Doing It Right

Many people I speak to, who are seeking advice, come up with the same phrase…

“I just want to make sure I’m doing it right.”

A simple phrase, but one that opens a big can of worms.

What does ‘right’ mean?

And who judges whether it’s ‘right’ or ‘wrong’?

And who gave them the authority to be the judge?

I’m not suggesting you don’t get advice from experienced people who have trod the path you’re intending to tread.

But it’s certainly worth asking yourself those questions…

And if the ‘judge’ in your case is the ‘police officer in your own head’ then it might be time to do some inner work.

It might be time to throw off those old limits and lean into your authentic self, in all its messiness, doubt, fear and discomfort.

Because that’s where you find the freedom… where you find life itself.
