching and re-discovering.
The best place to start uncovering your truth is to first tidy up your beliefs.
Like a spring clean – get rid of everything that’s not working to create more space for the good things.
Let’s talk about which false beliefs you need to abandon to find your truth and live the life you’re truly happy with!
1. Something’s obviously wrong with me. I have everything I’ve ever wanted and it’s still not enough!
First things first – it’s okay to want more out of life.
Wanting bigger, better things doesn’t make you ungrateful, no matter what everyone else around you may think.
It just makes you… human.
On top of that, should I mention that things change – you change? What was the right fit a few years back doesn’t mean it’s always going to fit your narrative. 😉
2. Why should I think I’m special enough to make something different than the rest?
This is going to sound like a huge cliché but… everyone’s special in their own way.
What you take for granted – what comes so natural to you that you don’t even notice – may be your hidden talent.
Think – what do you love doing so much, and you do it so well, it doesn’t feel like a burden?
That’s what makes you special! Exploring your Zone of Genius may help you find better answers here.
3. But I spent years learning and perfecting my trade! I can’t just abandon it to pursue my dreams!
Being good at something doesn’t always make it your passion. I’m good at design but it took me a few years to realize that design isn’t what I’m here to do.
What’s even more, there’s no such thing as good-for-nothing knowledge.
Every single thing you’ve learned, every single skill you have is transferable, one way or another!
Let’s say, maybe you’ve worked your way up through engineering grad school only to discover years later that baking is your true passion. Does that mean all of that was in vain?
Not at all – trust me when I say, your engineering skills are going to come in handy when you least expect it to!
4. Money can’t buy you happiness!
I absolutely and wholeheartedly agree with you on this one.
However, living a life of TRUE abundance isn’t only about the money.
A true life of abundance means YOU get to define what wealth means for you.
It could be more wiggle room on your calendar. It could be more time to travel. It could be more time for your family.
That’s the whole beauty of the abundance mindset – you decide what wealth looks like!
5. I should stop dreaming and keep it real. This is how things are… and that’s about it!
Dreaming of a better future – a better life! – isn’t lying to yourself.
Telling yourself that everything’s fine when nothing’s fine… now, that doesn’t really fit my definition of keeping it real.
Yes, there’s no such thing as an overnight success but turning your life around isn’t as impossible as you may think.
Be painfully honest with yourself. Where are you now? And where do you want to be?
Only then you can strategically plan how you’re going to get there.
What’s the one lie you can’t seem to shake off to find your truth?
