Old programming tells me I shouldn’t be demanding.
I shouldn’t ask too much.
I shouldn’t make waves or cause inconvenience.
That it is more valiant to accept whatever I’m given.
That a good person is accommodating.
That a grateful person wouldn’t ask for more.
That a gracious person works with what they have.
This old programming gets confronted A LOT in my head.
I piss it off REGULARLY.
“How DARE you desire SO MUCH.”
“How DARE you want MORE.”
“How DARE you be so UNREALISTIC.”
“Who do you think you ARE to want so much?”
This is an old, burdensome block.
If you have goals, dreams, aspirations AND these scripts running in your head, you will lose EVERY time.
This is a hijacking. A sabotage. This is a voice from the good ol’ “Nice Girl” identity again.
YOU CANNOT SIMULTANEOUSLY PURSUE YOUR DREAMS AND TELL YOURSELF YOUR DESIRES ARE WRONG.
It’s time we get comfortable with our DESIRE. It’s time we get comfortable with wanting MORE. Wanting BETTER. Wanting the UNREASONABLE.
Because you will get EXACTLY what you are willing to settle for.
Your desires are not only good for you, they are good for EVERYONE. When you allow yourself to have your juiciest dreams and desires, you will also have achieved your greatest capacity to serve and inspire.
