Over the years, I have witnessed the same thing over and over when it is time to shift and grow…there is one thing that is in the way for pretty much everyone I have helped. It is the lack of compassion you have toward your own Self. Yes, it is simple, but true. That is your biggest obstacle in your life.

Too often, we create a fixed idea of what our Self should be and each time we do not match that rigid identity. We shrink, contract and sometimes we spend too much time inward over analyzing everything.

First we need to let go of that fixed image about ourselves but still have that deep desire to expand, be more accepting, living more in the heart or whatever you would like to express and experience often in our life.

The people that get the most hyper and excited about working with me are often the people who struggle to commit. Their ideal image of themselves takes over and their engagement is like a fire cracker…explosive, beautiful and short.

If you want to go really far, be aware of your limitations and have compassion for what you may call your contradictions, your paradoxes and your faults. Own them and hold them; there are parts of your expression.

There is no world-class athlete that dismissed their own limitation. Gary Player knew as a golfer that he had to go the gym and be fit, way before the Tiger Wood trend, to compensate his short size in order to be a legendary golfer.

Your ambition without self-compassion will not nourish your soul. Do you want to experience and explore the gifts of self-compassion?Take a complimentary session with Tejpal.
