Are you ready for something new in your life, your business, your relationships, or your health? Life is all about learning and growing, it’s all part of the journey. One thing that I have learned that has helped me so much is this:
“It’s hard to grow beyond something if you won’t let go of it.”
For years, I desired something different, but I still was clinging to my old comforts that kept in in the same place. We all have a deep desire to be safe, seen, soothed, and secure and our subconscious mind (AKA our ego self/the identity we’ve built based on our conditioning) works to keep us close to these comforts.
What do I mean by my comforts?
Let me share with you some of mine. The #1 comfort I often cling to is staying busy, always being action- because guess what… when I am busy I can continue to ignore what I really need to address, it’s just easier.
Another comfort I discovered a few years ago is scrolling social media. I would tell myself “I have to be on it because I am using it for work.” UNTRUE!
Yes, I set aside time to engage with everyone, but I do not have to be on there all day long, in fact the longer that I am on there the crappier I feel. (TRUTH BOMB right there, how about you?)
Other comforts I’ve clung to in the past are food, alcohol, watching TV, and buying things I really don’t need- again someone they helped me sooth myself and make me feel safe.
What are your comforts? Really think about this today. Isn’t it time you let them go so that you can grow beyond them?
