The fact is, it doesn’t need to be one or the other. We don’t need to feel super great to get great results. We are allowed to feel scared. We can feel big, and at the same time we can bring our small and scared selves along with us.
Imagine that a part of ourselves feels so small – it’s like a mouse. And another part of ourselves feels large and powerful, like an elephant. Sure, we can meditate on being the elephant for 30 days straight, but if that mouse still exists after the 30 days it doesn’t mean we’re not good enough to get started. The trick is simply to take actions based on feeling big, and not take actions based on feeling small. We can feel both, but our actions can stream from only the best.
