Your Ego is Screwing You Over!

Do you know the difference between the messages from your ego and those from your soul?

Try this…

The next time something happens when you need to make an instant decision…

Take note – what’s your instant reaction and then what does your head chime in and say?

Your instant reaction is your soul, the guidance to who you truly are and the path that will keep you happy, healthy, in great
shape, with great relationships and create a life you feel REALLY great about…

The chatter in your head that says, ‘Yeah, but…’ – that’s your ego…

Your ego isn’t real…

It reacts to previous experience and self limiting beliefs you’ve been subconsciously programmed with over time…

Your ego will play you like a fiddle using your fears and self doubt to keep you locked away in your comfort zone…

It will make you think it’s real…

It will make you believe it’s you…

But it’s really an imposter…

Living in your brain…

That doesn’t even exist…

I have a rule at my yoga classes that there’s no admission once we begin…

Late entry disrupts the class and I respect the people who have thought enough of themselves and of me to be there on
time…

But there was a new guy on reception last night who wasn’t aware of this rule…

So, he let two people through…

I don’t care what the class is…no one should be late…but anyhoo…

I always play a song leading up to the start of the class and I start the class when this song finishes…

It went a minute or two over last night and these two people came in right at the end of the song…

I reminded them of what time the class starts but I invited them in as we were just about the start…

And then I heard…

‘I just have to get a mat…’

That was the moment when my soul kicked in with it’s message and my ego tried to alleviate the situation…

The hair stood up on the back of my neck…

My soul said, ‘There’s no time to get a mat. We are starting. You either join the class without a mat or you leave.’

My ego said, ‘They need a mat. Be nice. Let them get a mat. You don’t want to upset them.’

You will always get what you tolerate…

And your choices will always upset someone…

If I didn’t upset the person who was late, I would be upsetting someone who arrived on time, who expect the class to start
on time and who value their time by expecting the class to run for the hour and expect it to finish on time…

Then there’s the person who would be annoyed that this person was late but felt sympathy for them because they didn’t
have a mat…

Every single person in that room had their own reaction to this person being late PLUS their own reaction to my reaction
AND it would all be based purely on their beliefs…

But, most importantly…I would be letting myself down if I didn’t go with what I truly felt deep down inside…

So, I went with the fact that I value my time, my expertise and I respect my clients who do the same…

I followed my soul…

I said, ‘There’s no time to get a mat. We are starting. You either join the class without a mat or you don’t do the class.’

Was this person happy about it?

Of course not…

But if I had followed my ego and allowed them to go and get a mat, we would have started ten minutes late…

Everyone else who had respected themselves and everyone else, would have been pushed aside for someone who wasn’t
organised…

If I had followed my ego I would also have been setting up the energy that it’s ok to be late…

One minute turns into two and eventually people will be rocking up five and ten minutes late….

They stayed and did the class. One of the other participants gave them their mat…

You can tell a lot about people and why their health and relationships are the way they are simply by watching whether or not
they put the needs of others above their own…

You will always get what you tolerate…

It’s these types of moments that will define your life…

Are you a people pleaser, i.e. an ego follower, or are do you listen to your soul?

Random observation – people pleasers suffer more with illness than people who listen to their soul and put their needs
first…

Listening to your soul and putting your needs first doesn’t make you selfish and uncaring…

It means you care more than most and you want the best for others…

The difference is that you’re coming from a place of seeing their light and inner strength rather than sympathising with
them…

PLUS your cup needs to be full before you can fully help anyone else…

Another random observation – if you’re a people pleaser because you don’t want to upset anyone…

You’re going to upset someone…

And the person you’re letting down is you…

You’re choosing to live your life on someone else’s terms instead of your own…

Your soul will always guide you in the right direction…

Will some people be upset if you follow your soul?

Of course! But that’s simply because you’re not reacting the way THEY want you to…

Will some people dislike you if you follow your soul?

Of course! But that’s simply because you’re not doing things the way THEY want you to…

Will some people really like you if you follow your soul?

Hell YES! And these are the people you want around because they respect you, they are confident within themselves and
they will allow you to be YOU…

If you TRULY want to change your life…

The next time you find yourself in a situation where you need to make a decision…

Follow your soul…even if it scares you…

The people who get upset aren’t your people…

If you TRULY want to change your life you need to surround yourself with your people…

And the only way to do that…

Is to BE YOU…

Follow your soul…
