Live the life your soul wants

3:Awakening to your potential

Before you can reach your potential, you have to know what emotional and thought patterns are driving the decisions you make every day. From there, you can begin to make better decisions that allow you to become who you really can be.

Behaviour patterns ^

Your future is a continuation of a line beginning in your past, and passing through your present self. So if you want your future to be different, you need to shift your present thoughts and circumstances to be better aligned to where you want to be in the future.

However, your present will have a lot of beliefs about yourself and your possibilities that may have resulted from past decisions that are no longer relevant. Until you challenge such decisions, you may find it difficult to change yourself or your circumstances.

Learned and repeated behaviour patterns are often the culprits for sabotaging your opportunities and choices. However, they play a part in you learning your life lessons, but if you don’t recognize the pattern, and you keep repeating it, then it becomes difficult to learn the lesson. A bit like Groundhog Day! It can be a relief to finally recognize these patterns, so you can then make a choice to let go of them, or dig deeper, and learn why you are attached to them.

Making a few mistakes along the way in life only causes a few bumps in the road, but if you keep making those mistakes over and over again, it is possible to shape the road more permanently. However, if you keep your eye on what’s right in front of you, and become more self-aware of your feelings and actions, you will make better life path decisions, and create less bumps in the road.

Summary: Find your pattern ⇒ Find your lesson ⇒ Change your life.

Self-awareness ^

To change yourself, you need to be aware of what decisions you are making, and how they affect changes in your life.

Once you identify patterns of thought and actions that you may not have been previously aware of, you can begin to make changes for the better. It is not uncommon for people to have those ‘of course’ moments where they sort of knew it all along, but until acknowledging it consciously it was ignored. This can bring person a lot of relief and empowerment when these patterns are grounded and brought to light.

When you are more self-aware, you become empowered to move forward with more confidence to take responsibility for your feelings and actions. This can help a lot in bringing clarity, and enables you to reduce stress from your life, and move closer to being the real you.

For continued growth it is important to live life attaining more self-awareness as it helps you understand yourself better, and empowers to make changes, and choices that enhance your life.
