Today I'd like to talk about one of the biggest obstacles to success. Judgment.
Simply put, judgement is fear. Striving to be right all the time and make others wrong causes such a negative cycle in your life and blocks your energy and true potential. It holds us all back, tears us down, and hinders our success.
Acceptance, on the other hand, is love. It's nurturing, it feeds you while having compassion and empathy for others, without criticism or judgment. This creates a base for more blessings, more abundance, and more success. Let your heart, your Soul, feel the connections with others that we were all meant to share. This will strengthen you, build bonds with others, help you plant, then sow the seeds of real meaningful growth. Does this sound like success to you? It sure does to me.
Success will come to you naturally when you no longer put up resistance and take an open attitude. Often times, as a form of defense, people will criticize others when deep down they feel harshly judgmental about themselves. However, every time you are judging yourself you are really blocking your true inner potential. When people fail to fulfill their dreams, self-judgment is often the most limiting factor.
Success, as I see it, is a living reality that is taking place right here and now. So if that's the case, ,judgment can stop right now, as soon as you no longer feel the need to be right and make others wrong. To do this you must stop making yourself wrong. Let's face it, nobody is perfect, so instead of focusing on your flaws and perfection vs imperfection, keep your vision focused on your unfolding potential.
When it comes right down to it, what we're really good at is getting better from where we are now, not becoming human perfectionists. When we view ourselves as the 50 trillion cells that make up our bodies we see that each group of cells has their own job to do, but also works along side all the other cells. Take your liver and your heart cells. They all have their own very important jobs yet they have learned to live together, allowing each other to do their own work, knowing they all rely on each other for existence.
We would be much better served if we could adopt this same attitude towards others. Instead of fault finding in ourselves and then projecting this outward on to others, we should learn to focus on where we are and how we can improve from there. We need to drop this idea, largely portrayed by society, that we need to be perfect. All this does is cause judgment and putting others down in order to feel better ourselves. We try to make others wrong and ourselves right because our self-worth is tied to being right.
So many wars have been started and people have been killed in the name of being right. Who cares! Just let it go. Learn to accept you as you are. Faults and all. In time you will learn to accept the faults of others too, and then we can move towards the example so beautifully set by our own bodies.
In the end it's just You vs You that's holding you back from all the abundance and success that you've ever dreamed of.
You've been listening to the Soul Mechanic, and it's been my absolute pleasure to serve you. Sending you Love, Happiness, and Abundance. Now, and always.
Bye for now.
