What do you “deserve”?

What do you “deserve”?

Today’s topic is something that holds a lot of people back, especially creatives, and its about the need to raise our standards for what we think we “deserve”. If you have thoughts or reactions that keep you from the things you aspire to, its likely because you don’t think you deserve the outcome deep down.

Our brains manufacture reasons why we don’t deserve to attract the things we want. They tell us we need more training, we need to lose weight, we aren’t attractive enough, there are people better than us, etc. 

We can always find people who are seemingly better looking, more successful, more credentialed, and the like. Does that mean we are less worthy to attract the things we want? I don’t think so.

What it does mean is that we’ve given ourselves justification for not deserving it…and, subsequently, not going for it. Like last week’s theme about not feeling good enough, our brain serves up these road blocks to keep us right where we are, safe and sound.

Additionally, parents, partners, bosses and other people can reinforce these beliefs because of their own insecurities, whether they knowingly do it or not. Regardless, as adults now, its time to decide on the standards to enforce in our lives. I invite you to raise them from wherever they are right now.

It’s NEVER a bad thing to RAISE YOUR STANDARDS. Quote me on that! 

I believe we deserve to attract the things we want simply because we exist and want them. We can help ourselves manifest our desires when we uphold high standards with ourselves and others; take proactive steps towards meeting our goals; and strive to be the best versions of ourselves. 

In what areas do you think you can raise your standards? What would it take to commit to it and start upholding them? How will it help you meet your goals? What are the costs if you don’t do it?

We don’t always know how powerful we are, and how much our moods and emotional states can affect others. Imagine being in a pretty good mood and then encountering a friend who is really angry about something. As they are ranting and raving about what they are angry about, what is happening in your body? Do you think their anger,

Are You a Sponge or a Bubble?

As we encounter people throughout the day, we have a choice about how their energy affects us. We can either absorb it like a sponge or let it bounce off of our protective energy bubble. If we’re too permissive with letting people’s negative energy in, we can start to feel our own outlook get more negative. It may also show up
