You are the one who is holding yourself back from this. You have all the skills and you have everything you need right now. What is happening is that the more you grow, the more you are challenged to face everything that has held you back.
It is the nature of growth, when you set outside of where you are, you will always be challenged to face that which held you there. It is why growth is so hard because this does not stop so long as you need growing. You either stay where you are or you grow and face everything that held you in place. This is why growth is so hard and challenging.
Most people will be content with the devil they know, rather than face the devil they do not. This, where you are right now is the hardest part of these lessons, to have it all at your fingertips, to see the path, but to turn back because of fear and blocks. This is what you have to overcome, to know that it will never stop, getting what you want and growing involves you continually pushing through these challenges and lessons and take what life throws at you no matter what it might be. Everything that comes at you, you must choose to embrace your skills and your mental mastery and rise above it, no matter how hard it hits you, no matter how much it hurts you.
No, the challenges, never will stop, you will just learn to face them and learn to navigate them. You will come to rely on your skills and your abilities and know that whatever is thrown at you, you will be able to conquer. You will see the challenges as part of the journey, they will not be so devastating, they will not destroy you. It is not overcoming the lessons; it is being able to face them with the confidence and the ability to defeat them without losing yourself.
You will face them with the strength of your core, the alignment of yourself with your higher self, and know that whatever comes your way you will rise from it. You must have Trust, faith, and confidence in yourself. It is like anything, the more you do It, the better you get at it. It becomes like a game.
Yes, a game. What is the next challenge? What is the next thing you have to face? How will you master it? How will you prove victorious? What challenges will the next level bring? It can be a lot of fun. What you will know though, is that even though each level brings new challenges, you will be better equipped to deal with them and you will come to enjoy the challenges. Part of life here is the journey and the challenges that we face along the way. So many people hold themselves back through fear, fear of others, fear of themselves, fear of failure, fear of success. In the end, though, what will you be remembered for?
They will be forgotten if they let their fears prevail. Who cares what people think? Who cares what they say? Who cares what judgments are passed on you by people who have no bearing on your life? Even people who are in your life, who cares what they say? You have to detach yourself from their views and thoughts. People like to divide others, they like to create problems. People delight in getting in the business of others and causing rifts.
They don’t care about you and they will forget about you when a new target comes around. They will be your enemy one day and your friend the next. Do not let them dictate the course of where you go. People who dwell in these energies are not worth sacrificing your dreams over what they will say.
The best thing to do is do what you want and ignore the negative talk that will always be around you. The higher your vibrations rise the more you will see these people and how they act, how they just delight in the drama and the conflict. It gives those people something to do and your confidence should not be bound to it. Fears for those people and their words will only hold you back.
Be bold, be brave, and just put yourself out there. Whether they laugh, praise, or criticize at least they are looking. That is how you get to where you want to go, be seen, put yourself out there, and don’t worry about the judgments and what people are going to say. This is one of the secrets to success. Doing what you are called to without fear of judgment and criticism. You will delight in the praise and chuckle at the criticism for you will see it for what it really is.
“This is a reminder to soar free, soar high, as high as you can go, and never let anyone who cannot see what is above the clouds limit where you can soar. Only you can decide that and only you can decide how high you go. It all rests on you. No one can stop you; no one can limit you, only you can limit yourself if you heed their word.
