Being enough plays a big part in getting what you want in life. So, as logic follows, being enough and believing you deserve good things is elemental in creating and experiencing satisfying and fulfilling relationships. Writer and life coach, Alan Cohen encourages us to ask ourselves this question, "If you knew you deserve what you want, how would you be approaching it differently?" Creator of Grey's Anatomy and author of The Year of Yes, Shonda Rhimes suggests we ask ourselves what it is we are saying yes to in our lives that we may not be happy about (ie. being overweight.) And once we have established how and why we are saying yes to that, we need to figure out exactly what it is we would need to start saying yes to to have the things in life we really want.
This weekend, I'm encouraging you to think about being enough. Start with filling in this blank - "I am not (blank) enough." Here are some thoughts to get you started.: I'm not smart enough, tall enough, talented enough, young enough, athletic enough, brave enough, ambitious enough, cool enough, good looking enough, thin enough, or just plain ol' good enough
Then, spend the weekend asking yourself, "If I were enough, what would I want to have, be, or do? And finally, try pretending for a spattering of moments though out the day that you absolutely are enough and notice what that feels like.
