Recently, in one of my coaching sessions, I asked this question…
“What emotions do you experience when you consider approaching new people for business or friendship?”
They said, “I experience embarrassment”. I was about to say something when I heard the Whispers of my Soul hushing me to listen. I was led to look up ‘Embarrassment’ in the dictionary. We both got close to the computer and looked as the screen loaded the word Embarrassment.
–verb (used with object)
- 1.to cause confusion and shame to; make uncomfortably self-conscious; disconcert;
Many of us have thought it was cute when we see a child who is shy and embarrassed. Knowing the definition of embarrassment has certainly changed my views on this, as it did the one I was with. Shame and confusion are not positive life valuing attributes. No one need ever feel this way! I sensed how it was changing both our views on this. I am always amazed at how questions can change the world!
My last article delivered a powerful message about our stance in life, which I referred to it as “The Warrior of Life” Our stance as a warrior bears a striking resemblance to our men in a combat zone. Alert and protective. Our mind is part of the territory we protect. Our inner dialogue is an important part of us. If we are feeding it corrupt and negative thoughts, it is going to produce those fruits in our lives.
How could it change your life if you implemented the attribute of positive thoughts in your life, developing a thought pattern that would value you?
Thoughts are one of the biggest area’s we all deal with and it’s imperative to know that when we’re learning something new, feeling frustration, falling down and even feeling unbalanced is part of a life of change. I know that sometimes life get’s hard and it feels like we don’t have the strength to keep going, to pick up and start again, but we do. If we do not get up, we’re going to stay down and that’s not really where any of us want to be. Do not cast your will and strength aside, instead pull it close to you and treasure it. To believe we don’t have the strength and will power to get up again is a lie! We do! We have the strength and the power to achieve anything we put our mind and will too. We have the will power to keep going and to try again. We have the ability to win in this life. I am not a quitter and neither are YOU!
Nick Vujicic is an amazing man, has accomplished amazing things and has a powerful message of perseverance.
If anyone could’ve let life get him down, it could’ve been Nick. He learned the importance of keeping a positive inner dialogue and he is a great “Warrior of Life”!
Claim victory for yourself! Don’t let anyone tell you, you can’t! If you keep persevering, it won’t be long before you find yourself dancing through the storms of life with a smile on your face and others asking you, where do you get your joy from!!
