HOW TO NOT GET SUCKED IN TO SOS – SHINY OBJECT SYNDROME
I’m going to try and keep this blog a little shorter today and straight to the point. There are 2 videos below that will help you dive a bit deeper into identifying the sneaky self sabotage and how to just F!cK it and do something your way anyway.
I posted on Instagram yesterday that Lions do not lose sleep over the opinions of sheep. But I know myself I have held back on so much, perhaps out of fear of judgement. We all experience this self doubt.
As a leader, whatever your title, whether you’re a parent or a CEO or a founder – it doesn’t really matter. The closer you get to elevating yourself and evolving into true alignment, it’s really interesting how much the insidious self-talk is just so clever at distracting you.
I call anything that stops you from investing in your own ideas, happiness and true north SOS – Shiny Object Syndrome.
- People, places and things that go “look over here, why would you do that, are you crazy, what about me – I need your attention”.
- These SOS moments usually come in the form of listening to, helping or building others up, not having the confidence to do what we really want, fear of making a big change or the risk of “losing what we know” when we get curious and take a step to the road less travelled but that we cannot ignore.
- Deflecting the attention away from our purpose work.
– No one can take your abundance away from you.
– No one can copy you
– Nobody wants to take you down
…….All of that is just insidious programming and fear that really isn’t reality. It is this basis of an outdated system internally and externally, that we’re used to operating in.
The antidote to sitting in stress, failure or feeling like you are not achieving anything, is to take action to do the next right thing and go towards happiness. Even if you don’t know exactly what that looks like.
Simplify it in 3 steps:
1) DO YOUR SHADOW WORK
So the saying goes – one finger pointing out three fingers pointing back at you and it’s so, so true. When we get triggered it gives us an incredible opportunity for growth. Be aware of triggers, tantrums and kick backs (when you get defensive) as these are your greatest opportunities for growth. Don’t ignore what holds you back – write these things down. The good, the bad and the ugly. Unveil the roadblocks, write them down (it diffuses their energy) and then follow your crazy ideas.
2) BE COURAGEOUS
Define what great looks like – write it down. See it, read it in plain ink and then IMAGINE what it would feel like if you had that. Taste it. Embody it. Allow yourself to soak it up. If you think it – INK IT.
3) BACK YOURSELF
See those blurts and fears and judgements in step one, nod at them and then leave them OUT of your decision making. If you feel these elements/roadblocks/handbrakes repeat themselves then put the list up somewhere you can see it and OWN the dark stuff so you are FULLY aware of it. Once we see the truth we have freedom to make a choice.
Please take action in your own life.
Every day you procrastinate, stay stuck or keep the disks spinning in the perceived “safe zone” you are delaying your true abundance.
It is crucial with all the tools available to us that we just press pause, understand the subconscious limiting behaviours we ALL possess, hear them but don’t LISTEN to them.
Don’t follow the instructions of your ego – as it is formed from pride, guilt, shame, blame or fear – instead give that voice a name (mine’s called Bob), acknowledge it’s noise – then GO and do it your way!
I encourage you during this time of complete unrest, in this world of complete division, of real
So as you head about your day – be aware of your shadow side:
– of the roadblocks (the mental prison not reality)
– of what’s triggering you (the people, places and things that show you what you need to look at and let go of)
…… and to not accept that as gospel, to not accept ego as truth and to not let that rule your decisions, but actually do the complete opposite.
You don’t need to be in a suit to be smart.
Choose your deeper path and purpose. Your heart lead consciousness knows the way. We need more than ever for you to be in your sovereign self.
So please step up, please acknowledge the little voices, own that shadow work, write it down. Really be honest because once you put it on paper, it loses its power. And then you can start to take action.
Be in your truth. The peace that comes with that is liberating.
