1 Strategy for Dealing with Envy

“Where do I want to channel my energy and attention next in creating something I desire in MY life?”

Ever experience a skosh of envy?

You’re sooo not alone.

Envy is a natural feeling as a part of our human design. When integrated in a healthy manner it propels us forward. It can be a driver toward goals and help us expand our capacity & potential– a big component of Self-leadership.

Envy is not to be ignored or repressed. It carries with it a powerfully protective function of wanting to keep you safe & connected to the structures and support you need to live & flourish. It offers up the opportunity for you to heal & restore.

The next time you find yourself coveting another gal’s accomplishments, outfit, attitude, bicep, promotion, furry friend, flexibility, groundedness or whatever … I want you to first embrace your real and oh-so understandable feelings.

Give your inner Baby Goddess a hug and say, “I get it! I get you. It’s okay to appreciate these things in another.”

Then… turn this “twinge of desire” mixed with a “dash of fear” into an empowering statement and say, “And I appreciate my Bad-ass Self too!”

Come on… Say it with me! “And I appreciate my Bad-ass Self too!”

Then, from a state of true appreciation for the Magical Being You Are, ask yourself,

“Where do I want to channel my energy and attention next in creating something I desire in MY life?”

Send me your answer when you’re done.
