Stop To Limit Yourself. Choose FREEDOM.
Freedom. Just one word what comes into mind – freedom if I start to think about what is the most important factor for each of us we need the most. To become free of fears, free of anxiety, free of trying to compare ourselves to others, free of trying to please anybody else and that list could be endless..
And I’m talking about this inner sense of freedom all of us already have. But sometimes we forgot that we are free to make any decisions in our lives which are important to us. And unconsciously start to limit ourselves, making different (and often pointless) restrictions for us and not allowing to experience to ourselves what we need the most at the certain life moment.
Why is it so important to get rid of all these limiting beliefs about ourselves?
As far as we are keeping and carrying them in ourselves daily – that’s the only reason we can’t live our dreams. Nobody outside of us can take these restrictions from ourselves.
“I can’t do (can’t go etc.) something because …..”
It is very limiting belief. If we are keeping to tell ourselves that we can’t - we will not be able to find possibilities for “we CAN”. As we will be focused on that negative side. Focused on obstacles, not opportunities.
Reasons for us – choosing those limiting beliefs about ourselves - can be different. Maybe we have heard them about ourselves since our early childhood, or – we have made those assumptions based on our negative experience with something we have tried but couldn’t succeed and didn’t experienced positive outcome we were expecting to get.
We can stop to limit ourselves. It is our conscious choice! And as soon we realize that it could be possible that those beliefs we had previously – are quite far from reality – our inner strength increases. We start to see opportunities around us. We regain belief in ourselves. Our confidence boosts up.
Freedom is what we need. For each of us - our soul freedom. Freedom to love, free choices about everything in our lives.
And it is definitely not just that outer freedom. The focus is on our inner freedom we are experiencing, when we are allowing to ourselves to make those choices.
Although it is worth to be mentioned: if we have lived quite long time by blaming someone else for something we haven’t, it could be difficult to take the responsibility above our lives again.
Freedom IS responsibility. There is nobody who is responsible for decisions you make in your life. It is just your choice. And sometimes we get scared of this responsibility what comes together with those words "I am free". As we will not be able to blame anybody else if our choice will not lead to the results we were expecting for. But again - while we live with victim's mindset - where anybody else is responsible for what we have or haven't experienced - it will never allow us to be free. It is still the same self-made cage we will be living in. And just we can open those doors. To become truly free again.
You ARE free. You can do whatever you want. Nobody can keep you in limitations. Stop doing it to yourself.
Sense of inner freedom brings tremendous joy in our souls and hearts. When we allow to ourselves just to be free, taking all those stereotypes off. And stop doing this limiting programming to your subconsciousness that “we can’t do this because…”
“We CAN.” “You CAN.” “I CAN.”
Whatever you want to achieve in your life, you can achieve it. We can, if we allow ourselves to move toward what we need the most. By allowing to live our dreams, not by keeping us far away from them. That’s true. That is the choice. Choice we make by ourselves.
I AM FREE. And what about you? Are YOU? If not, will you choose it for yourself also?
