Have you ever faced a seemingly impossible idea, but known with every single part of your body, it’s the right thing to do?
Have you ever been so sure of the path you’ve chosen that when you achieve it, it feels like the whole world conspired together to make it work for you?
Like a satisfying game of Tetris, all the pieces fit perfectly together, simply clicking into place, making you the ultimate champion.
For one year, it felt like I had that.
Every crazy idea just seemed to work out, every ridiculous scheme came together seamlessly.
Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t easy. There was plenty of stress, late nights and hard work. I was on this crazy rollercoaster and everything was going right.
The only problem is, it goes the other way too. Sometimes it just feels like the whole world is working against you and nothing will work out.
There’s something I want so much I’m sure of it, but I just can’t get my shit together.
Something feels wrong and no matter how hard I try, or how much I want it, I simply can’t line all the pieces up.
And, as the feeling that everything’s spiralling out of control takes over, I finally realise it’s not the world, it’s me that’s stopping things from working. It’s the pieces on the inside that aren’t alined yet.
I’m a big believer in following your gut, or perhaps it’s intuition. Either way, there’s no denying that when things feel right on the inside, when you’re so sure that what you’re doing is the right thing for you – that’s when everything lines up in the outside world.
So rather than looking first to external forces that seem to trip us up at every turn, it’s time to look inside and ask yourself what’s holding you back?
