give up good
Say No More!
Let’s get this straight, I KNOW already that you’re a successful woman! I’m pretty sure I know how you got there too.
You followed all the rules, you went to school, got a “good” job, you’re climbing the corporate ladder or maybe you decided to start your own business, you signed up for all the “right” courses, you joined all the “right” groups, and you followed all the advice, because that’s just who you are, or at least who you think you’re meant to be. You’ve succeeded in your relationships too, you’ve got a man that you love, friends that you see, you even like your family.
But… something’s missing. You’re not making as much money as you thought you would, you’re so busy that you don’t have as much time for your relationships, you’re so busy you don’t have enough time for YOU.
And things have been a bit stale with your man for awhile now, you don’t seem to talk the way you used to, there are more fights than there were before. As for your friendships, yes you’ve got great friends, you don’t seem to see them as much as you used to though. In fact you seem to communicate via text and Facebook more than you actually connect these days. Same with your family.
In short, you’re not having as much fun as you thought you would.
Still, life is good, your relationships are good, your job/business is good. It’s all good.
But…and this is just a thought, don’t you want more than good? Good is… well good is good, but we’re not here for good. Anyone can have good.
You want more. I know you do, because I do too. In fact I’m pretty sure if most of us were honest with ourselves we would all want more. We’re not here for “good”.
We’re here for great, we’re here for amazing, we’re here for breath-taking lives.
But for some reason we’ve talked ourselves into settling.
Settling for good. Settling for what looks like success to the outside world. Settling for what we have.
We’ve convinced ourselves that because we have so much more than so many others that we should be happy. We’ve been convinced that to want more is greedy. We’ve been told to be grateful for what we have, to not ask for more. We’ve been brainwashed into believing that there is a finite amount of love, of wealth and abundance, of happiness and so if we take more, want more than by definition that means someone else has to have less.
And I want to tell you right now that all of that is a GREAT BIG FAT LIE!!!
YOU being happy does not take away from my happiness, in fact being around you when you’ve vibrating at that level will more than likely make me happier. YOU getting what you want in your relationship with your man does not take away from me getting what I want from mine, in fact if you and your man are rocking it in the bedroom it will probably entice me to spice things up in my own bedroom - not in a competitive way, simply in a “I’ll have what she’s having way, thank you.” YOU making lots of money in your business or at work doesn’t mean there’s any less money for me. Even if we’re in the same line of work! I KNOW the people who need to hear our message need both of us, I KNOW our message is so much more important than us individually, just as I know there are certain people who will resonate with me, and those who don’t NEED to hear the message through you. YOU getting everything you want doesn’t mean that I can no longer get what I want, in fact maybe seeing you have it all is exactly the inspiration I need to know that it’s possible.
So, if you want more then go get more. If you’re ready to have it all, and have it all be easy then decide it, declare it and demand it of yourself. It’s up to YOU to get everything you want!
Until then I want to ask you a question,
If I was to wave my magic wand and grant you exactly what you wanted, what would you wish for?
