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…
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:
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!
