    Hi Allegra,

    thanks for sharing your insights. Settling for less is the worst thing we can do because we will never be able to motivate our subconscious mind. It knows immediately that we are underplaying and stops supporting us. Chances are it will sabotage us. A vicious circle of feeling sorry for ourselves and denying responsibility, as you note, starts.

    I am of a different opinion with regard to plan B. I don’t have one, I don’t want one and I don’t need one. I have one masterplan that is reviewed and adjusted regularly. The question is , who has a plan B for their marriage for example ? I don’t have one and I don’t ask “What if…?”

    I enjoyed this post, thanks again for sharing.

    Take care

    1. Good morning!
      Thanks for your feedback. I agree with your point about personal relationships and commitments. I was speaking more about business and professional back-up plans. However, I will say that even in relationships it’s ok to consider how you will live without the other person in your life.
      Be well, Allegra

    Feeling sorry for yourself holds so many people back. We definitely have to ‘get over’ that one.

    I agree with Oliver about Plan B. Now, maybe I need to alter my plan of attack, but there is no plan B for me.

    I buried my “I Can’t”. My only plan is for success. I may not get there in a straight line, and that’s OK.

    Thanks for your insight.

    Self sabotage is something I am all too good at! Great pointers here, Allegra… especially #1 and #3.

    In my experience, if you have a burning desire, an excellent plan, and a mastermind group of mentors who help you “plan, do, review, adjust”… you don’t need a back-up plan. You adjust Plan A so it’s even better.

    That’s what Napoleon Hill means by burning my bridges behind me. Now to apply that same principle to a few other areas of my life, and it will help clear the way so I can do my business even better!

      Hi Willena –
      The group of mentors is an important part of being able to review and adjust. Sometimes we are so close to what we want that we can’t see how to make small changes to keep moving toward the goal. I really must get to the Napoleon Hill book as soon as I finish the Purpose Driven Life. Have a POWERFUL week! Allegra

    Hi Allegra,

    Great information here. In the end knowing that we know everything we need to have a great life, and following that implicitly is the way to go. When Oprah visited Australia recently, she went on a harbour cruise with Russel Crowe, who told her some years ago she said to follow your hunches. He did, and ahs become an academy award winner! The answer to everything – trust yourself!!

      Hi John,
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Loved your story and the fact that sometimes the smallest things we say to people have a big impact. I wonder if Oprah even remembered saying that to Russell. Have a POWERFUL week! Allegra
