Amanda Star Kingsley is a woman of big dreams and a child of the universe. She delights in life's simple pleasures: making someone smile, learning about a new resource, making a new friend... she lives every day in the light of possibility.
Life has thrown her a few hurdles, but she refuses to let them define her, and now she’s teaching others to do the same!
As some of you may know, I work from home and although, I LOVE it, I'm gonna let you in on a little secret.
Some days I want to quit.
Some days I want to get a job waiting tables, or go work in a school. Having a steady paycheck for work someone else defines and I complete, sounds DREAMY. On really bad days, I think I'd make a good toilet cleaner in public restrooms; I look good in rubber gloves. (Those are usually the days I am about to get my period and the hormones have taken over.)
When I want to quit, it always come down to one thought- "I'm not enough":
...plug in any number of options, but it's always some version of
"I'm not enough".
The good news is that I'm not alone, and I am in fact smart enough to know that this is my survival brain telling me that it's safer doing what's "easy" than what's "possible".
Other than taking shortcuts across the field, I'm not much of an "easy" girl; I'm a "let's see what's possible girl". To show myself and the world what's possible, I have to be willing to wake up every day ready to screw up enough to succeed.
This is when I'm extra grateful for The Model!
"The Model"- a Brooke Castillo process, with an Amanda Kingsley twist...
Life out of alignment:
SITUATION - Life (Brain telling mind "I'm not enough")
MY THOUGHT ABOUT THE SITUATION - "I'm not enough"
THE FEELING THIS THOUGHT TRIGGERS - Defeat, desire to quit
THE ACTION I TAKE FROM THIS FEELING - Tosses hands in the air like she just doesn't care
THE RESULT OF THIS ACTION - No growth and potential for dreams being met- ZERO
