Get out of your bubble

😡Are YOU pressing repeat and living and behaving as you did in the past?
 
😡Do YOU find yourself repeating behaviours that no longer serve you?
 
😡Do YOU hold yourself in limiting beliefs that stifle you?
 
It’s a coping mechanism isn’t it? You feel safe there if you carry on as you always have done. No one else can hurt you or tell you’re not enough because you’ve told yourself so many times that to you, it’s real life, the truth, the norm, the way of life.
 
If you dare step out this comfort zone, it feels strange, like you shouldn’t be allowed to feel differently
 
✨WELL LISTEN UP!!! ✨
 
Get out of your bubble, stop feeling sorry for yourself that things aren’t working and go stand in front of a mirror. No really, go stand in front of a mirror.
 
👀 What do you see? 👀 
 
The only thing stopping you from moving forwards is YOU.

⌚️ So here’s the thing… that was yesterday’s last week, last month and last year and if you look at your watch the time is now!
 
❓So what do you need to do to press play and live your life in the present?⁉️

I mean just imagine if you CHOSE not to do anything. How would that work for you? That feeling of sluggishness, emptyiness even where there’s no drive to get up in the morning, get out into the world or even be heard. Because that’s how it feels doesn’t it? Your voice doesn’t exist, no one notices you, at the core of it — there’s a lack of self worth and you might even find yourself saying you’re not enough. 
 
Or perhaps you don’t care? Perhaps you like staying like this because then you don’t have to do anything. After all everyone else is so much better than you so what’s the point in trying anyway?
 
STOP! What’s the truth here? Do you really want to stay feeling like this? Really???
 
💛Go on get on it — stop self sabotaging and start self expanding

I recently stumbled upon seen this quote and wanted to share. It touched me:
 
 “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Steve Jobs
 
 So how do you get started with bursting the bubble? 
 
 Here’s some simple steps you can take to get started:
 
1) Do the Doable — Look at your watch — the time is now!
Identify what you need to do and make a plan. Remember Rome wasn’t built in a day so be realistic about what you can achieved. You may find it useful to separate your tasks into different sections;

a) Urgent and important

b) Urgent — not important

c) Important — not urgent

d) Not important — not urgent

Separating the tasks out mean you are not looking at one overall potentially demanding list. Breaking it down itself can help it seem more manageable.
 The myth around multitasking is just that — a myth! When we multitasks we are actually just very quickly switching tasks and trying to focus on them all which can be very draining. You are much more likely to be more productive and sharp by focusing on one task at a time. You will also feel much better for getting something completed.

2) Control the controllable
 Are you letting your thoughts runaway with you?Thoughts aren’t facts. Take a few moments to assess the situation you are facing from a place of truth. It can be very easy to let our imagine take over and become ‘tragedy masters’ where we imagine the worst. With a brain that is five times more likely to consider negative thoughts than positive its’ important to ask yourself what is really going on here?
What would it be like to take a moment and look at what is going on from a different perspective?

3) 👭Ask for help
Asking for help, for many, is seen as a weakness. Actually in reality it shows that you are aware of what is going on for you and are taking action. Take a moment today and consider who could help you with something that you’re finding difficult right now? It might well be that the person you reach out to is an expert in that particular area.

4) 🙏Gratitude attitude
Remember to celebrate what you do achieve and play to your strengths. When we feel stressed it’s very easy to feel negative and be down on yourselves. Before you go to bed each night, spend a few moments creating a ta-dah list and celebrate what you have achieved that day. With over 60,000 thoughts a day the more we can channel positivity — the more it will become a way of life. You’re much more likely to sleep better if you go to bed on a positive thought.

Like some help with getting started and taking that first step?
