I’ve been having fun playing with a fun tool.
It’s a mind map. And doing it really is like rewiring your brain for a different experience. You can see the new neural pathways forming as your map evolves.
I’d encourage you to do it for anywhere you feel stuck or undeserving.
But let’s start with self esteem.
In the end, it comes down to one thing.
When we get past the usual scapegoats like the economy, the rancorous divorce, being “bad” with money, the real reason many of us struggle to make money doing what we love is because we don’t feel like we deserve it.
We were lollygagging in the back yard last Sunday, pulling weeds and taking lots of breaks on the swing, when something reminded me that summer is right around the corner.
It wasn’t the sun on my eyelids or the daffodils blooming under the bare trumpet vine. It wasn’t the exuberance in the voice of the little wren looking to build a nest in the shed.
It was a chorus of “Happy Birthday” drifting up from the park behind our house.
