Post #71. Are We Digging For Gold With Our Pockets Full of It?

We all want different things…

We want to be entrepreneurs, authors, athletes, doctors, businessmen and a lot of other things…

But it’s really essential to ask deeper questions to define what you’re really looking for in that thing, goal, achievement, title, circumstance…

And you might just see that “that thing” can be found in many places, or is just a little choice away from you right now. 

This is what a coach did for me a few weeks ago… It was so uncomfortable that it nearly brought me to tears, but it was sure a moment of growth.

So, when I told him about my goals, to serve & grow in different ways, he answered me with a “Why?” Why did I want this?

This was highly uncomfortable… I thought it was obvious… It surely got me thinking…

Why did I actually want this thing…?  

But the thing was… he continued asking this question that forced me to think deeply about it & along the way become more vulnerable about my “deeper desires”…
He continued: “Why?” and “Why does this matter to you?”, we went deeper and deeper…

A sense of wholeness…

That’s what it all came down to…

A sense of wholeness… 

He encouraged me to consider this “core motivation” for reaching my goal and then he told me bluntly that: “This is all ok to strive for Daniel but let me explain to you… You already got this right now.”

He meant that this belief I had that I somehow was not “whole” or “at peace” without having achieved the goal, would hinder me from ever feeling it… Because there’s always a new horizon… It was all in my mind… It was just a choice away from me…

I was digging for gold with my pockets full of it…

And I think many of us are…

And this… this phenomena… of believing that were lacking something essential in our lives… I believe hinders many of us from truly living a rich life…

So, we try to fill this void with stuff, gadgets, clothes, titles, status, money, stimulation… anything that makes us feel a little bit better in the moment… This hunt to fill “the void” can be harmful in many ways…

What to do?

Recognise that you are already whole, complete, amazing… Let yourself really feel this truth and you’ll see, it’s there and it has been all the time…
Everything that points in the other direction is just low thoughts trying to lie to you about who you are…

***

No matter what you’ve gone through in life… or what you think about yourself… 

Please know that this does not have to define who you are anymore… 

You can leave this place of scarcity and lack… and move into a place of pristine abundance and flourishing… 

And the very thing that has been holding you back, eventually, can be used as your most powerful tool to connect, with deeper empathy and understanding… Because you’ve been there… You’ve felt what they are feeling… 

Take care!

With love!
