Creating an extraordinary life is simple. It may not be easy, but it's simple. All we need to do is rethink a very regular conversation we have with ourselves and the people in our lives that goes a little something like this..."The job that makes me dread waking up in the morning is fine, the unhappy relationship I'm in is fine, the overwhelming debt I'm in is fine, my body is fine, I'm fine, everything is fine..." Sound familiar?
We cling to this four letter word, because if things are, "fine," we don't have to fix them. It's quite a clever strategy really. We get to opt out of chasing our dreams, taking risks, doing work and facing the reality that life should and could be better. Well you know what, beautiful? Enough is enough!
You deserve passion, excitement, confidence, dream-chasing, love affairs, and so much more! You deserve to jump out of bed every morning, eager to start living the life you love!
Here's how to create a life full of passion:
- When people ask what's going on in your life, be honest. If there is a place in your life that feels challenging, acknowledge it and then say something positive about how you are growing from it, how you plan to change it, or how it will pay off for you in the long run.
- Remove "fine" and "okay" from your vocabulary. It seems harmless to say these words to others, but if we vocalize something enough times, we begin to believe it's true. To quit the cycle of opting out of life, we must quit saying these words to others and most importantly to ourselves.
- Begin to believe that creating a life you love is possible. Everything is possible if you believe it's possible. Replace "fine" with "possible." It's possible to find a job you love, it's possible to cultivate a relationship that nurtures you, it's possible to love your body. The possibility begins by believing.
