Whatever the albatross around your neck… is it worth it?
Have you ever thought about what you would be willing to trade your things for? …Or say goodbye to that career you don’t like?
Would you trade them for happiness?
Would you trade them for freedom?
I often find, as I council people on living their dreams, that their “things” (and their fear of giving them up) are the main obstacle in achieving the life that would ‘make their heart sing.’ Their souls long for the dream and yet they are willing to give it up to hold onto the statis quo.
We all do this to a certain extent. But, think about it for a minute.
Didn’t you buy those “things” and pursue that career because you thought they would make you happy?
Are they actually making you happy or….. are they a barrier to happiness? Real happiness.
Are you loaded down in debt for things you would, if allowed to choose, sacrifice in a moment if you knew you could have that DREAM?
Choose the dream! Find a way to unburden your life of the “things” you now know were a substitute for the ‘real happiness.’
Think for a moment how it would feel to be rid of the burden; free to live the life of your dreams.
Be creative. Instead of saying “I can’t have the life I want”, ask a different question.
Ask, “How could I change my life so that I can live the one I really want?”
And magically, your life will change. Real happiness is there, on the horizon. You’ve only to see it with new eyes and a new perspective.
