Getting out of my own way

footloose annie

A few months ago, a friend shared with me some advice she had gotten from her mentor.

“You can do what you want. You just need to get out of your own way.”

That comment really struck a chord with me. There were things I wanted to do, but there were barriers in front of them. Barriers that at the time seemed insurmountable. But I kept coming back to that statement. You can do what you want. You just need to get out of your own way.

I didn’t intentionally try to get out of my own way. Honestly, I’m not sure how it worked, but it has. I almost feel like a magic wand has been waved over me. All of a sudden I realized that the barriers I thought were keeping me from my dreams were of my own making, and I have the power to either climb over them or tear them down.

I wish I could tell you step by step how to do this for yourself. The best I can do is tell  you to think about what barriers are standing between you and your dreams. Are they really insurmountable? Is there a way around them?

By the way, my friend is Tess Burns. She is doing some really amazing work with and for women. Sign up for one of her classes, or schedule a consultation meeting with her to see how she can help you realize your dreams.
