What happened on page 111 of The Big Leap 05/18/2011
Last night I was digging into page 111 of The Big Leap & something big struck home with me.
Up until this point nothing in the book deeply resonated with me.
Although everything I read was relevant - I just felt like I had worked through a lot of the references.
& then I read page 111. It starts off like this...
" Make a commitment to keep an attitude of wonder and play while learning about your Upper Limit behaviors. Say this sentence in your mind as often as you like. It expresses the attitude I’d like you to embody.
I commit to discovering my Upper Limit behaviors, and to having a good time while I learn about them.
Here are some of the most common Upper Limit behaviors (I won’t list them all, but the two that jumped off the page & strangled me were):
I totally have a self-sabotaging Upper Limit Problem.
& then the fear kicked in.
I just had a client hire me that morning for web design, paying me a significant amount of money.
What if I screw it up?
What if my Upper Limit Problem kicks in & she wants to fire me?
What if I’m not as good as I think I am?
Blah, blah, blah.
I even had bad dreams last night that circled around these fears of not being good enough to be wealthy.
To be completely honest, I haven’t entirely discarded these fears.
But I am present to them.
I am waving hello to them when they show up.
I am choosing to put my energy into this : “I commit to discovering my Upper Limit behaviors, and to having a good time while I learn about them."
Instead of that: “I’m not good enough.”
