Stop Waiting to Feel Worthy2 comments
“I don’t feel like I deserve it.”
“I’m struggling with my worth.”
“I’m uncomfortable feeling happy if I don’t have pain to justify it.”
“Sometimes I don’t feel worthy of a great life when so many others struggle.”
I hear statements like this in 90% of my coaching calls from incredibly talented, heart-centered women who I KNOW are meant to do great things in the world.
These soul-sucking thoughts literally keep them stuck.
They have great ideas, but struggle to do anything about them.
They set great intentions to change, but can’t get past the intention.
Another year of telling the same story; another unrealized dream is leaving them frustrated and ready to give up.
Please know that:
You will never feel worthy.
You will never feel like you deserve all the great things that happen in your life.
You’re not supposed to.
You’ll probably always question your worth and wonder if you’re good enough.
We all do.
But here’s why you have to move anyway:
You have a responsibility to show up for the people who need your inspiration and example.
It’s selfish to …
- keep your gifts from the people that need them. We need to see you shine, doing what comes so naturally.
- be uncomfortable with being happy. We need to feel the nourishing energy that comes from your fulfillment.
- deprive yourself (or sabotage) your abundance. We need your generosity.
- accept less than great relationships. We need to see that great love is possible.
“Give, give, give – what is the point of having experience, knowledge, or talent if I don’t give it away? Of having stories if I don’t tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don’t share it?” – Isabel Allende (This I Believe)
There are young girls struggling with their self-esteem who need your example; animals that need your compassion; an earth that needs your kindness.
F*ck waiting on feeling worthy!
Find purpose and RISE:
What do I stand for?
Who needs my [art, song, book, organization skills, love, jewelry, workout class, mothering]?
How will I share my gifts now?
It doesn’t have to be epic.
You can simply share your gift of being a great listener, or thoughtful gift giver.
Don’t wait to feel worthy because you’ll be waiting forever.
Don’t wonder if you deserve it. Chances are, you don’t.
None of us deserve anything.
But we embrace life’s gifts because they allow us to show up and step into how we’re meant to use our life for something greater.
“The Soul of the World is nourished by people’s happiness.” – The Alchemist
In the comments, tell me what you stand for and why you refuse to wait to feel worthy.
