Simple Abundance: The Inner Journey

by Sarah Ban Breathnach

Today I want you to become aware that you already possess all the inner wisdom, strength, and creativity needed to make your dreams come true. This is hard for most of us to realize because the source of this unlimited personal power is buried so deeply beneath the bills, the car pool, the deadlines, the business trip, and the dirty laundry that we have difficulty accessing it in our daily lives. When we can’t access our inner resources, we come to the flawed conclusion that happiness and fulfillment come only from external events. That’s because external events usually bring with them some sort of change. And so, we’ve learned to rely on circumstances outside ourselves for forward or backward momentum as we hurtle through. But we don’t have to do that any longer. We can learn to be the catalysts for our own change.

Coaching Call to Action

This week spend some time looking at yourself. Get quiet and acknowledge all of your strengths and skills and how you show up each day. Then, if there is a change you want to make to improve yourself so that it will really make a difference for you, take time to just consider that change this week. Get clear on what that change would be. Spend some time envisioning that you have already made that change. Take at least 3 actions from the place of already having made that change. What happened? How did that feel? Was it easy? Hard? Spend some quiet time journaling about your results and learnings.
