I like to find meaning in most of my life experiences. However, right before I left for Bali this past May, I was quite confused by a series of events.
In a very short span of time, I was involved in breaking four different glass objects. Prior to that, it had been years since I broke anything.
Was I clumsy? Was I distracted and not paying attention? Was it partially the fault of my youngest son, who happened to be in my arms when three of the four objects fell to the ground and shattered?
I really didn’t understand why I was suddenly breaking so many things. However, once I was in Bali, I was able to gain some clarity about what was going on.
In Bali, I was outside of my normal circumstances, and I was able to get the perspective that only comes when there is little stress and lots of space to just be.
In that environment, I realized that the path I’ve been on had brought me to this current place of understanding. In particular, I’ve had specific opportunities in the past six months to learn more about the ancient Vedic and Taoist practices, and my new knowledge about human potential has shattered my previous ideas about what is possible.
I have been, in essence, breaking through my own glass ceiling. The glass ceiling that was defined by the thoughts and ideas I had about what’s possible.
What is your glass ceiling?
What are the self-limiting thoughts that keep you from realizing your potential?
Under what circumstances do you curb yourself with such thoughts as, “Oh, I can’t do that,” or, “No, that’s not possible for me”?
These self-imposed limitations are not absolute truth. They are simply a byproduct of cultural norms and what others have told you is possible. You might not even know they exist! Yet, your limiting thoughts create a glass ceiling that prevents you from living the life you really want.
For how much longer will you continue to live under your glass ceiling? Isn’t it time to break through and let go of the self-doubts that prevent you from attaining a more amazing life?
As long as you are caught up in the busy routine of day-to-day life, you will continue to live under the confines of your glass ceiling. Nothing will change and you will stay where you are. However, when you take yourself out of your normal environment, you give yourself an opportunity to see your life in a whole new light.
That’s what being in Bali does for me. Everything about Bali – the culture, geography, people – is so different from my everyday life. When I’m confronted with this entirely different way of living, my ideas about “the way things are” are turned upside down, and I become aware of possibilities that I didn’t know existed. In Bali, I’m free of my daily routines, and I can let go of the heavy responsibilities that come with having a career, home and family and really see my life.
This freedom, this change in perspective, creates heightened awareness of your senses, thoughts and actions. You’re able to gain a new viewpoint of how you’ve been living your life, and of the glass ceiling that blocks you from getting what you really want.
You CAN change your life. But to do that, you need to get out of your busy-ness and give yourself time and space to really see things in a different light.
If it’s hard for you to imagine how to do that, I invite you to join me this Fall in Bali and shatter the glass ceiling that has been holding you back. To help you make this a reality, I’m offering an “early decision savings” that is valid until the end of June.
