This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Angela Durrant. You can find her on the web at www.angeladurrant.co.uk.
Whenever I am looking to move to another level, get out of my comfort zone, aim to up level my business, or grow personally. I seem to be bombarded with family crisis. Generally my partner gets ill. On this occasion as I am looking to create my first product, my partner has become seriously ill. My daughter aged 5 got sick as I was about to do my 1st teleclass. I can see a pattern as this has gone on a few times. I would suffer guilt in the past and feel torn that I wasn't making the family a priority – yet I am the sole income earner in the family currently. Other than plough on through it, how am I contributing to this? (if I am?) How do I move forward without such challenges to always overcome?
Hi Angela and thanks for the fantastic question. I KNOW many entrepreneurs can relate to what you are experiencing.
First, it's important to recognize that you create everything in your life; all the good and all the not-so-desirable.
Your subconscious is creating this because it knows it will stop you. It's worked in the past, and therefore, the pattern continues to persist.
The key to stopping it is to NOT let it stop you.
Let me explain. The purpose of your ego is to keep you safe and exactly in the same place as you are right now. As long as a distraction works, the distraction will persist.
In order to shift out of this pattern you have to adapt a different attitude. Instead of feeling guilt and trying to figure out why you always have these obstacles, stand strong, and take a bring-it-on mindset.
Tell your ego that you see what's happening and it's not stopping you this time. That no matter what it throws at you, you will continue to move forward.
In doing this, your ego loses its power over you and the pattern will be broken. You will actually feel your energy shift as you say, “BRING IT ON!” Energetically you move from victim to incredibly empowered.
Also, keep in mind, that you will ALWAYS have challenges to overcome. Be grateful for them, as they are the catalysts of your growth!
