For almost a year I held phone masterminds (at no pay to me) with a client. It was a win-win because we supported each other in our quest to be the best – or so I thought. We "Nevillized" our goals. We "What If Upped" our intentions. We "remembered" our successes. It was thrilling, energizing, exhilarating and wonderful. But one day I told my client that I received another standing ovation at a recent talk. I was sharing my success with someone who I thought would be inspired by it. He was silent. I later learned he felt sick. When I explored why, he said my success made him ill. "How much is enough?" he asked. Think about this… As long as we talked about an imaginary success, it was fine. But when I reported an actual success, it wasn’t fine. What’s the difference? In my experience, it’s often safe to imagine what you want but not safe to actually manifest it. Obviously, there’s a deservingness issue there. When success is out of arm’s reach, it’s fair to fantasy having it; but grasp it and now it’s real. Do you accept it or push it away? It depends on your comfort level with success. And how much is enough, anyway? At what point is success "too much"? Who says a certain level of success is acceptable but more isn’t? I’ve been saying for decades that you can have virtually whatever you want as long as you don’t need it. If you need something, there’s never enough. If you’re satisfied with this moment and just welcome more, than "enough" isn’t even an issue. You just enjoy life. You accept more because it’s joyful to do so. And looking at this issue even deeper, doesn’t concern over "too much" reveal a belief in scarcity? As I explained in my bestselling audio program The Abundance Paradigm, your perception creates your reality. You can look at life and see scarcity orabundance. It depends on your mindset. Someone who thinks it’s possible to have "too much" success is coming from the scarcity mindset. That’s fine if that’s what you choose. Most of us don’t consciously choose it, though. And once you realize you have a choice, why would you choose scarcity over abundance? How good can you stand it, anyway? My client who confronted me about "How much is enough?" when I mentioned my standing ovation, was pulling back from his own potential success. Self-sabotage stopped him. He hit his comfort zone of deservingness. Decades ago I was taught to be inspired by someone’s success, not jealous of it. When I was broke and struggling, I learned to see someone driving the nice car or living in the nice house and feel proud of them and inspired by them. It made a huge difference in how I felt about myself, and released energy that I could use to build my own dreams. Today my success is real. The lesson here is to go for your inspired dreams without reservation or explanation, surround yourself with supportive people who truly want your success as much as you do, and enjoy your adventure forward as every moment is the miracle you seek. Steve Jobs said – "Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition." – Steve Jobs There’s no such thing as a ceiling on good, happiness, deservingness or "enough." Unless you think there is. What do you think? How much do you deserve? How much is enough for you? About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
