Self-Improvement Is A Farce

For a long time now, I have seriously appreciated self-improvement books, courses, and materials. Sometimes I wonder if I single-handedly power this global economic industry… For example, I’m currently practicing how to improve my relationships (with friends, loved ones, money, myself) through clearing myself.

And then I had an Aha Moment. The kind that made me sit down with my disequilibrium while the world reset itself on its new axis.

Self-improvement is unnecessary.

Now, before you snort, shout, or delete (all forms of resistance that I myself went through), let me invite you to see the beauty in this, and in yourself:

There is nothing that needs improving. You are already enough.

Let me say that again. You. Are. Enough. Just as you are.

(And yes, I learned this from a self-help book! The Universe has a strong sense of humor.)

By all means, continue to devour the books, courses, materials, and practices. But do it from a place of expansion, not of fixing yourself.

There is nothing to fix.

You are enough.

There is nothing to fix. You are already enough. {Tweet this!}

Self-improvement, self-empowerment, self-help — it truly doesn’t matter what we call it. What matters is our state of being. Do we seek to fix ourselves, or do we seek to learn more about ourselves?

So in my case, am I learning to clear myself because I unknowingly think I’m lacking? Or, am I learning to clear myself because I’m opening up to a deeper awareness? Something to consider…

Now over to you:

What are you currently reading and/or practicing? Explore the ideas of how fixing vs. expanding might be at play here. Practice owning your Enough-ness. Share in the safe space of the comments, below. Your story not only empowers you, it also helps others. We want to hear you.

You are enough. Just as you are.

And while you will be a constant gatherer of experience and knowledge, your life is not only about that — it is about fulfillment, satisfaction, and joy. Your life is about the continuing expression of who you truly are.  –Abraham-Hicks, “Ask and It Is Given”

  1. Mmmmm…love this! Such potent medicine! I am currently reading Running With the Wolves, by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes. It is a perfectly fabulous extension of my current expansion. 💗 I love how you said, “There is nothing to fix, you are already enough.”
    YES. 💗
