What we do can literally TRANSFORM someone's life... seriously!
Remember your words and actions have an impact.
They can either empower and inspire.
Or defeat and deplete.
Let people follow their dreams... help people follow their dreams!
Tell them all the reasons WHY it could and should happen, rather than your fears...
Shine the light on how amazing they are, if they can’t see it themselves... tell them so often they can’t help but start to believe it!
Most of us are the same.
We refuse to see the spark and the potential in ourselves, but we can see it so clearly in those surrounding us that we want to shake them. We get so frustrated and sad that we can’t seem to make them understand how wonderful they are.
How can we really guide or help?
Look in the mirror, my lovely friend!
If you want to convince someone that they’ve got what it takes to achieve their dreams, first… take a look at yourself.
I would bet that you’re far harder on yourself than you are on anyone around you. You make huge demands of yourself, neglect yourself, and beat yourself up when you don’t get things ‘right.’
Understanding this is an extremely important start to getting your head around why someone else might not believe in themselves, even when, to you, their potential is blindingly obvious.
Once you’ve ruminated, meditate... pondered that.
Wrap your head around this…
Live by example!
Do you have your own dreams? Do you ever prioritize yourself and your needs? It might be that what your loved one/ friend/ person lacks is a role model whose example they can live by.
Perhaps seeing someone else close to them believing in themselves and taking positive steps forward could be the thing that inspires them to do the same.
Just my thoughts for now…
Peace and hugs
