This quote has been floating around my head this week. It often does when I know I'm ready to action something new that I've been wanting to do but where it's just fear and a lack of confidence in myself that is holding me back. It is the phrase that builds the energy and positivity in me to get me on and doing it.
A client of mine (who is happy for me to share this with you) came in yesterday and was in a similar space. She has been wanting to move forward with a few things but wasn't sure if her previously frozen shoulder was ready or not and feared that she might set herself back or dent her growing confidence with it. She had been watching some of the holocaust documentaries on last week and her mantra struck her loud and clear 'one life, live it well'. She got herself to the swimming pool and discovered that far from being an issue her shoulder actually flourished from the swim and her confidence got more than just a wee boost!
So whether you have your own internal quote, or you wish to borrow either of ours, ask yourself what you might be holding yourself back from due to fear of moving forward.
Because, if NOT now, then when?
