Knowing your worth is one thing. Moving in your worth is a whole different kind of challenge, one that con only be mastered with ongoing practice, accountability and gentle love. I’m now noticing that although I’m aware of and clear about my worth in the business world, I don’t always act and move in accordance with what I’m saying I believe. I realized that there are times when I’m working my intentions in a half ass manner. I’m claiming that I’m making $XXX,XXX,XXX a month but I started to hear silent doubts in the back of my mind:
“Trust me, what you want is a secure job with benefits!”
“Yes some people are made to be business owners, but not everyone.”
The list goes on and on. What I finally realized is all the doubts our family and friends project on to us paired with the subliminal messages in our society have severely fogged our path back to our original divinity. Let’s flashback to 3 years ago:
I quit my job at LA County after working there for 7 years and I did that because I was convinced that there was something bigger and better for me in Colorado.
I made the conscious leap to go after that vision I was given. We wanted to buy a house when we got out to Colorado and we knew that we would be fighting an uphill battle working for ourselves and trying to get approved for a house so I shifted my focus getting a “secure” job. I made the presumptuous assumption that finding a job would be easy because of my long history with LA County, but the first 7 months in Colorado taught me patience and trust in Divine timing. The irritating lesson forced me to spend that time going inward and focusing on myself and unresolved healing I needed to address to clear my own path.
When I finally landed this job in Colorado, I put 200% into everything I did. I was grateful for the opportunity to work in a medical library since I love books and due to the nature of our business I knew that I would be surrounded by so much wisdom in these books. Situations and people changed within my workplace, as they do, and the changes were not in my favor. So lately I’ve caught myself saying things to myself like “I need this job until…” Those words are not in alignment with what I wanted my reality to be, it’s key that we recognize our own thoughts and behaviors that aren’t in alignment with what we want
So my message for those of you reading this is, make sure that your words, inner thoughts, and actions are aligned with what you really want. Only then can you move in your worth.
