We often get complacent when things are going well. We forget our path, our purpose, our calling. Sometimes we need a wake-up call to remember who we are and what we are here to do. And yes, sometimes those wake-up calls look like we are walking into walls or falling to the ground.
Why do we do that? Why can't we just take inspired action without having pain or discomfort be the motivator? I don't answer that question in the video, but do you ever wonder why?
It might be enough just to look at our challenges and problems as wake-up calls and not a reason for our negative self-talk to kick into high gear.
This video was inspired by a poem I was introduced to last Saturday. The poem is by Rabbi Yael Levy from the Institute for Jewish Spirituality and I start the video with the poem. It was a great reminder about not getting discouraged because things aren't going our way and we encounter challenges - but maybe these struggles are messengers in disguise.
Janet works with women who struggle with putting everyone else first, settling, playing small, and not following their dreams. She helps them move beyond the negative voices in their head so they can unleash their purpose, unmask their brilliance, and uncover possibilities that they have been blind to.
