When I forgot to listen
Being a hypnotherapist I consider myself a good listener. Yet a year ago or so I forgot to listen to one very important person. Myself.
I’ve been running my business for a few years now but last year I stopped listening to my goals, my dreams and my ambitions. It sneaked up on me and to be honest I didn’t realise until I’d wasted a lot of precious time and money.
It’s easy to follow the crowd, listen to what this or that person is saying. Maybe changing course to be ‘just like them’, but what I was really doing was holding myself back.
So this year I decided to listen to me again, try those things that I’d feared having a go at. Do you know what happened? The work started to flow in like Niagara Falls. I’m not complaining, last year I was calling what I did work. This year I’m talking to people about my passion and I do not feel like I’ve ‘worked’ a day this year at all.
Are you doing something just because someone said you should? Didn’t make your own mind up?
Is fear stopping you from making that break? Jump through it, it’s definitely worth it. In fact it stopped my hair turning even greyer with the stress of the internal fight going on inside of me. I feel back in control again and I’m not going to lie, I like being back in control of me.
Listen to yourself. Would you treat your own best friend the way you treat yourself sometimes? No. I didn’t think so.
A big thank you to all those that helped pull my fingers out my ears too.
