She has tormented me for ten years. She has cost me money, time and wasted my investments.
Every single time I am about to “launch” that great creative genius inside of me, Frightful Mags pops up her head and taunts me mercilessly, leaving me so fearful that I retreat to this small corner where the familiar voices soothe me, reminding me over and over, that my place is just this small, dark corner. Each time it happens, I remain trapped in the dark room, even afraid to open my eyes for fear that the light would burn me.
Today, I had enough of her. Even within the dark shadows of my mind, the light came through burning those walls which has kept me languishing for so long. She stood up to me. Her familiar voice rose high but I found the courage to whip her back. I cursed her up and threw a tantrum. I heard my voice transcend the prison walls which locked me with the fear of success and saw the bolts of laziness spring out, releasing me to unfamiliar grounds and the determination to free myself. I suddenly heard the sweetness of a voice that seem to flow out of my mouth – a voice which I barely remembered. The sweetness of the voice reminded me of the time before she built those prison walls around me. The walls started to crumble, piece by piece. The longer I sang, the more my voice seem to become one with the entire universe. The light engulfed me lifted me into this effortless vortex where I felt my soul expanded to push me to the outer boundaries where I could hear magnificent voices cheering me on.
But wait. Just before I leave, I must give Frightful Mags the eviction notice so that she knows for certain that there is a price to pay when she has sucked up my earnings, time and investment for far longer than I should have tolerated. I could have another tenant.Dear Frightful Mags, This is to notify you that your failure to step up to your success over the last ten years has rendered you in violation of our lease agreement which stated that you were going to:
- stand up for your life
- use your talent to generate a million dollar income and not merely just enough to get by
- get rid of all these self- destructive, sabotaging beliefs such as, “I don’t have time”; I am not smart enough”; “I have not had this success in my past”; “My life is out of control,” I will rise when I win the lottery,” “Other people are not cooperating with me”, “I am no one important.”
- be a voice for the vulnerable and
- use your life as an inspiration to help others achieve their dreams.
Who do you need to give an eviction notice to? Don’t let this tenant occupy free space. TuneIn to what he/she is costing you and kick their but out of your life so that you can create space for the MAGNIFICENT person you are!
