Sometimes change can be really hard. You might be putting yourself out there again after a terrible breakup or learning to trust the male species about you’ve been cheated on. Whatever it is, you’re scared about getting hurt again.
However through each of these experiences you’re learning more and more things about yourself. And by acting on these scary scenarios it’s taking you out of your comfort zone.
You might want to give up and give into the temptation to revert back to your old way of doing things. Don’t worry. This is all totally normal and a typical part of this process.
The important thing to get you through those days when you want to quit is to remember the “why”. Why are you doing this? What is your purpose? What do you want to get out of this experience?
After you figure out your “why”, it’s so important to jump into this with 2 feet. This is not a dip your toe in at the edge of the pool kind of stuff. That sends confusing signals out to the universe.
If you want to get clear about what you want, you have to show the universe you’re ready. That means you’re jumping in off the diving board, while in cannon ball position, making the biggest splash possible. You’ve got to commit wholeheartedly because it’s not for the faint of heart.
Whenever you feel your fear and want to immediate curl up in a ball and hide, write down your “why”. Why are you doing this? What is your purpose? What do you want to get out of this experience. Once a day read or rewrite your “why” to remind yourself when the going gets tough.
Commit to your why! Don’t back down and don’t give up. I promise it will be worth it in the end.
