In your journey when you hit an obstacle, you do your best to figure it out: to go over it, under it, around it, through it. Most of the time you’re successful and you can go on your way.
Sometimes, though, the obstacle seems impenetrable—like it’s a wall of granite. You try all the techniques and tricks you know. They worked in the past, but they aren’t working now. You even tried thinking outside the box for new ways to overcome the challenge, but that doesn’t work either.
Now, you don’t know what to do, how to change the situation. You rail against fate and wonder “why me?” You claim you’ve done everything you can to change the situation. You insist that if others would change, things would be better for you.
But maybe it isn’t the situation and it isn’t other people. Perhaps it’s you that needs to change.
Your homework today is to earmark uninterrupted time where you can think deeply and quietly. Answer the question: what are you doing—or not doing—that is contributing to the problem; what do you need to change about yourself?
Do you need to be less controlling—or maybe you need to step up to the plate and be more decisive?
Are you too stubborn to ask for help—or are you asking for too many opinions and now you’re confused with all the conflicting advice?
Do you need to be more appreciative of people who are being supportive of you—or are you too nice and being too careful to not hurt others’ feelings and in the process have you sacrificed your dreams?
Are you not putting in enough time and effort?
Do you need to dig deeper inside yourself?
Are you trying to achieve someone else’s dream?
Do you need to shore up your belief in yourself?
This is very important work; don’t skimp on it. Look inside yourself and determine what needs changing.
You can do this!
