Wrapping up my ABUNDANCE Bootcamp Challenge I find myself in awe of the courage and confidence that had to thrust forward from group members to crack open the FLOW of ABUNDANCE for themselves.
I shared the importance of understanding TRUE and ONGOING SELF AWARENESS so that you can refine and define your life moving forward.
This is a must so that you can continue to WIDEN the FLOW of ABUNDANCE. What you think, say, and do (aware or not) is your communication to the Universe. Your internal and external dialogue is what sends the signals to the Universe and then She responds to you.
Suffice it to say, if you're constantly waffling and changing your mind because of outside influences, then you can't be surprised when the Universe responds accordingly. She supports you as you are. No exceptions.
After identifying personality traits that suffocate ABUNDANCE, then you can focus more on what works versus forcing false ideas that don't.
It's my personal experience that personality traits that support FLOW of Abundance can be taught and learned...and most important...PRACTICED.
Living an abundant life requires confidence in your self. It's you living with purpose and meaning. This is not for the lighthearted. It's not a hobby. And, it's most certainly not "when you have time." It simply IS a lifestyle lived unapologetically.
When you embrace your commitment to living this way, your confidence continuously increases. This confidence flows into your decisions about your finances, your relationships, your emotional strength, and even your physical appearance. Confidence allows for more growth in every area of life.
Confidence begins the moment you see something is not working for you and then making different decisions for yourself moving forward. When you DO something different, you GET different results. It requires letting go of the outcome of your decisions because you are learning every step of the way.
For many, FEAR holds people back from making different decisions because they get caught up on the outcome. When fear sets in so do the habits and routines that numb your brain and stagnate your energy. Are you watching hours of television? Do you spend hours scrolling through social media? Pay attention, read this paragraph again... and then keep reading.
Powerful people are both STUDENTS and TEACHERS. They actively place themselves where they can learn. The mark of any master is the ability to learn from anyone (including their own students). No exceptions.
Making different choices and decisions for yourself doesn't have to start big, it simply means to start and let confidence in. From there, confidence feeds itself and life begins a crescendo effect leading to more joy, freedom—and true ABUNDANT LIVING!!
With confidence comes CLARITY. This is the 20,000 to 50,000 view that keeps the big picture and vision in mind. With your ability to see things as they are, you can respond to life, too. Living life with confidence by your side, will shake things up in your life...and that means others won't like it.
I've learned to be instantly grateful when people show up as they are. Again... when you know better, you can DO better moving forward.
It's been my experience that the circle of people I love are not necessarily the same people in my corner. Not everyone has to understand nor accept your journey and desire for an abundant and thriving lifestyle. Even if you want it for them, too...if they aren't seeing and embracing life the way you have, they just won't get it.
Clarity allows you to make better decisions about what to share with others...
Clarity allows you to make better decisions about how much time to invest in others...
Allowing yourself to be drained, held back, and live small for the sake of another's comfort is one the biggest energy squashers I know. Instead of building energetic flow and momentum toward what you want, you eventually find yourself spiraling out of control.
When you know better about the people around you, you can make clear and concise decisions moving forward. Don't worry... not everyone has to be in line to be cut off and out of your life. And...not everyone requires strong boundary lines, either. Sometimes it's a simple case of not sharing the things that you already know they want to squash. Instead, limit your time with those who drain you and then when you are with them, limit the conversation to the things you know won't disintegrate what you want to build. Keep it simple. Keep it joyful. Lead with love.
Indeed... both 1 and 2 above lead to your high-quality communication. This is MASSIVE in every way when it comes to your ability to create an ABUNDANT life.
Your communication is both spoken and unspoken. Your communication is in your habits and routines. Your communication is how you lead your life in every way!
You communication expands your energy (or it doesn't). The more you expand your communication in every way then your confidence and clarity expand, too... and THIS IS WHAT THE UNIVERSE responds to.
What are you putting out there?
Is it honest and heart-centered without a weakness that's constantly needing to please others?
Is it authentically yours or is it something you want others to believe?
How do you communicate after mistakes?
Do you run away from mistakes and hope no one notices?
Do practice avoidance after mistakes?
Or... do you look at them as opportunities for you to show up with integrity?
Steven Aitchison has a great quote, "Honesty is something most people can't handle" and I have found this to be SO SPOT ON.
When you communicate clearly, then your energy and vibration is vibrant and high (the UNIVERSE supports it swiftly). This is how you work WITH the Universe and this is how magic and opportunity arrive at your door.
Clear communication is you living honestly, unapologetically, and authentically... and not everyone has the confidence to do this nor do they have the confidence to be around it, either.
If you can't do this... remember you have the power to change this. Starting doesn't mean taking big steps, it just means giving yourself a chance to experience something different.
Place yourself in the areas where you know you can learn and grow. You may not be a master right away, but you can certainly practice the same habits the masters do.
Since starting this journey of abundance, I switched from temporary short-term wins to implicitly trusting the Universe and trusting the process because I also trust and love myself to practice the art of CONFIDENCE, CLARITY, and COMMUNICATION...consistently.
