Maybe you are working to lose weight, searching for your soul mate, managing a difficult job, trying to get a book published, practicing to learn a new skill, trying to carve a niche for yourself, or trying to stick to a resolution.
When you started out, you were all worked up and raring to go. But there are often moments when our spirits fall and it feels like we are getting nowhere with all the work we’re putting in. These are dangerous times, since they can influence us to call it quits, even if success is just round the bend.
The same things that got us all excited and frothing at the leash can start to seem like a burden if we don’t meet success somewhere soonish along the way.
How about we try EFT tapping to see if we can pull ourselves out of such despair?
EFT tapping set up
Even though I’m feeling stunted and held back, I wish I could blow away all the obstacles and rise out of this quagmire. I’m disappointed enough to shake up things a bit.
Even though I’m trying to do my best, but obviously my best is not good enough, even so I’m open to learning newer ways of doing things that will attract success.
Even though I should have tasted more success by now, what if I could use this disappointment to whet my appetite for greater success?
Even though a part of me is not comfortable with the idea of success, I wish I could release this hesitation and forge ahead with confidence and enthusiasm.
