Are you depriving yourself of your optimal state?

Are you depriving yourself of your optimal state?

Have you noticed how easy it is to accomplish your goals when you feel good about yourself? That when things go well, they tend to invite more and more good things?

That is until your habitual thoughts interfere. The kind of thinking that is always waiting for the other shoe to drop, the kind that faults you for celebrating your achievements. The small voice that reminds you not to be too arrogant just because things are going well.

This often takes the form of an internal dialogue. However, sometimes this pops up in the form a post in your social media feed. Sometimes a friend, an acquaintance or loved one feels the need to remind you of this little piece of wisdom.

What I am learning is that my optimal state is when I fully approve of myself. I become more productive. I become magnetic to opportunities, great people and money.

I rob myself of this optimal state whenever I am afraid of how it will look to other people when I approve of my self. Every time I buy into other people’s views of how humility looks like.

I deprive myself of this state whenever I listen to my inner critic, who is sometime mirrored in people around me. Every time I believe that celebrating myself is an affront to others. Whenever I take responsibility for other peoples triggers, censoring myself to avoid being a trigger.
