Hello friends. How’s the ordinary, everyday guru search going? Are you looking? Are you expecting to meet them? They are everywhere. Dare to look; just dare. Roger (below) has asked me a question that everyone should be interested in. Let’s take a peek.
This is my third email to you with this question. Maybe the third time will be a charm. Here’s my problem: I am frozen solid. I cannot seem to make one new move that gets me anywhere new. What am I so afraid of? I plan and I promise myself I will try something new, but I don’t. This has been going on for years.
I know you don’t know me, but you are very insightful. Any tips at all to offer? I’d love you to be my fly-on-a-wall ordinary guru.
Thanks for helping me see what I can’t see, Roger M.
You mention that I don’t know you. I do know you. We are all very much the same. So, I will be your fly-on-the-wall ordinary guru. I’ll have to remember that one. I like it.
With the condition you’ve described, it is easy to see what is stopping you from having any kind of a breakthrough in any area of your life. You are frozen solid because you are afraid of losing your existence. That is the biggest challenge to anyone who wants to breakthrough to a new life so they can experience something truly fresh and exciting.
Poor people cannot experience riches, rich people cannot experience intimacy, nervous people cannot experience calm, and timid people cannot experience excitement – it matters not who you are or what you do, you will never experience that new desire until you drop the identity you cling to that is made up of all of your past memories and stories.
You are afraid to let go of the old you, the old stories of who you are, Roger. But unfortunately, only when you do that, will you be able to create a new life for yourself. You will never jump to that higher level of living that you yearn to attain while you are chained to the past – to your story, your memories, your limiting decision, your many inhibitions.
You’ve got to lose yourself, Roger.
Lose the old self with all of those programmed reactions.
Then you can win a new life.
There is no other way to begin.
That, my friend, is what has you frozen solid, that is what has you unable to make even one effective move that heads you in a new direction.
Blessings to you Roger … Rob
Okay, folks have you applied this lesson to you personally.
Have you asked, “What’s this got to do with me?”
Where are you stuck?
Is it really the world that holds you back
Is it your identity that chains you to the past?
I did not go from being a school teacher for 17 years to a very, very successful real estate entrepreneur without dying of the “I AM” that I assumed myself to be when I was teaching school. No way!
Blessings and love to all of you, Rob
PS Your current identity does everything possible to prevent you from letting it go so you can begin a new life. Watch out; it’s clever. It will tell you that you don’t have what it takes. Well I am telling you that you do!
