Go ahead and rock the boat!
“I don’t want to rock the boat” I hear this all the time from clients. They don’t want to ask for a raise that they are overdue as they don’t want to rock the boat.
They feel disconnected or ignored in their relationship yet won’t rock the boat by asking for their needs to be met.
They don’t want to try a new job or a business as they don’t want to rock the boat with family as they are committed to the struggle.
Rocking the boat can be scary for sure, but what are you really saying to the Universe when you say you don’t want to rock the boat?
1. I would rather stay miserable than make waves.
2. I choose to let fear drive my life, even if it costs me everything I really want.
3. I care more about maintaining the status quo, than about loving my life.
The thing is, you’ll never create what you really want in your life without rocking the boat. All change requires rocking the boat.
In order to welcome something new you have to let go of something old, and that shifts the tide.
If you want to experience awesome fulfilment and create a loving impact in this life time, you may as well get comfortable rocking the boat.
Who said or decided rocking the boat was something negative or something be ashamed of, anyway?
We walk around assuming that if we do what we want or create something we love, that that takes something from someone else. It dosen’t!!!!!!!!!!
Take one small step at the time, decide where you need change most, and devise a plan and work backwards from your goal. Stay focused on the end result, you are not responsible for other's reactions, that's their reaction to change, nothing to do with you.
The more you fully enjoy your own life, the more you’ll inspire others to do the same.
It’s up to you to write the rules and create the formula for your own happiness and that includes what ripples you make and how you want to make them.
So get rockin your boat and see the joy and the fun start to flow into your life.
