Have you ever thought you felt “trapped” or “enslaved” in your life? You may have a fancy home or the car of your dreams, but yet, something is really missing in your life. If you feel that there is more to life than waking up, driving to work, working in a job that does not necessarily fulfill you, going home to spend time in front of the tube, you are not alone! Recently I heard on the radio that three out of four people do not like their bosses. That is a lot of unhappiness if you ask me. Let’s take charge of our lives and be accountable to us. It’s time to step into your “freedom”.
Step one, if you are miserable in your life or job, you may not be in alignment with your true purpose on this earth. Sometimes we must experience misery, being uncomfortable, and feeling unfulfilled to prompt us into positive action so we are living our true purpose. Check in with yourself. If you are not happy in your life, are you really doing the kind of work that you are passionate about and excited to do every day? Are you with the partner or mate that truly makes you happy and brings joy to your life? Life is sooooo long when you are unhappy. Take charge of your life! Work in a job that makes you fulfilled and be with the person who makes your soul feel complete.
Step two, is “fear” controlling your life? If fear is controlling your life, the fastest way to gain confidence is to tackle what you are afraid of because it will give you confidence. Seriously. I am talking about facing fear that is holding you back from being happier and more confident. Life coaching and hypnotherapy are excellent tools to identify why fear is “protecting” you, holding you back in life, and provides the means to overcome the “fear” in your life.
Step three, is insecurity or lack of confidence keeping you a “leader in hiding”? Anyone who has experienced life on life’s terms has probably been hurt by some experience. We all get lessons in life, but we must not let them define us in a way that keeps us small in life. We have to be accountable in our life. No excuses! Let go of the past, forgive the person who may have hurt you, take giant leaps of faith to become the person who can “overcome” the hardships that come up while living on this earth. We forgive others so we let go of the negative energy or chords we have with the person who harmed us.
Step four, are you taking good care of yourself? If you are eating poorly, watching too much TV, and making excuses why you can’t get a little exercise done, it’s time to really evaluate how you are treating your body. When you look in a mirror, are you your own best friend or worst enemy? Be mindful of all your actions in your life. Life is always about choices. Be smart. Eat right. Have fun, but treat your body right and it will reward you back. We have all heard the phrase, “You are what you eat”. There are tons of helpful advice on the internet. Reach out for help if you need it. You deserve it and others are counting on you to be in good shape.
Step five, if you are not in touch with your own intuition, it is high time that you connect with your intuition. We all have some form of intuition. Pay attention to the “signs” you get that confirm your intuition is right. There are great courses you can sign up for and get help with credible instructors that can help you get in touch with your own intuition. Being connected with your intuition is one of the greatest gifts we have and it can really help you make wise choices in your life. It can help you find empowerment and the freedom you desire in your life. So run, don’t walk…..and get in touch with your intuition. Life is all about choices. Make smart ones. We are all much more powerful and intuitive than we realize. That is mind-blowing, but the truth. When we make smart decisions, it sets us free to become the person we really want to be in our lifetime. Life is about choices. Empower yourself and set yourself free. Stop following the crowd. Be a maverick if you want. Freedom is a choice and you can have it too. We only have to “unlock” our potential and step into the life we all really deserve. That is what freedom is all about.
