Are You Settling for Good Enough?

Sometimes change can seem so daunting that you take the easy route and stick to the status quo in your life.

“Oh, it’s good enough,” you’ll say.

Or: “It’s not the best, but hey, it could be worse.”

Each of us probably has one or two or ten things in our lives that are “just OK.”

Even though you KNOW it could be so much better.

You even daydream about all the possibilities…until the lizard brain (your inner critic) shows up to rain on your parade.

The lizard brain asks questions like:

Who are you to want something more?

Why do you have such high standards?

Why can’t you just be happy with what you have?

But the lizard brain never asks the important questions that need to be answered as you move forward in your journey, such as:

How are you limiting yourself by pretending to be happy with your life as it is?

What circumstances have you settled for despite a persistent feeling that you were meant for so much more? 

What are you missing out on by staying in a dead-end job?

What truly amazing relationship are you keeping yourself from by settling for one that’s just “good enough?”

Confronting these kinds of questions could be the first step to becoming the woman you know you were created to be.

Because when you give yourself permission to admit what you REALLYwant…

You might find that the reason why you’ve been settling for “good enough” is because deep down, you’re afraid that maybe you WON’T end up getting what you want – even if you try.

Maybe you’re not worth it.

Maybe you don’t deserve it.

Maybe it’s too late.

But don’t you see…that’s not the truth!

That’s just the lizard brain talking.

At any time, you can decide to press the “reset” button and start over.

Your life, your business, your relationships, your career, your health – all of it could be totally transformed once you make a DECISION that success is possible for you.

You don’t have to settle for “good enough.”

You don’t have to blindly accept that this is how your life has to be.

Instead, you can choose to walk in your purpose and manifest the big vision you have been given for your life.

All you have to do is DECIDE that from now on – starting today – things will be different.

Are you ready to do that?

Here’s what Patricia said about attending Manifest Your Vision:

“Just wanted to say that my life has completely soared since the Retreat. I think it allowed me to focus inwardly in order for me to be more productive and present in my business and personal life.

Before the retreat I was in a lot of indecision, overwhelmed and just battling some things. I now meditate daily, expanded my vision board and increased my services.

I’m even down 10 lbs and my diabetes has improved. The only downside is that my clients seemed to have tripled this year keeping me EXTREMELY busy so I’m learning balance. Just want to encourage everyone to stick with your goals. Take it one day at a time, you’re so worth it!” – Patricia G.
