The journey to success begins with nothing grander than a mindset change!
Why do I say so?
Escaping from prison is only the beginning of your journey to freedom. To make good your escape and succeed in creating the life of liberation that you desire, there’s an extensive amount of work to be done and you will need all the help and support you can get. First things first though: apprehend your ‘Why’!
Early in 2016, I apprehended my Why. This gave me the courage I needed to begin my escape journey from the prison that held me back from achieving my dreams. My prison was none other than the ‘mindset prison’. I first needed to identify (name and shame) my prison for any REAL CHANGE to happen in my life.
For years, that prison had held me in what felt like a vice-grip, but by understanding mindset, I came to realize the chains that held me bound for decades were mere (wait for it) paper chains! These were not chains of brass held together by a padlock, and infact, the power to escape lay within me all this while!
Today, I still marvel at the simple yet epiphanic miracle (I can’t help but think of it as a miracle). That mundane yet life-altering moment when I experienced a paradigm shift. I literarily experienced a sudden leap of understanding in my spirit! What an ordinary yet significant occurrence. I have since gone on to escape my prison, and I’m now on the journey to my palace.
My journey is not without its challenges, however by placing my mind on a ‘rinse-and-repeat auto-pilot’, I experience daily triumphs amidst the challenges, and the lessons learnt have been worth it. I can truly declare (in the words of an old poem I wrote many years ago) that ‘I am now master of my grouse, where once misery made my life its spouse!’’.
Life often casts us in so many roles, asking too much of us. It is all too easy to lose ourselves. If we stay there long enough, we soon forget those dreams and aspirations that gave us hope and excitement when we were much younger!
The challenges we face daily including holding down jobs and taking care of our families can become a major factor for overwhelm. So how can we find balance, hold on to our passion, fulfil our dreams and not give in to fear and depression? How do we go from sitting in limbo to living full-out, unapologetically?
