You say you’ve been committed to what you want…but are you?

Who are you? text vertically along a photo of a woman standing on a beach looking skywards with the text journaling prompts for uncovering who you are below

You say you’ve been committed to what you want…but are you?

 
Your goals. Your vision. Your dreams.

All of the things you say that you want. All the things you say you’re trying to achieve, to manifest.

You want them; you can have them, but have you fully committed to them?

If you’re brutally, radically honest with yourself, then the answer is no. Not fully committed. Not completely.

You haven’t been giving absolutely everything you’ve got to your goals, your vision, your dreams.

Why?

Why do you hold back?

Why do you choose not to do everything you know you could do to achieve your goals?
 

Why have you shied away from being all of who you know you’re meant to be?

 
Fear. Pure and simple.

Holding back is the safer choice.

Because if you hold back and it doesn’t work, then you have a reason. You can say that it didn’t work because you didn’t do this or that.

But…

If you give it everything you’ve got.

If you do everything you know to do.

If each day, every moment, you commit to embodying the you who’s living your vision.
 

If you go ALL the way in and it doesn’t work…

What does that say about you?

 
Doesn’t it mean that there’s something fundamentally wrong with you?

Isn’t that proof that you really aren’t good enough?

NO.

You maybe have a story that it means there’s something wrong with you or that you aren’t good enough.

But, the truth is—it doesn’t.

It doesn’t mean anything except whatever meaning you give it.
 

As long as you hold back, fail to fully commit, and don’t do everything you know to do, then you have a reason for not achieving your goals.

 
A lame as fuck reason, but still a reason—a reason that isn’t about you.

Except, isn’t it still about you?

Sure, it’s easier to say that it didn’t work because you didn’t take this or that action. That’s easier on the ego than saying it didn’t work because you chose to let your fears stop you.

So…

Do you want to cling to the lame as fuck reasons for why you aren’t achieving your goals and living your dreams?

Or
 

Do you want to step up and take full responsibility for your life and be someone who lives their dream life?

 
Part of you wants to cling to the reasons, to the excuses, to the justifications for why you haven’t, why you can’t.

Part of you wants to step up and take charge in creating the outcomes you want.

Which part are you going to listen to?

Remember, you absolutely can Love Your Life and Live Your Dreams. It all begins within.
