What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love - Get out of your own way

Arrogance is a killer and wearing ambition on one's sleeve can have the
same effect. There is a fine line between arrogance and self-confidence.
Jack Welch

Sometimes, you are the one preventing yourself from moving forward and achieving your goals. Yea I said it! That's a tough one to hear right? Yea it's tough I know it, I've been told this and I resisted but now I'm a
believer.

Get out of your own way!

Stop denying your feelings, feel it, feel it all.

Get out of your own way!

Stop being defensive and acting like you know everything, you don't if you did you won't be here on this earth in this form at this very moment.

Get out of your own way!

Stop the lying to yourself and to others. What is the truth that you are
not telling to yourself?

Get out of your own way!

Deal with your pain and your issues in a healthy and productive way. Stop being one of the world's walking wounded.

Get out of your way!

Eat well and exercise.

Get out of your own way!

Stop numbing yourself with alcohol, drugs, and other mind numbing
substances because you prefer not to deal with reality, Face the truth and avoid pain.

Get out of your own way!

Stop trying to manipulate situations that you cannot control and control
people, and situations that are out of your control.

Get out of your own way!

Listen sometimes, rather than talk talk talk.

Get out of your own way!

Stop beating up on yourself for things you think you "should" be doing,
you "haven't done yet" or what people tell you that you ought to be doing.

Get out of your own way! Believe in yourself, stop second guessing your intuition, gift and abilities.

Get out of your own way!

Stop making excuses for people's bad behavior and lies, especially if you
don't want to be alone or feel you will not "find someone better" or even
more crazy "have no friends".

Get out of your own way! Stop settling for mediocrity and people in your lives who are not supposed to be in your life (you know very well what I am talking about).

Get out of your own way!

Pray and have faith.

Get out of your own way!

Stop hanging out with people whose season is over in your life and on your journey.You know the ones.

Get out of your own way!

Be authentic.

Get out of your own way!

Keep an open mind and know that you are always being guided, drop the ego tripping and decisions made from fear and ego for just a minute.

Get out of your own way!

You cannot fail, you just can't.

Peace!!
