I bet you didn’t know the power of I won’t could actually set you on the path toward Empowering yourself, did you?
Let’s take a look as to why.
There are two ways to look at a situation that challenges you. It’s the “I can’t do it” or the “I won’t do it.”
The “I can’t” energy talks about OTHER external sources that prevent you from doing said task.
I can’t take on that big project because:
- I can’t do it because it doesn’t work.
- I can’t do it because it’s too hard.
- I can’t do it because other people always get in my way.
- I can’t do it because ( fill in your own blank.)
This energy causes you to point fingers and find excuses as to why you feel you can’t do something.
My friends… when someone else or something else is ‘keeping you from doing or accomplishing something” that immerses you in the vibrations of the Victim.
Thus, you will always draw to you circumstances that will reinforce this belief.
Victim = Disempowerment
Now let’s look at the “I Won’t” energy.
At first you say this sounds defiant, “like you’re not even going to try, well that’s the victim too.”
…but is it?
When you place the two side by side in your thoughts “I can’t” vs. “I won’t” you are being asked a very different question.
Is the challenge of (name your challenged situation) an I can’t? Or is it an “I won’t?”
Hmmmmm….. you see if you come to the decision that underlying all your “I cant’s” is the real blocker of I won’t, then you have EMPOWERED yourself by taking responsibility for the REAL block that stands in the way of your goals…
…and your beliefs about such situation.
Now that you’ve recognized that your “I can’t” is really an “I won’t.”
Ask yourself these questions?
- Does this vibrational stance serve me?
- Am I willing to hold onto this “I won’t” energy?
- What are the benefits to keeping my “I won’t excuse?”
- What will happen if I actually changed my perception?
- Who and how is this affecting?
Once you ask yourself these questions, with courage and insight, you will start to break up the “Victim” energy that you’ve been carrying around with your “I can’t” stance.
Plus, as you move through the “I won’t” energy and allow for all the repressed feelings around it to surface, you will find that the “I won’t energy” is usually accompanied by some other deep rooted feeling like:
- Low Self Esteem
- Unwilling to take responsibility for yourself
- Shame etc.
These are the true culprits that keep you stuck, sad, angry and depressed! Claiming your “I won’t” energy is possibly one of the keys to setting yourself free.
Once you can allow those feelings to Surface and Clear you will find that you will actually start feeling better, your thoughts are more clearer, and you are able to manage your mind a bit better as well.
We bring this this awareness to you for your consideration.
You don’t have DO anything about it; we’re just offering you a different set of glasses to look at it from.
The choice on what to do about it is… YOURS. 🙂
