WHEN YOU HOLD BACK... YOU ARE LETTING ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HURT YOU AND DID NOT BELIEVE IN YOU WIN.... - Mandy Perry

Every single time you hold back on your dreams.. you participate in creating a kind of world where those who told you that you weren’t enough win.

Let me say this another way…

EVERY TIME YOU PLAY SMALL
EVERY TIME YOU DECIDE YOU DON’T DESERVE WHAT YOU WANT
EVERY TIME YOU HOLD BACK

You not only let them win… you PARTICIPATE in creating the kind of world where playing small is what’s expected.

Not only do you ABSOLUTELY deserve every single thing you desire in your heart & soul…. but when you choose to believe you don’t DESERVE IT, you are actually actively participating in creating an environment where others are expected to believe the same in order to be “good”.

This is not ok.
It’s not ok to play small.
It’s not a harmless act to believe you do not deserve it all.

I know this is blunt.. but it’s true.. and we need to hear it.

– Money is bad
– You have to choose.. luxury or peace of mind
– Freedom or be a good mom
– Be powerful or loving
– Fun or success

On and on the list of BS goes.

Let me ask you this… How does you suffering help anyone?
How does you thriving hurt people.

You cannot criticize your way to success.
Cannot shame your way to happy.
Cannot nag your man into loving you.

and you cannot play small your way to healing the world.
WE KNOW THIS..

So if we know it.. if it’s common sense… WHY are we still stuck looping these same loops over?

WHY IS IT SO DAMN HARD TO DO WHAT WE KNOW TO DO?

Why are we still stuck?
Why haven’t we broken through?
Why do we break our own commitments to ourselves?
Why is 62% of the population living paycheck to paycheck?

WHY?

Because most people feel like they are a bad person if they have everything they long for… they feel unworthy.

It’s really this simple.
I’d know. I was the broken, battered, and bruised welfare girl.

I felt unworthy of just about anything.

So how did I change it?
I let myself say YES to every single thing my soul says YES to.. and I said NO to everything my soul said no to, imperfectly and consistently.

I said YES to help. YES to investments. YES to my needs. YES to my longings.

My only question when I went to say yes was.. “Do I desire this?”

Even when I had NO idea how it would all work out… especially when I had no idea how it would work out.

Even when I was terrified.
Even when I felt “bad”.
Even when I felt selfish
Even when I felt unworthy
Even when I felt confused

I leapt and leapt until the EXPERIENCE on the other side became more familiar and my nervous system began to trust the process.

I said NO when soul said no… when body said no.

Even if they got mad
Even if they guilt tripped me.
Even if I looked bad.
Even if I was scared
Even when I was super uncomfortable.

And I said no until I stopped having panic attacks, until I healed 21 years of bulimia, until I stopped feeling resentful.

I said yes right into my dream life.
I said NO right into my dream experience of life.

>>>>> You don’t have to rewire every single thing that has ever hurt you and scared you to be successful… YOU ONLY HAVE TO FEEL WORTHY ENOUGH TO SAY THE FIRST YES & THE FIRST NO. <<<<<

This was ALWAYS about seeing the ONE step in front of you, and saying YES to whatever you are called to do for THAT step.

ONE YES.
ONE NO.
ONE LEAP.
ONE CELEBRATION.
AGAIN.

What is your soul calling you to do now?
What in you is trying to mature?
What is it going to take for you to feel worthy enough to truly leap?

love you
