If you’re anything like me or my clients, you LOVE self-help and personal development and devour anything that says it’s going to get you where you want to be. But have you ever wondered why there’s so much contradicting how-to advice out there? One book says to do it one way and another says to do it another way. It can be so confusing and frustrating when you’ve “tried it all” and nothing seems to be working. Here are three reasons why this happens:
Reason #1: Different things work for different people – Just because something works for someone else doesn’t mean it’s going to work for you. When looking for a mentor or resource, make sure you find someone who understands this. Energetically, we are all different. This means we may attract different results when we take the same actions as somebody else. So find a mentor who seems to be energetically similar to you/you can relate to, but remember to give yourself permission to get in touch with your own intuition. This will help you feel whether or not you resonate with the plan other resources lay out for you. Don’t forget that you are a unique individual and that what works for some may not work for you (and that’s OK, use it as an opportunity to go inward and create your own personalized plan).
Reason #2: Different things work at different times in your life – Have you ever tried to do something that worked like a charm a few years ago, but no longer works today? This is because you are different energetically today than you were years ago! That old way of doing things no longer is in alignment with where you are at energetically and may create different results than before. Use this as an opportunity to further connect with yourself and your intuition in this present moment (sign up for my free challenge to do this here). Above all, remember that just because something worked for you at one point, doesn’t mean it’s going to work for you today. Don’t beat yourself up over it, just turn inward and ask your soul what the next best action is for who you are today.
Reason #3: People want a formula (but there isn’t one) – If you’re anything like me and my clients, you love yourself a step-by-step formula. The self-help industry reflects this. You can see aisles of books and thousands of “how-to” articles that put things into simple formulas. Unfortunately, life is more complicated than a formula. We all have a unique energetic make-up that often requires us to be our own authority and create our own customized plan. That’s why it’s so important to tap into your own intuition to see what your soul needs! We’ll be doing this during Vitality’s free 5-day challenge this week. We’d love to have you and help you get clear on how to connect with your intuition so you can rely on your own guidance to figure out how to achieve the goals of your soul.
I hope these three reasons why there’s so much contradictory how-to advice out there helped you. I’d love to help you on your journey to connecting with your intuition for free. Sign up here if you are interested in joining the Vitality community for this round of The Vitality Challenge :)
