You know, I run into so many people all around the world who are living this duality. One, I want more but two, I don’t want to distract what I have. And the challenge is, in order for you to have a breakthrough to the next level, your standard, your average, your ordinary has to be disrupted.
My grandmother says, your conviction and your convenience do not live on the same block.
And I repeat that all the time if you’ve heard me on another platform you may have heard me say that before. And I say that partly to remind myself what I’m passionate about.
Because what you’re passionate about, may require you to become uncomfortable and it could be inconvenient to achieve…
I’m amazed at how we want something new, we want something great but we don’t want to be inconvenienced. We don’t want anything we have currently, right now, to be disrupted. But we want to get more. We want to go for more. Well if you think about it, if you want to expand, everything you need and want is on the outside of your comfort zone.
If you keep doing exactly what you are doing, which is totally fine, just become okay with getting just exactly what you have. You can’t want something new but doing the same thing.
It doesn’t make sense. You say I really want something new, then immediately say where do I have to go to learn to think the way I haven’t been thinking, to do the things I haven’t been doing, to have the things I’ve said I want to have, to have the life experience. You’re going to have to say things that you don’t want to say and do things that you don’t want to do to be the person you always know yourself to be.
Can you be at peace with that? Now if you don’t want to do things that you don’t want to do, say that. And then go, okay, let me be okay with where I am. But the moment you say I want more, trust that what you know has gotten you to where you are.
When I begin to pursue, redefine, rediscover, or rebirth Lisa, I couldn’t go on my own reservoir. I couldn’t go to my library. I have to go find out what thoughts do I not have that I need to adapt.
What words have I not said that I need to articulate? What actions have I not implement that I need to do so that I can see and be the woman that I always know myself to be?
I invite you on every level to the next version of yourself. But I would tell you it won’t be the first to tell you, you have to do something that you haven’t done. You have to think about things that you haven’t thought of. And you have to be willing to give up the behaviors, the habits that have gotten you here?
If you’re willing to be inconvenienced for a breathtaking future, and I know it doesn’t sound motivational, but I’m not a motivational speaker. If anything, I’m a realistic speaker. If anything, I would have you lured in reality even if it makes you moderately to significantly uncomfortable, at least you know you’ve got a dose of reality.
Listen, if you want to have something that you’ve never gotten before, you’ve gotta be willing to do something that you’ve never done before. And it may stretch you.
But on the other side of it, you get to get something that you’ve always known to be you. Like the trade-off. The trade-off is so huge so when people would tell me, I hear it all the time, people say “Oh Lisa, how will I do this?” And I go, “do this-this and this”. I give you the steps. And the next thing they say, “hmmm, that’s so hard”.
I’m sorry. Did you think your breathtaking life would come on a merry-go-round? Did you think you gonna do the swings in there? You’re gonna sweat. So get up ready to sweat.
Get up ready to forgive the unforgivable. Get up ready to take the high road even when the smallness in you wants to get engaged. Avoid the fight because the fight keeps you in the little you when you’re committed to being the better version of yourself. Yeah, you will have to say some things you’ve never said and do something you’ve never done so you can meet the person you’ve always known yourself to be. I’ll be right there with you.
