Our minds are masterful liars.
Every day they tell us lies, dozens, hundreds, maybe even thousands.
Our minds lie to protect us, to keep us safe.
To our mind the experience we’re currently having is safe and anything that isn’t our current experience is scary and dangerous and something to be protected against.
Even if the experience you’re working on creating for yourself is better than what you’re experiencing. Your mind still perceives the unknown as a threat.
In an attempt to keep you safe, your mind tells you all sorts of bullshit to stop you from venturing into danger.
When it comes to protecting you, your mind is a brilliant motherfucker. It does its job and it does it well.
If you’re going for a goal, if you’ve got a dream on your heart that you want to manifest, then your #1 obstacle is not how do you make it happen.
Your biggest battle is you—the lies your mind tells you.
All of the stories about why you can’t, why you aren’t enough, why you aren’t deserving, why it’s not the right time, why it’s not for you. They’re ALL lies your mind has concocted to keep you safe.
Because achieving that goal, living that dream is different from the life you’re living now.
And to the mind the new, the different is terrifying.
But you can get there.
You can achieve your goals.
You can live your dreams.
It starts within.
With seeing the lies (as believable as they may feel) as lies, as bullshit. And not as reasons why you can’t.
Because you can. You absofuckinglutely can.
Always remember, you absolutely can Love Your Life and Live Your Dreams. It all begins within.
