Divine Dissatisfaction

Recently we looked at how a moment can lead to a breakthrough.  Let’s look at another one:

It is the second you realize that you have been playing small.  You know that you have a gift and you haven’t been utilizing it to anything near its true potential.  You have a yearning to do more, have more and become more. Reverend Eric Butterworth used to call this type of feeling “Divine Dissatisfaction,” because he believed you were answering a calling from your Creator.

It doesn’t matter what your religious beliefs are:  When you decide to step up and play big, you are returning to your true nature.  Resistance declines, momentum builds.  People who want to hold you back fall away, and you attract others who want to go forward with you.   Now things really get fun.  But there is one more obstacle…

You.

Or more specifically.  Your self-sabotage tendencies.  Because the awareness of your ability to play bigger is predicated on the realization that you’ve been playing small.  So it’s easy to beat yourself up over that.  Buy into all the old worthiness issues and self-doubt that tears you down.

Remember this:  you’re human.  And making mistakes and developing awareness and consciousness is all part of the course curriculum.  So do the most important thing:

Forgive yourself.

Which of course is the hardest person to forgive.  But that’s just the worthiness insanity trying to recreate itself.  Give yourself forgiveness because you really are worthy of it.  We all are.

Then go out and do something epic!

I have really tried to redefine "failure" for myself as a way of forgiving.  Instead of looking at a "failure" as something I did wrong or fell short at, I instead have been trying to ask myself "why?" What I am finding is I learn a thing or two about myself doing that.  Instead of trying to bolster a perceived shortcoming, I find something positive I can leverage.

Well this one definitely deserves a BOOM!! 

 

If we made up a list of all the excuses we have to NOT play it big, we'd probably run out of paper.. But in the end its really what we BELIEVE that moves us forward.. and there's the hitch.. At least in my mind. I find that when things don't flow I question whether I REALLY and TRULY believe.. And to me, this is tied directly with forgiving ourselves as you say.. Thanks for the GREAT reminder Randy.. You rock!
