Clinging to old beliefs for fear of having nothing to hold on to will keep you stuck and unable to move forward. Once you are ready to let go of what you think you know and open yourself up to the unknown, your world will open up in ways that are currently unavailable to you. You cannot hold on to what you believe to be true and expect your world to change for it will not. How you experience your world is a direct reflection of the beliefs you hold within you. It cannot be any other way.
How can you expect to see when you refuse to open your eyes fully? You cannot. Let go of what you think you know and suspend all beliefs if only for a short while so you can see a glimpse of that which you are currently unaware. You can always return to your previous state if you so choose but we assure you that once you get a taste of what else is possible for you, you will not want to turn back.
Let go of your fear of the unknown and step forward with courage and trust that the road ahead, if followed with your heart, will never lead you astray.
An old belief I adopted as a child was that I wasn’t smart enough to ever go to university. This belief dictated my career choice to become an Early Childhood Educator since this would only require a college diploma and would fulfill my desire to work with children.
While working full time, I decided to take a university course, only for personal interest. I had NO intention at that time to work towards a university degree. As one thing led to another, I ended up enrolling in a university correspondence program that led me to quitting my job to finish my Bachelor of Arts Degree followed by a Teaching Degree. I continued with my studies part time as I worked full time as an elementary school teacher and received my Masters of Education Degree in 1991.
This never would have been possible if I wasn’t willing to put my fear of failure aside and suspend my belief that I wasn’t smart enough. I feel so grateful that as I continued to step out of my comfort zone and follow my heart, I’ve been led to experiencing a life that I never dreamed was possible for me.
If you’re holding on to a belief that’s stopping you from living a full and joyful life, I encourage you to imagine what your life could be like if you let this limiting belief go and then take one small step towards what you most desire to experience.
Are you ready to step into the realm of unlimited possibilities? If so, get ready for a magnificent ride!
