Have you ever thought up a really cool invention, offer, or book title only to see a few months later that somebody else has already created it?
What about your idea to travel to a faraway exotic land only to never go?
Or maybe you’ve come up with a brilliant business idea only to let others talk you out of it.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret.
When the idea first arrives in your head, it’s inspired. Handed over from spirit. It’s a green light to joy. All systems go!
If you go forward with it and ask for the help you need, you’ll be delighted with the results.
All solutions will arrive with ease and excitement to make the idea unfold. Resources will be revealed to you with relative ease.
This process will happen every time… if you let it.
If you immediately shut the idea down as bogus, far-fetched, and/or too complicated… it will be.
The idea will go nowhere and you will have blown off your inner guidance to be captivated by your evil, lying inner gremlin.
Your internal gremlin likes to hold down the genius in you!
Here are some famous lines that your gremlin will use on you…
- You don’t have enough brains to carry this one out.
- You don’t have enough money or time to do this.
- You don’t have enough resources.
- Who do you think you are?
- That’s a dumb idea.
- Cool ideas like this are for other folks, not you.
- How you going to do that?!
- You’ll lose your ass if you try that!
- Yeah, right!
I bet right now that you have at least one idea or desire that you’ve put on the back burner for someday.
I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t scream (with confidence and support) from my rooftop at you,
“Turn on the heat and get that idea cooking!”
The other reason other people do and have things you don’t is because they moved forward on their idea. Many of them didn’t know how the heck they were going to carry it out when they first started. But they kept focused on the vision of their idea.
If the idea or desire has popped into your head, you have all the resources and skills to see it manifest. If you think any other way, you’re talking yourself out of it based on lies.
You’re raining on your own parade and buying into your nasty gremlin.
Do yourself a favor and tell someone, who you know will be supportive, about your vision. Commit to one action step to get it going.
The first steps can be small. Just asking someone for his or her support will be a great first step. If someone gives you negative feedback, ask yourself what feels true about their statements.
Suggestions are welcome, but always follow what brings you joy and sits right in your gut. Talk yourself into results, success, and joy.
If I listened to my gremlin I would’ve never gotten to my vacation destination of Colorado for the holidays in 2006. There were huge snowstorms that kept the Denver airport closed, backing up flights everywhere in the USA.
My gremlin began to tell me to look for another destination or to just stay home since the airline companies couldn’t get me anywhere within 500 miles of Denver until after Christmas.
I got committed to arriving at my intended destination before the holiday, and I was there twenty hours later by getting in the car and driving. And it was shockingly fun! (I’m usually not a huge fan of long car trips in a short time.)
I let myself enjoy the journey. My vacation turned out sooo much better than if I had flown.
Remember, a twist in the plot is not bad.
The thing that seems to be an obstacle can be the best catalyst for something even better. Use what seems to be a roadblock as a way to generate better ideas.
Trust that you’ll get to the destination… in the perfect timing. Your focus and beliefs will be the key.
Say it out loud: “I will do this. I can have anything I want. I rock!”
Now, talk yourself into it… instead of out of it! All ideas that make you excited are the right ones to go after.
