They Aren't Supposed To Get It
Here’s the thing about going for big dreams …
We like to have company and support and approval for big moves in life.
We prefer for our loved ones to cheer us on and encourage our success; to reinforce our choices and agree with our plan.
We want those closest to us to walk the path with us, especially when it’s a heart-pounding fear-inducing journey.
But here’s the other thing …
… those folks whose approval and support we want for making our big dream come true – they probably don’t get it.
They don’t understand what your heart is wired for.
And they aren’t supposed to.
It’s your dream, not theirs.
Some of your loved ones may be evolved enough to understand that your desire for something is reason enough to support you in it.
But lots of others aren’t going to see it that way. They’ll caution you instead of encourage you. They’ll point out the pitfalls and blind spots instead of rejoicing in your possibilities and potential success.
Because they don’t hear the same whispers from Source that you hear. They don’t feel the same pull that you feel.
And that’s okay.
Your dream isn’t in their vortex, so they probably think they’re doing you a kindness when they try to dissuade you from it.
That’s why it’s important that you not require their support or approval.
Yes, it’s nice when someone else joins in to add to our vibrational momentum. It’s empowering when friends and family are excited for what we’re up to.
But when that support isn’t there, don’t let it halt your progress or give up on your dream.
Your own inner guidance (or higher self, essential self, inner wisdom, whatever you want to call it) – that’s the only approval you want to check for.
Listen to those whispers of joy that call you forth. Honor the inner nudges that are fueled by your favorite fantasies. Say yes to the inspired actions that steer you toward your dream.
Even when no one else gets it.
Because your dream is specific to you. It doesn’t speak to anyone else. Only you can hear it calling you forth.
So it’s okay when no one else understands.
They aren’t supposed to get it. Don’t let it stop you when they don’t.
PS – that doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. Coaches come in real handy at times like this. So if you’re in the mood for some professional support to make the dream happen, give yourself the gift of a coach. And for those of you who think you can’t afford it, think again.
