When we try to fit into others ideas of who we are or meet expectations others set for us, we are really limiting ourselves and the level of abundance we can achieve for ourselves. It is NEVER right for us to go outside of what works for us just because someone else asked us to do something or recommended it for us as an option or because we were flat out told to do it.
Of course, there are exceptions to this rule and there are certainly times when we have to do things that are just not fun but are necessary. This is an unfortunate truth. The bottom line is if it doesn’t feel good to you, it isn’t right for you. Whether or not you do it, or have to do it, is another matter altogether.
When we go outside of ourselves, outside what is right for us, we are going against who we are and we cut off our access to the full level of abundance that we could be receiving. This might mean less money, but it could also mean fewer opportunities or even a lower quality of people in our lives. By aligning ourselves directly with WHO WE ARE NOT, we most certainly attract more of WHAT WE ARE NOT, which is lack, limitation, sadness, depression, anger and frustration. And the people that come into our lives will be a direct reflection of that.
This is why it’s SO important to know exactly WHO WE ARE and stand strong in that, no matter where we are or what we are doing. And even when we find ourselves in the position of having to do things we don’t want to do or that are truly not in alignment with who we are, we can still do them in our own way, so that it DOES align with ourselves in every way possible. This can be both a wonderful AND valuable learning experience for ourselves about standing strong in who we are and what we want for ourselves.
The more we do this, the more abundance we will see in our lives, plain and simple. We will be happier, mentally and emotionally stronger, more self-confident, and become more and more of a magnet that attracts good things to us.
