Remember being a teenager and hitting a growth spurt? I don’t either, but I know it happened 😁
During that time, our physical bodies were literally expanding, pushing never before pushed limits.
That’s what’s happening for you energetically when you go through a growth phase too.
You are pushing new limits and expanding into new territory. But the difference between the two is that during your current growth phases you have the choice NOT to grow.
We always have a choice.
So the key – granted you do want to grow – is to discern what is a new choice that will move you forward vs what would be the same old choice that would keep you where you’re at.
Just because a new opportunity arises does NOT mean it’s a new choice. Be very careful to discern when a new opportunity is actually a choice you’ve already been making.
When you’re able to discern that and to see that the particular opportunity will actually keep you stuck in the same loop – it’s time to make a new choice!
Saying No to an opportunity can seem like the exact wrong thing to do, but I’m telling you – it’s quite the opposite when it comes to doing Soul inspired growth.
Two questions to ask yourself to help you discern whether to be a Heck Yes or a Big No to an opportunity are:
- Does this opportunity A: uphold the exciting energy of who I’m becoming, or B: does it have the same energy of who I was before?
- Does this opportunity A: feel expansive and aligned to who I know I am at Soul level, or does it B: feel contracted and part of old habit patterns that I no longer want to be in?
If you answered Yes to part B of either of them then… You know what you gotta do – suck it up and say No to the opportunity.
I hope you’ve found this helpful and I’d love to hear your feedback on it 💛✨
