By becoming authentic. WHAT'S STOPPING THAT?
Ask yourself, what did you have to do to be loved, as a child? Most kids are not encouraged to believe in their uniqueness. If you had to behave like someone other than yourself, then you stopped being your authentic self. And, what is authenticity? Sharing your passion with others and making your soul visible to the world.
Below is a list of common traits that prevent you from living your life and fulfilling your destiny.
1) Being a People Pleaser.
Behaving or doing something you don't really want to do-in order to make someone else happy. People pleasers neglect their own needs and wants and inevitably become angry and frustrated. You're hoping the other person will validate you, but you just end up being resentful.
Start loving your Needs and Wants. The better you feel about yourself, the more you are willing to invest in yourself. If you don't invest in yourself, nobody else will.
2) Living in the Past or Future.
If you're sad, you're living in the past. If you're worrying, you're living in the future. This way of living will totally disconnect you from your power and discovering your authenticity.
We all live in the NOW! Only when you are in the moment, the present, will you be able to see the beauty that is all around you. When you live in the present, you can experience the love, joy and contentment you've been searching for. Remember, the present is a gift! That's why it's called "Present".
3) Having a Controlling Personality.
Controlling personalities live in fear and trust no one. Even though they want a better life. They are afraid of what tomorrow will bring. When you are not willing to surrender to the magic of the moment. YOU WILL FAIL! The world is trying to help you. Be open to the messengers that will be coming your way.
Surrender to Life! When you surrender, you're ready and available for life's opportunities. And then living a meaningful, adventurous and successful life is possible.
4) Interested in what others Think and Believe.
When you remain a child you feel that others always know more than you. You don't believe in your instincts. Your instincts are messages that are trying to help you. In life, there are moments where no one can tell you what to do. Your Instincts will lead your path.
It's time to trust Yourself!! Ask your own heart for advise. Seek words of wisdom only from those who have achieved what you desire. Never ask people, who are living their nightmare, to help you achieve your dream!
5) Resistance to Change.
Those who fear change, fear their destiny and their true self. You feel that change is too uncertain, too scary. You believe more in the past and have no faith in your future.
Take responsibility for your Life! If you don't allow yourself to change and grow, you are going to miss your LIFE. To become your authentic self, YOU WILL HAVE TO CHANGE! There is no other way. Life is Change and if you don't change you will be left behind.
6) Not having the Courage to Live Your Life.
No one is born with courage. Courage is a choice. It comes from the Latin word Coeur, meaning heart. To follow your dreams and know who you truly are, you must connect with your heart. To live the life you were born to live, you must have courage.
It's time to take big Risks! There are no safe roads in life, and no place called "Security". Be brave and live the life that's right for your Authentic Self!.
