Sometimes it takes an overwhelming Breakdown to have an Incredible Breakthrough
In the breakdown moment, the very thing that we’ve feared, resisted, denied will stand before us, shaking its finger in our face and sticking its tongue out at us. It will show us things about ourselves that we refused to see or acknowledge.
It will tease us, taunt us, push us, pull us to the verge of breaking down. In fact, that is its purpose.
In the breakdown moment, our defenses break down. Our fantasies shatter. Our excuses fail. Our resistance erodes. In that moment, when there is nothing standing between us and the thing we fear the most, we will be forced to step into our greatness, because that is what life is demanding of us.
We are totally able, perfectly prepared, fully capable of doing the very thing we have convinced ourselves we could not do.
Today, let’s be devoted to doing just one thing that will help to step into our greatness!
