Feeling underserving of an extraordinary life. Stems from self doubt, lack of trust in my abilities and fear of failing. But i am slowly learning that i have to go after the things i want in life even if i might fail its all one steep learning curve
Because I look back and see how it has been so far.
I need to do something different, see my life differently. Or go on an adventure!
What is extraordinary, really? All of our lives have meaning, and if we can also find a purpose to our lives, it is even better. Just being alive is an extraordinary accomplishment!
I’m not looking for a life out of the ordinary. In the ordinary there is such great beauty. Why stress about pushing into something that is extraordinary?
Wonderful. I love this.
Thank you Anna.
WHAT KEEPS YOU FROM TRUSTING THAT AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE IS AVAILABLE TO YOU?
During my PERSONAL BREAKTHROUGH transformation, I have increased my trust & faith in my decisions in life. I was a person ALWAYS in her emotions and feeling like I had to prove my belief (secretly because I didn’t believe fully myself). Currently I have been blessed to be “reborn” in a way where LIFE’S PURPOSE has become so clear and AMAZING that I want to share it with EVERYONE to make life worthwhile for all of US. Before I would focus on ways that I DID NOT TRUST the Universe nor myself; which was fuel for my anxiety. I am so happy to say I am progressing and growing and tend to focus on the positive A LOT MORE.
NOW for “work”/ “healing and supporting” I install a “Cup ALWAYS half Full” mindset. ALL things (emotionally/mentally) associated with fear/neglect are to be CELEBRATED because these “RED FLAGS” are signals of being human and having awareness. Awareness is one of the steps for personal development, wellness, success & fulfillment.
Rather than dwell that you have recognized something bad I focus on the simple fact that there is AWARENESS and these are messages from our mind, body and soul telling us we KNOW and WANT BETTER !!! Keep going and keep growing there is always a blessing as a disguise. Open your mind, body and spirit to life start trusting The Creator/ God than increase personal trust and focus on what IS AVAILABLE for YOU in this extraordinary life.
I’ve always been the kind of person that dreams and visions the life I want to live in the future! Sometimes, I fear it loses it’s touch with reality, but I know that such a life is possible if I work for it. And then some days, I fear that I’m taking the life I have right now for granted. One thing I’ve done, despite wanting other things, is to be grateful for what I have now. It’s just a matter of reassurance for me. There is a fear of failure instilled in everyone, but I think if we trust ourselves and the process, we’ll be able to overcome it like any other challenge in life! I believe I will live that extraordinary life that I vision for me, I don’t know how, what or when, but I know I will.
At my age, I figure I’ve another 15-20 years to attain the extraordinary life. Perhaps I am already living it and just need to recognize and be grateful for it. When I lack this awareness it’s because I slip into fear of committing to the hard work I’ve been trained to accept as needed, rather than grace, for example. Fear of failure, which ultimately leads to fear of death, holds me back.
When I doubt that I am not special enough to have one, fear, not being worthy. Yet everyday is more extraordinary to me as I age. Just seeing a bee or looking at the big gorgeous moon in the night sky last night. Really just gaining wisdom with age that living is extraordinary on planet Earth. Sets one free of ego based fear.
What keeps you from trusting that an extraordinary life is available to you?
By how it has been to date.
What helps you trust that an extraordinary life is available to you?
By how it has been to date.
Allowing myself to be distracted by nonsense and not keeping focused on the priorities I have set for myself.
For a long time I almost did not know other than living up to imprinted set standards of expectation, with an arrogant entitlement of an assumed extraordinary life, similar to what has been mentioned by Matthew E. In this mindset, the other people and also me had good chance to land up in a role associated with judgment and other mechanisms where good or bad, better or worse, wrong or right, so polarity and duality were leading principles. Then I saw that beyond this, when really looking closely, underneath there was helplessness, difficulty to find orientation inside my own and not so much of some already formulated authentic contribution, which would come from my heart and not from my “doing” to create together how we could best live together in this world, led by the heart. Currently, it is work in progress to detect the residues, which belong to these old habits of mind and to transform all into a peaceful and joyful state ready to share with others in the best way possible. I am happy and deeply grateful to have the chance and so much support of many dear kindred hearts. This by now is on its way to change inner perspective and to open up inside to the deep joy to possibly living a life blossoming in humility, humbleness and gratefulness, being there and giving and sharing with an open heart..
I agree with many of the comments below. Not having enough self belief -for example, even when I found myself surprisingly an executive Head of 3 schools, I couldn’t believe it was right! The old imposter syndrome again! And I often feel that I am too small to live an extraordinary life and make a difference.
But when a question like this stops me and makes me think, I do feel that, as many people have said, actually my life is extraordinary every day, and I have so much to enjoy and be grateful for. That’s the beauty of this site – it does help you stop and take stock and sometimes challenge your thinking.
Every time I say “I can’t” — either to myself or out loud.
Negativity —- in all of its ugly forms.
Ideas and behavior pattern ingrained in me since childhood.
Fear- fear of failure, fear of not thinking I’m good enough, fear of success- plain old fear
