When it comes to your goals and dreams don’t be afraid to show your warts because that’s when the real you clearly comes through.
Many people think of warts as a bad thing, but when it comes to smart goal setting the warts are an analogy for your unique wants and needs that you are afraid to stand on the mountain top, yell from your lungs and fully claim. Is this a problem? Yes, because if you don’t fully express and claim what you want more and more of everyday, you won’t get it. Egads!
How can you tell when you’re are afraid of expressing and claiming your dreams and goals?
This is also known as “warts look scary list.”
- you find yourself more concerned about what others are thinking about your individual dreams and goals; do they “fit” what others deem good and you create or re-arrange your dream and goals based upon this information
- you have an opportunity to share your big dream with a group of people, but when it comes time you go mute, because you’re hearing a voice tell you that “it’s not enough” or some other version of these words
- you create an amazing story for what you really want deep down inside, but when it comes to telling others you find you keep “editing” your story and notice that you really THAT interested in the new version
- you build up your courage muscle to share a piece of your dream with a good friend. Instead of them nodding and encouraging you they have turned into a “nay sayer” and are telling you it’s too big, too different, you’ll never be able to do it in this life time. So you stuff deep down inside what you really want and feel your inner passion drying up
These are some common “reasons” I hear that make “warts” look scary.
YOU + YOUR UNIQUE EXPRESSION = WARTS (what makes you different and amazingly wonderful)
