To actually create something we desire takes effort. It’s a journey. And every journey is a physical, challenging, messy process. When we get to the discouraging bits, it can be hard to keep putting one foot in front of the other. In the Hero’s Journey, this stage is known as the Pit of Despair. It’s not as much fun as the earlier stages (Hearing the Call, the Initiation), but it’s the most important. It’s in the Pit of Despair that our limiting beliefs show themselves, masked to look like insurmountable obstacles.
• I’ll never get all this clutter cleared!
• I’ll never be able to create systems to stay organized!
• It’s just too hard!
• It’s just too time consuming!
Here’s the Transforming Truth: those insurmountable obstacles are actually your opportunities! Shift your limiting beliefs to supportive ones… and magically, you’re putting one foot in front of the other and on the path to success. Oh… and the other good news: it’s while you’re writhing in the Pit of Despair that your Allies show up. You’ll recognize these able guides, who’ve traveled this path before, because they are radiating light and love and compassion, offering you just the boon you needed… And soon you’re moving toward your Break-Through… and if we could fast-forward just a little, you would see that you, yes… YOU… are walking tall, and glowing joyful inspiration for others behind you on the path.
