What do you believe disqualifies you?
by Sarah on November 30, 2017
We all have that thing. A weakness. Achilles heel. Failure from the past. Fear of the future. Compounded effects of stressful events, trauma, chronic illness, loss…
Some of us have all the things.
And, some days we’re good. We show up to life with what we have to give. We feel connected and purposeful, in alignment with what we’re here to do. We may even feel a burst of joy and gratitude in the moment.
Yet, other days, our legs get knocked out from under us. Without our grounding, we feel swept out into the sea of overwhelm. We contract, get small, hunker down and try to control what’s happening around us. Survival kicks in as we try to just make it through the day. And the next day. And the next. And, so on.
It’s in these moments the thoughts become louder:
“You can’t do this.”
“Who do you think you are?”
“See… you don’t have what it takes.”
“You’re never going to have the life you dream of.”
“Your (fill in the blank life circumstance) disqualifies you from living out your purpose.”
I know this all too well.
In my own healing journey, battling Lyme Disease for 20+ years, the “made-for-Instagram” story is that I overcame an incurable disease. And, heck yes, I did! AND, there are days that something gets flipped in my war-torn immune system and the wave sweeps me up, and sometimes under.
For you, it may not be around health. But, it’s that glass ceiling you keep hitting every time opportunity knocks. Or, perhaps, it’s the financial quicksand you’re standing on, trying to get a leg up. Maybe all the hustle you give your passion project that seems to only end in a zero sum game. Or, something else…
What I do know is your story, and what you’re going through, IS what qualifies you. These realities don’t take you out of the game, they lead you into it. There’s just a lot of survival strategies and coping patterns you’ve created to deal with it all that will hold you back until you learn a new way.
If this resonates with you, you’re obviously not alone (I’m with you!). And, if you’re ready to dig deep and develop the resilience you need to stand strong against the force of the waves, I’d love to talk with you. I’m currently booking no pressure, no strings attached, free discovery calls with people eager to commit to taking action on their dreams and goals.
I’ll help you get total clarity about what’s fueling the behavior patterns you feel stuck in and the action steps you need to take to change them. If you want my help, and we both determine it’s a good fit, I’m happy to share the opportunities for practical support along with some deep Holiday discounted prices I’m offering through the end of the year. Regardless, you’ll get a ton of value and we’ll try and have a little fun while we’re at it 😉 .
I look forward to speaking with you soon!
