If your sense of deserving isn’t wide and deep enough to hold your dream, you will fall short.
How do you know if you deserve your dream? If you are breathing, you deserve to have your heart’s desire. Simply by virtue of you being alive you are worthy and deserving of your dream.
You wouldn’t feel the longing if you didn’t have the capacity to manifest your dream.
Here are three keys to increasing your sense of deserving:
1. Focus on the good
Circumstances are bad only if you perceive them as such. Instead of panicking when life appears to throw you a curve, wait and invite the good to be revealed. Then give yourself the same benefit of the doubt. You are inherently good – just accept that.
2. Let go of past mistakes
It’s hard to move confidently into the life you have imagined if you are lugging deadweight. When you persist in carrying the baggage of your childhood, your shame or your belief that you are unlovable, you have no room for greater possibility. Let go of encumbrances by identifying and releasing your own baggage.
3. Practice gratitude to increase your sense of deserving
An “attitude of gratitude” enables you to construct your dream on a solid foundation of deserving. Begin by spending a day giving thanks to those you’ve criticized. From there, build a pattern of daily gratitude. When we begin to appreciate those we once condemned or took for granted, the field around the object of our appreciation broadens, attracting to itself even greater good.
When you practice these three principles, you will feel your sense of deserving expand and you’ll begin to see unexpected good things flow into your life.
Your Are Worthy!
