Making peace with your past, making peace with yourself cannot be under-estimated.
When you look into the mirror, do you like what you see?
A self-aware person knows themselves. They’ve taken time to examine their lives, to release emotional baggage, to check their beliefs to see if there are any negative or self limiting beliefs holding them back and to do any necessary fine-tuning to help them get to the next stage of their lives.
A self-aware person makes good decisions to move on, to release and let go, so that they can step confidently into the future of their own choosing instead of being stuck or trapped in the past of `same old, same old’…
Sometimes it helps to have another person to coach them and to hold them accountable to their new goals. They may get help to release and let go of emotional baggage. Also, it can be easier to `unload’ to a stranger who knows nothing about you and who can be objective. Having someone to listen to you and support you through each stage of the recovery process is something which you need to experience for yourself to understand how invaluable it is.
During Jack Canfield’s Breakthrough To Success program which I attended in August 2013 in Tucson, Arizona, he gave us `homework’ to do everyday of the 5-day event. One of which was to `talk’ to ourselves in the mirror. Some people actually found it incredibly hard to do, as they have lost touch with themselves, found it hard to even look at their reflection in the mirror and to look at the eyes staring back at them.
Please contact me if you would like to make peace with your past, with yourself.
A self-aware person is really the master of yourself! It’s incredibly powerful! Please give yourself the gift of your own personal power.
Stop hiding from yourself and the incredible contribution that you are to the world!
