I’m talking about one of the biggest excuses we all use to not work on our creative dreams.
Can you guess what it is?
It’s the thing we say at least once a day to ourselves or to others:
“I DON’T HAVE TIME”.
I don’t have time to write this book, start this yoga teaching training, go for a walk, sign up for this course, work on my business…..
If we knew how powerful this phrase is, we would never say it again.
You’re probably thinking, ”But it’s true Paula, I don’t have time. I can’t get out my magic wand and make more time, can I?"
I know, exactly what you mean.
You probably would love to have more hours in a day to work on what’s really important to you. And you know what? It is possible and I also want to show you how.
Watch today’s video and you will never say “I don’t have time” again. I will give you an alternative that will make you feel empowered and will show you that you are in control of your time…and that time is not your enemy.
I don’t have time really means it’s not my priority.
Often we don’t allow ourselves to say “I don’t want to do this” or “I”m scared what will happen if I try that.”, so we rather say “I don’t have time”. This way we can play the victim and we don’t have to take responsibility for our choices.
Most of us learned from our parents or our society that there is this thing called “time” that always seems to be playing against us. We’ve heard it so many times, that we started believing that it is true and that we don’t have power over how we spend the 24 hours that we have.
But you can have a totally different relationship with time. Try it out. Instead of saying, “I don’t have time” say “I don’t want to do this” or “At the moment something else is more important to me. “
When you become aware that time is merely a reflection of your priorities in life, you will be able to reflect on the priorities that you’ve chosen and ask yourself again:
Should this be as important to me as it is?
Like for example: Is a clean apartment really more important to me than working two hours on my creative projects? And if not, why am I spending two hours on cleaning instead of creating my dreams?
This way, instead of feeling like a victim, you will feel empowered and in control of your life. And you will make different choices and spend time on things that bring you joy and are meaningful to you. Try it out!
Check if your priorities and your time-commitments are in alignment and if not, adjust your actions.
Sending you lots of love.
