Bella is a woman in her mid-30s who has dreamed of writing a book since she was a young girl. She has a fulfilling but very demanding job as an ER nurse. She’s also a wife and mom which doesn’t leave her much free time. But she’s beginning to feel a bit restless and keeps being drawn back to her childhood dream of writing a novel.
She’s started talking about working on her book but those around her just laugh and tell her it’s a nice dream but she’ll never be able to do it. They tell her things like “you don’t know how to write a book, you can’t take time away from your husband or kids to work on such a silly dream, you don’t have anything to write about, no one would read it anyway.”
And Bella starts listening to all their negative input and begins to believe they’re all right. So once again she pushes her dream aside, telling herself they’re right and she doesn’t have the time, knowledge or anything to write about that people would read anyway.
A Life You Love Is Waiting For You
Maybe you can relate to Bella’s struggle. You’ve wanted to write a book too – it’s been a lifelong dream but those around you don’t support it and you have those same negative, inner critical thoughts Bella had – they’re right, I don’t know how to write a book or I don’t have the time anyway.
- having the confidence you need to step into your full potential.
- owning your experience writing that book.
- meeting every obstacle head-on with plenty of confidence to spare.
Become Who You Were Meant to Be
You have the potential to accomplish all your goals. But you let self-limiting beliefs hold you back, so you keep playing small. You don’t publish that book because you think you don’t have enough experience. You don’t publish it because you don’t think anyone would want to read it anyway – the list goes on and on.
You keep listening to these lies, replaying them like a beloved song. You do this, not because you love being stuck, but because being stuck feels safer than going after what you really want.
Let me say that again:
Being stuck feels safer than going after what you really want!
Self-sabotage is the playground bully that keeps pushing you around and it’s time that you get angry. It’s time that you stop listening to his taunts and insults. It’s time that you take back your power and become the writer you were meant to be.
You can write a book that you adore, one that you pour your heart and soul into and feel confident in releasing to the world! But first you have to tackle the self-limiting beliefs that are holding you back. Don’t be afraid—your best life is waiting for you on the other side.
