Day six: Priorities
I'm not sure if you heard 'Show me your friends and I'll tell you who you are' before?
The circle of people who we have around will impact our standards and results
OQP-only quality people
People who are full of energy, value, self-pride and worth. Those who are filled with the truth and have no issues speaking it. Go getters, hustlers, entrepreneurs and more
Its not possible to make it on your own, so seek out the quality over quantity
Insights during meditation: Your self-work is your responsibility. Your self-care, your self-esteem, your self-confidence and self-love all have something in common: self.
As a child, we rely on our caregivers for support, then as an adult it’s the right time to take leadership and ownership of our life. Yes, it can be so scary — terrifying in fact.
Perhaps you didn’t get the support you needed as a child, and didn’t get a very good template for how to “adult”. Perhaps you are still entangled with your parents in some ways and feel you aren’t really able to step out as an independent adult.
Perhaps you are traumatised from an unsafe upbringing and just getting through every day is a struggle.
I feel you.
I invite you to — despite everything — give yourself the permission to become the person you were born to be. To develop into your best self.
Honour where you came from, honour where you are, but most of all, honour your potential. Honour the great and unique everything that is within you that is just waiting to be unlocked and unleashed unto the world.
You have friends and family and teachers and partners and community for support — you absolutely must do — but your work will always be your work.
You can choose not to do it, and that’s ok. But if on some level, deep down, you feel you owe it to yourself to invest in yourself, listen to that. I believe you deserve that.
Accept that your parents have done their best raising you and have their own lives now. Your partner doesn’t exist to do everything for you — they aren’t your new “parent”, and neither are your friends. Your path isn’t someone else’s job to manage. No one needs to “save you”, because in doing that they will be “saving you living your life”, which means you don’t truly get it.
So, where does one start with “self-work”? Begin with the most powerful and simple practice: a clear intention. A loving commitment to your self-development and self-discovery. A desire to bloom. A conscious decision to stay open.
Don’t be surprised how quickly the Universe will bring you the books, the teachers, the posts and the people you need to support you. Ask and you shall receive. But do ask ♥️ All loveX
