Fear and doubt are sneaky. They’re forms of energy constantly attempting to capture your attention. The thing is, what we focus on is what we grow. So if you want to change your environment, your career, your relationship, your approach to abundance — if you’re looking to transcend your current circumstances and rise to the next level — here are a few tips to help you do so.
1. Practice radical belief.
Along this path of life, we often encounter challenges and hardships. We’re meant to experience contrast. Contrast helps us determine our preferences. Without it, we would be lost. But often, instead of using contrast as inspiration, we attach things to it. We make decisions because of our experiences and decide that we aren’t worthy of our dreams or that we aren’t capable of them.
This is absolute fiction. If we enhance our vibrational way of being to be in line with our dreams, anything is possible. Absolutely anything. Believe.
2. Make a sincere effort in everything you do.
Sometimes when we think of the scope of our dreams, they can be intimidating. We get so caught up in the size of the end result that we become paralyzed about what to do today. The trick lies in baby steps. Don’t let fear hold you back. Don’t fall prey to procrastination or being too scattered to be productive.
A great rule of thumb is to ask for help from someone when you feel truly stuck. Reach out for inspiration. Do a Google search. Scour this amazing website (MBG) or listen to Hay House radio. You never know where your next spark might lurk. But you have to try to find it. Try, fear of failure be damned.
3. Be true to yourself.
Take time every day to fine tune the intentions behind your dreams. Stay true to them. If you cultivate your intentions with joy and ease, you will easily fall back on them in those moments when fear and doubt knock on your spiritual door. Lean in to the joy of pure intentions. They are the guideposts to meaningful, lasting and powerful change.
4. Listen to internal guidance, and make some quiet time so you can hear it.
You have an internal guidance system in the form of your emotions. With a daily practice of meditation, you will feel these emotions with clarity. Those emotions help us to determine if we are on the right track or not. If something feels wrong, negative, dark, we need to readjust our words, thoughts or actions. If something feels right, good, light, fulfilling, we are on the right path.
It sounds simple but the noise inside sometimes will prevent us from embracing this with simplicity. That’s where meditation comes in.
5. Take risks to be truly free.
Risks can be frightening and exhilarating at the same time. They show that we are in tune with the natural flow of life and source energy. Take risks to be a part of the free flowing universal life energy all around you all the time.
Above all else, enjoy the journey!
