And because of it, you never go FULLY IN. You never take that one way jump of no going back, that WILL grow you. That WILL call forth your power. That WILL build all the muscles within you that will have you continually growing and causing bigger and bigger levels of results.
And so it becomes a vicious cycle. The more you don’t do what you know you’re here to do, the more you hold back and sit on the sidelines, watching others get in THEIR game, while dancing round the edges of your own, merely toe dipping into your power like a hokey tokey:
where you put
…. ‘one foot in and the other foot out, you do the hokey tokey and you turn about’
Well, fuck the hokey tokey
You’ve been hokey tokeying for too long, with one foot in and the other foot out
With all the reasons under the sun of why you’re not yet TWO FEET IN on living the life that you TRULY want
All the reasons that FEEL real (and yet, they’re truly not!) on why not you, why not now
Oh, but “one day”… right?
“One day” IS the hokey bloody tokey!!!!!
It’s the lie you tell yourself where you validate the excuses and put off being the person you know you’re here to be. It’s very sneaky, as you know. And it feels all too valid.
I call BULLSHIT on ALL those excuses you’ve been using
Unless you’re BEING that now, claiming that now, and doing the things NOW that you know are you in your heart, no amount of one-daying will change what you’re avoiding now
I had the privilege of working as a Registered Nurse, nursing people in their final days, weeks and months of life. And you know what I heard time and time again?
….. Stories of regret
Yup. Stink eh.
The main themes I heard fell into two categories
Regretting the things they didn’t do, and regretting the person they didn’t allow themselves to be
Let THAT land for a moment
Time and time again, Id hear various versions of this comment
“Kate, I thought the things I was telling myself were actually real! I honestly believed that Id get round to it. And I never did”. They realized, when it was too late, that the things that they THOUGHT were the reason, were actually NOT the reason. And what the REAL reason was, was that they hadn’t, essentially decided to just fucking do it
Ive learnt that regardless of how big, scary or hairy something looks and feels… that there’s ALWAYS a way to create it when I DECIDE
The biggest muscle I’ve built, IS the muscle of DECIDING to have / claim the things that’re calling me
And because of that, I’ve gotten REAALLLLL good at creative solutioning
Which means. When you say YES to the things that’re calling you.. You start developing the ability to really truly create.
It brings forth within you resourcefulness
that you’ll never have access to by continuing to cock block those ideas, through all the excuses and seemingly valid reasons under the sun
You then BECOME someone who creates epic, out of the box solutions.
You think outside the box. Your energy is one that then is magnetic to attracting all sorts of things to come into your space. You start attracting and creating all sorts of things that were seemingly unavailable from the space of the person who said ‘no I can’t because of…….’
You’re swimming in a sea of opportunities
Answers, solutions, possibilities, opportunities are ALL AROUND YOU, and available at all times
However as long as you’re not choosing, not taking action, not owning your power to decide
Then, it’s like there’s horse blinkers on, and you legit can’t even see the abundance of possibilities and solutions
I committed to my kids going to exclusive high end private schools, back years ago when I didn’t have the money to pay for it. $55,000 per year it was going to take, and I only had enough to credit card the first term of fees!!
Now, most people would’ve thought “oh, I can’t afford to send them to a school like that”
Thank God I’ve learnt to NOT think like most people
And so I enrolled the kids, and COMMITTED to myself that I would do everything and anything to expand what was required, and create the money.
AND I did
It grew me. My unshakable commitment to them and their education called me forth at a new level.
I remember one of those early years, $20,000 worth of school fees were due by the end of the week, and I had 6 days to create it (now this was back when I wasn’t earning a lot!). I spent that week activating everything within me. I grew in ways and learnt things that ya just can’t grow and read in a book
By the end of the week, Id created $21,562 IN MY BANK ACCOUNT (with much more rolling in after that also as a result).
See, most people buy into all the reasons of the fear mind on why they can’t BE, DO and HAVE all the things that they want to BE, DO and HAVE. And so they make decisions for the future, based on current circumstances.
Well, if you want nothing to change, that’s a great idea. However, if you do want stuff to shift and expand, you’ll want to rethink and relearn some new ways
Speaking of fear
When I say “BIG BOLD ALIGNED ACTION”, I’m most definitely NOT talking about eliminating fear
In fact, I think that’s half the problem. Peeps are waiting for the fear to go before they ‘do the thing’
Waiting for the ‘right strategy’ to eliminate self doubt BEFORE they can take the next big bold step. It’s such an ass about face approach, and is a key reason that peeps continue to stay stuck cycling back to the same level over and over and over
Fears always going to be there at different points along the journey, so what I’m talking here with “BIG BOLD ALIGNED ACTION” is NOT about eliminating it, it’s ALL about WHO GETS TO BE IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT??
I still get fear kick in, of course. Especially because I’m always creating at newer and nexter levels. So yeah, that old voice pops up, the thing is though, She aint the one running the show round here. I AM!
I’m the one that’s running the damn show. NOT fear.
In the last couple of weeks, I’ve employed THREE new full time team members, and this week I’m interviewing for a full time personal, onsite assistant
I’m doing that because that’s what my future vision is requiring of me
Does it feel like another next big step to increase my team by FOUR full timers in one month alone
And yet, I’m saying yes, taking the action, doing the thing… REGARDLESS
Because I’ve trained myself at that level
And because i’ve trained myself at that level
And consistently operated at that level, now for a VERY long time
I get the results AT that level
