I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

you find yourself facing obstacles that appear to be blocking you from your
goals, it is important to try not to get discouraged. It can be easy to feel STUCK or that LIFE is creating circumstances preventing you from getting what you
want. And while it is easy to look at everyone and everything outside of
ourselves for the problem, perhaps even wanting to "get rid" of the
person, object, or circumstance we may feel is blocking us, sometimes the best
course of action to take may be to look inside ourselves first. It is amazing
how often we can get in our own way without even being aware that we are doing
so. Even though we truly want to succeed, there are many reasons why we may
sometimes block our own efforts. It may be that we are afraid to succeed, so we
subconsciously create circumstances to keep ourselves stuck. Or it may even be
that we are afraid that we will succeed, so we block ourselves by making the
achievement of our goals more difficult than they really are. We may even
approach our goals in a way that keeps creating the same unsuccessful results. If
you believe that you've been standing in your own way, you may want to take a
piece of paper and record how you've done so. Write down the choices you've
made that have hindered your efforts and the fears that may have prompted you
to make these decisions.  Take note of any thoughts and feelings that
arise. It is important to be gentle and compassionate during this process. Try
not to blame yourself for getting in your own way. Remember the choices we make
always are there to serve us, until it is time to let them go. When you are
finished, throw the paper away while setting an intention that you are getting
rid of any obstacles you've created to block yourself. You can then let
yourself start again with a clean slate. Doubts and fears are going to be
natural, but with this new awareness, you should be able to prevent yourself
from subconsciously thwarting yourself. Besides, now that you've decided to get
out of your own way, the part of you that has always wanted to succeed can now
do so.
