What if you had the opportunity to sit front row at your favorite band’s concert, or courtside at the big game, maybe even walk the field with your favorite team? I bet you would confidently say yes, because… why wouldn’t you?
If we look at why we want to be courtside or front row, it’s simple – THE EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE IS DIFFERENT. Where we sit directly affects our experience and involvement in entertainment. If you have ever been courtside for a basketball game, you know what I’m talking about.
So why in life do we often choose to sit in general admission or even worse, the free seats? We even pick seats with an obstructed view or so far up in the nosebleeds that we watch the game on the Jumbotron. Why do we so often settle for a diminished experience in our own lives? Some of those reasons might sound like this:
– Things just don’t work out for me
– I don’t deserve a better life
– Love never works out for me, I get hurt
– I’m unlovable
– I can’t make money and do what I love
– I can’t afford to make dreams a reality
– Making money is too hard
– I have no special strengths
– I don’t have enough experience
– Everyone else gets lucky
– It’s not my fault, it’s how I was raised
– What if I fail
– I’m not smart
– Worst of all… I am not enough
We tell ourselves stories like this all the time. We even go to great lengths to surround ourselves with toxic people who reinforce these ideas. My advice to overcome these disempowering thoughts and beliefs is simple:
Make the choice and come experience the emotion of sitting courtside. I promise you won’t ever want to sit anywhere else.
