One of the universal problems that is faced by women every day in their business and their lives is the guilt they feel around the fulfillment of their desires. So many women experience guilt because they have had it firmly implanted that it is selfish or unrealistic or both. Desire contains some important life-affirming and essential qualities for the successful execution of a business or a vocation. Asking yourself if you’ve allowed yourself to claim your desires can bring a mixed response if you’ve been depriving yourself.
The fulfillment of desire is not the same as being greedy as it is a natural reward for right action, or action that is aligned with your highest purpose. It is an act of self-love to accept fair payment for your services, to treat yourself to a massage or to take time out from a busy schedule. Your ability to align your life purpose with actions that bring reward and abundant remuneration is a skill very few succeed at. Is it possible that the high failure rate is because so many women don’t feel worthy of receiving the goodness life has to offer.
In the fabulous book The Big Leap Gay Hendricks talks about the upper limit problem many people have. The upper limit problem means that every time things appear to be getting better many people will self-sabotage. They simply cannot accept that life could be a cultivation and fulfillment of desire, abundance and beauty.
