It takes will to be in your heart


It takes will to be in your heart. This may sound contradictory, but it isn’t. Living the life you love is not always sunshine and butterflies. The challenge is that when you are going FOR what you love, you are going AGAINST safety.

We all have an ego which has the function to keep you safe: it conveys your deepest fears and it will do everything to prevent you from stepping out of your safety and comfort zone. And anything new is out of that zone.

Imagine a dog who sees a rabbit and wants to run, whilst his master tells him not to. The dog will be heavily torn between these two voices, his instinct’s and his master’s. And that’s how it looks inside of you when you go for your heart’s calling.

Your ego will throw up all these doubts and fears and limiting beliefs that you can’t do it. That it is kind of impossible, or that you are not worth it. And it will communicate them through your thoughts and feelings. Continuing on the path of your heart, despite all the uncomfortable feelings and thoughts coming up, does take will.

When you are not aware of these voices and feelings, chances are high that you will deviate from your path or simply walk back, telling yourself that it didn’t feel right (because it doesn’t at times!).

Staying on track requires the consciousness about what is going on, but also the will to defy all the thoughts and feelings that come up when you dare to leave the safe haven of staying where you are.

“Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” – Roy T. Bennett
