It’s that voice inside me that constantly reminds me that I don’t deserve to be happy or have a good life.
We all have this voice, it’s the “I’m not worthy and I don’t deserve Love” voice.
Can you identify with that?
As I’ve grown and expanded, I’ve seen that the forces in the external world – like “haters,” “naysayers” or members of my family that don’t believe in what I’m doing pale in comparison to the enemy within.
Now – that voice that likes to keep me small is an enemy and it’s also my friend.
Enemies are friends showing us our dark sides.
You see – there’s a part of me that wants to survive and it believes that to survive I can’t live a big life. But that’s just not true. I’ve found that the need for survival has been the silent killer of my dreams for years.
I’ve taken action, even though I was afraid and the results have been so cool. But – the fear remains.
I just got back from being on the road for over a month. I spent three weeks in Maui teaching and then was on the road for our first Daily Love tour.
Soon, I will be going to Bali for a month to finish my book and lead a Writer’s Mastermind and then I will be doing some more tour dates in the US. And – at the end of the month I will be leading Daily Love LIVE in NYC with Marianne Williamson and Gabrielle Bernstein.
I’m not saying this to brag, I’m saying this because as cool as it seems on the outside – there is still a big part of me that believes that I’m not enough, I should quit and that there’s no point or hope to trying.
I’m not sure when that voice will go away, or if that voice does go away. But I can tell you that I thought it would be gone by now. But what’s interesting is that it seems to get louder and louder as things pick up.
It’s almost like the bigger and more outside your comfort zone you get, the more that voice tries to protect you.
But what I’ve come to realize is that unless I’m in mortal danger, protection is actually soul suffocation.
So, today – even though I don’t feel like I’m fully enough or worthy, I’m taking one more step outside my comfort zone, knowing that I won’t die and that you probably won’t hate me for doing so.
