“Most people die with their music still locked up inside them.”
― Benjamin Disraeli
There are a gazillion cited reasons why people don’t share their gifts with the world or don’t ever go after what they really want in life. And after you sum up all the reasons, it boils down to one word:
Fear of failing.
Fear of making a huge, unforgivable mistake.
Fear of success.
Fear of appearing selfish, greedy, or non-spiritual.
Fear of not being able to make it financially.
Fear of not having the confidence to really pull it off.
Fear of dealing with the hard stuff.
Fear that you can’t handle it.
Fear of not having all the answers right now.
And finally… falling into the trap of being guided by fear-based thoughts of your monkey mind versus listening to your authentic, soul self. Your fragile ego wants you to be protected at all costs, and will always tell you to stay put and keep your music, your purpose, your personal power, and your desires, safely tucked away.
Your ego tells you the biggest lie of all…. If you don’t put yourself out there, or go after what you want, you won’t get hurt. But when something is burning inside of you, screaming at you to be released, it hurts. You are going against every grain in your body and are swimming upstream.
I get it. Been there, done that. All of the fears listed above come right from my personal database of poo. And I couldn’t get out of the poo until I started listening to ME. I thought I didn’t have the confidence, but in reality, I was never without confidence, I just wasn’t tapping into the right place to get to it.
There is such FREEDOM in owning your personal power.
You do what calls to you versus what people think you “should” do. You follow your dreams, knowing that if you fail, it doesn’t really matter because of what you already gained. You embody self-love, and know that you can handle anything that comes your way. You know you can make it, and you approach life with love instead of fear. You unlock your music. You impact the world.
Listen to your soul voice.
