In the way!

I did something out of my norm and joined one of my silent mentor 'a (Lewis Hows) challenges. I used Mel Robbins' 5 Second Rule  theory before I talked myself out of it, realizing that it would be a little difficult. My challenge today was to post a picture of what is holding me back from my greatness. I have thought about this for a LONG time. What stands in my way of greatness, is me. Do you too get in your own way?

Practice what you teach!

I teach my clients that in order to move forward we have to get extremely real with what is holding us back. Sometimes there are a lot of tears, unspoken fears and slight panic attacks as we admit where weaknesses are.

I've been blessed to learn that my weaknesses are given to me so that I take time to learn how to make them strengths. I have turned some pretty big weaknesses into strengths and yet there are still some I am trying to overcome.

I have {and even still} struggled with true self-acceptance. I found this image several months ago and it speaks volumes about what I'm working on right now. I am learning how to let my spirit and my body become friends and to work together instead of against each other. I want to love me and my body exactly as/where I am in my journey. I want to be friends with myself to be able to get out of the way and to have my spirit/soul and my body be friends and to work together. 

I'll be honest, this picture has made me cry several times. Perhaps you can relate to this as well. You are not alone, let me assure you.

It has been a process and I am blessed to have great friends, mentors, coaches, and angels in my corner helping me to become a better version of me! 🙂

I am in love with this quote from Nayyirah Waheed. "And I said to body softly, 'I want to be your friend.' It took a long breath and said, 'I have been waiting my whole life for this."

Are you ready to face your weaknesses to learn how turn them to strengths?  If so, send me a message and let's get started! Thank you Lewis Howes for helping me dig deeper to transform stronger!
