Something I tell my clients all the time...
Dont be surprised by your success. Be humble. Be grateful. But please please please dont be surprised. Here's what I mean...
Sometimes we say things like "omg i cant believe this happened to me!" or "i dont know how I got here" - really?! 'Cause I could have sworn 3 months ago this is exactly what you wanted and we had a whole conversation on what you were going to do so that it actually comes to pass...
No judgement lol - I have been there too. Definitely said those things. Thankfully I have a coach who caught it quickly and made me reframe.
Because saying you dont know how something so great manifested is disempowering.
It's actually one of the worst things you can do when you achieve a level of success and then tell yourself you don't know how it happened!
Success is not happenstance. Success is not random. Success is planned for, prayed for, etc.
Saying you don't know how it happened discounts everything you did leading up to it.
You discount your prayers.
You discount your intentions.
You discount your work.
You wanted this. You asked for this. You showed up this! You put in time and effort for this! So how you gon' act like it just happened all will nilly?
So... Heres a quick lesson on the universal law of cause and effect.
YOU always operate at the level of cause, what you experience is the effect. In other words, you reap what you sow. In other other words, every action has an equal opposite reaction.
Every thought, every intention, every action that comes from you will ripple into something. You get to choose what that something is based on the said thoughts, actions, and intentions.
When you set your sights on achieving something great, and then you show up for it in the way you should... Lets not pretend we didn't play an active role in that process!
And here's why this is important - when you can get behind the belief that you are in fact co-creating your life, and you see it in real time, and you acknowledge it in real time then you learn to recognize just how powerful of a being you truly are. God did not make you by accident. He didnt give you the desire just 'cause. Trust it.
