Have you ever thought, “I’m not as far as I should be in life” or “I should be a millionaire by now” or “I was supposed to be married with 3 kids, living in my dream house, but instead, I’m…” or “my business should be thriving, but I’m struggling to make ends meet…” or some version of this?
I honestly don’t know anyone who hasn’t suffered from these trickster-thoughts at least once in their life.
But you know what?
These thoughts are meant to derail you, to make you feel guilty and think that you’re not good enough and that you should have your shit together.
(Have you noticed that you can’t control life? You can be in the FLOW OF LIFE, but you can’t ACTUALLY control it. Yes, the Universe is benevolent – at least, that’s what I choose to believe. But it doesn’t mean that things will always go your way. I’m sure you’ve noticed that, sometimes, life has a mind of her own, and it doesn’t always match our idea of what our life should be.
Life is not manifested from a vision board.
(Listen, I have nothing against vision boards, I occasionally like to stick inspiring photos on my Pinterest board. But vision boards don’t account for real-life events and unexpected curveballs such as cancer, the death of a loved one, divorce or a kid getting sick.)
So, what do you do when you’re laying in bed in the middle of the night, looking at someone else’s perfect life on Instagram, thinking that YOUR LIFE SUCKS?
First, you stop that thinking, right now. Stop it.
These thoughts aren’t real. They’re an illusion created by your little ego mind having a temper tantrum, just like a 3-year-old child who wants yet another shiny toy he doesn’t need. Don’t give in to it. Snap out of it right away.
Take a deep breath, close your eyes and reconnect to your inner wisdom.
Here’s one thing you need to ground yourself in: Your inner wisdom would NEVER punish you or make you feel like you are not enough.
And your inner wisdom is quite literally your inner compass. It’s your connection to divine life, to infinite new possibilities – which means that pivoting and changing the course of your life can happen in an instant.
Your job? Is to WAKE UP to your full potential. And that potential? It doesn’t exist IN YOUR HEAD. It lies at the intersection of wisdom and divine intelligence.
PS: Don’t quite know HOW to connect to that incredible part of yourself? There’s a huge library of resources waiting for you on the blog including over 60 podcast episodes designed to help you WAKE UP your inner CEO™ so you can THRIVE in every area of your life.

This leaves you more clear, confident and settled. You trust yourself more.
