How do you stop blocking your own success?
First, you must become aware that you are the one doing it.
How do you know?
Most likely you are focusing our attention, thoughts, words, social media posts, conversations with friends + mental mindset on lack, on what isn’t working and on what you don’t want to experience.
Since like attracts like – whatever you give your attention to expands, creating more of it in your life.
So instead of focusing on what you don’t want, the key is to pivot your attention to what you DO want.
This is not new age philosophy, it’s physics. Everything is made up of energy.
And it happens whether you are aware of it or not. Becoming aware of it can transform your life.
Here are 5 steps to stop blocking your own success.
1. Become aware of the energy you are emitting.
Every human on the planet gives off an “energy.” You notice this most when you first meet someone – you get a sense of their energy, often without them even saying a word.
Our “energy” or vibration changes depending on what it is we are focused upon.
2. Decide to stop feeding your state of lack.
When you point out the lack – you feed the energy of lack.
When you speak about the lack – you feed the energy of lack.
When you think about the lack – you feed the energy of lack.
You cannot feed the energy of lack and attract abundance. It defies law.
Stop yourself in a conversation or a thought, pause + choose a new direction.
So how do you sit in the midst of pilot season with no auditions and attract abundance?
3. Focus on the abundance already in your life.
To attract more abundance, you have to match the feeling of abundance.
To find feelings of joy + abundance right now, you may have to get off the subject of “pilot season” altogether. You may also have to stop using your acting career to define your worth.
After all, it’s the feeling you’re after, in the end.
What you really want is how having auditions or booking a pilot will make you feel.
4. Focus on the feeling you’re after.
Ask yourself: What is the feeling I want to experience?
Maybe it’s joy, love, freedom, passion, creativity.
5. Do something today to create this feeling.
Ask yourself: What can I do today to ignite this feeling within me?
Maybe you could:
- Watch a sunset + marvel at the beauty in the world.
- Play with a dog or cat and feel their unconditional love.
- Engage with a child + learn from a master of being in the present moment.
- Sing, dance, paint, or anything that ignites your soul + brings you joy.
I know, I know, but after that, you still want more auditions + to book a pilot right? So does every actor.
What if instead, you let your standard of success this pilot season be how much joy you achieved each day? What might happen if this was your new approach?
“The achievement of anything that you desire must be considered success, whether it is a trophy or money or relationships, or things. But if you will let your standard of success be your achievement of joy — everything else will fall easily into place. For in the finding of joy, you are finding vibrational alignment with the resources of the Universe.”
– Abraham Hicks
Excitement, joy, abundance and possibility is available to you every day, unless you get up and replay the old tapes in your mind with the old thoughts, the old beliefs and the old actions.
It’s a new day. Notice something new. Do something new.
Abundance is all around you. Focus on it + watch how easily you invite more success into your life.
Love + Gratitude,
