I have heard this saying applied to people that others feel are fake or even worthless. Today, I want to turn the saying on its head a little bit and look at personal beliefs and habits.
- In our day-to-day lives, what are we doing just to look go, but the actions aren’t taking us where we want to go?
- Imagine the power of cleaning out pockets of time in daily life!
- Remind yourself that, ultimately, no one else is living your life, and trying to please others is a self-defeating policy. It’s impossible to please”them” enough to feel fulfilled.
- Focus on the power of looking in the mirror and liking the person staring back at you, a good, powerful person who can self-direct their own actions!
- Now for the harder one: which of my beliefs are “all dressed up, but have nowhere to go”?
- As I have pointed out in previous posts, I have personally found that there are absolute basic morals that transcend time and human law. Personally, I hang on to these dearly, because I believe they are the foundation of human decency.
- On the other hand, what beliefs to I hold about myself that might be limiting me from stepping up and trying harder?
- What beliefs am I clinging to about others (whether specific people or that never identifiable “them”) that puts up unnecessary walls and are only there to protect the way I want to see life?
This is all about dumping extra baggage. The more we examine life and make sure our beliefs and actions serve a purpose — and that the purpose is what they are supposed to be serving — the more emotional energy and time we will have to put to the things we truly want to be and do.
