Amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s not only easy—but common—to get hung up on the small things. We get so caught up micromanaging our schedules and worrying about all of the facets of life that we’ll never have control over until we’re blue in the face and drowning in a toxic sea of stress.
Yet we seem to so easily forget that stress is an internal conversation that we create within ourselves. The truth is that we possess both the power and control to handle our stress productively. If we choose to do so, our stress can impact our lives in meaningful—rather than hindering—ways.
However, we often do not do this, and therefore find ourselves stuck. When this happens, where do we turn? Do we cope by adding another seven things to our to-do lists, or do we look within ourselves and channel the Spirit that has always existed within us? Our answer to this question can make all the difference. And, while some of us may be more spiritual than others, it is never too late to begin that journey to become one with the Spirit.
By living with a special consciousness of the Universe, we can begin to reclaim our lives. When we learn to stop and take a break from this crazy world for at least a few minutes each day in order to peer inside ourselves, we’ll learn to remain aware of a Higher Being and let that Spirit continually envelope our lives.
When we do so, we acknowledge that there is something out there much greater than us. We remember that we are not in this world alone, and that, ultimately, a bigger picture exists that is absolutely stunning. We’d be foolish not to take the time to admire its beauty on our own journeys.
How much happiness can we handle? Many of us have likely never sat down to think about this topic, although we ought to. Doing so may allow us to recognize a long history of self-sabotage that is present in our own lives.
Gay Hendricks references the “upper limit problem” in his book, “The Big Leap.” In short, he explains that there is only so much happiness, love, and success that we can handle until we sabotage it.
We’ve all been there at one point—we finally arrive at that ideal place in life that we have been dreaming of for as long as we can remember—we’re smiling, laughing, and enjoying life. We’re appreciating the little things and we’re soaking up the sunshine. But then, something snaps and we choose to knock down that tower that we’ve been working so hard to build. We’re not supposed to be this blissfully happy for good, right? Wrong.
We purposefully disrupt the harmony in our lives as we tell ourselves that we are essentially unworthy of being THIS great, or scare ourselves out of our greatness by running from the responsibilities that accompany our new position in life. When we take the time to think about it, this is a gravely destructive move to make, as we’re ultimately choosing to bring our lives to shambles. If we saw a friend behaving this destructively, we’d all have a talk with that person. It’s time that we have that same talk with ourselves.
Hendricks suggests that the “upper limit” issue is manifested through four hidden barriers. One of these roadblocks is “the crime of outshining.” This barrier ultimately censors us, urging us to stand in the corner instead of basking in the light of our own greatness. We are reluctant to outshine those around us—siblings, coworkers, friends, and so on—because something inside tells us it isn’t right.
While this is a fear that we can learn to overcome, we’ll never fully rid ourselves from it. Hendricks instead suggests simply acknowledging a nagging fear like this one and recognizing its presence, as being aware of it is the first step to making important changes.
To make that first move on the road to change, we need to put an end to our own self-sabotage by changing the way we think. Yet this is obviously not an easy project to tackle alone. Imagine having someone to work with who only encouraged our greatness. We can have just that by hiring a life coach.
Fully embrace the beautiful light you could bask in with some help from a life coach, and take that leap of faith today. The time is now, and the life you’ve always dreamed of awaits.
