How many times a day do you let the word “should” stop you from doing something that you want to do? I’ve lost count of the number of times a client has said to me, during a wardrobe clutter session “I’ve been told I shouldn’t wear that”.
Having everyone else’s “should’s” and “shouldn’t’s” chattering away inside your head is a sure-fire way to end up feeling tired and uninspired. Take it from someone that’s been there, it’s not a great place to be in. Letting everyone else’s “should’s” rule my life, contributed to my burn out.
The Word ‘SHOULD’
Sets unrealistic expectations, obligations & sense of duty
Decreases the desire to do things
Disempowers the person it is said to
Doesn’t provide the space for people to make their own decisions
Prevents people from accepting reality
Instead of motivating to achieve, it makes the person feel as though they are not good enough

You can repel ‘SHOULD’ from your Universe
Trusting your own instincts
Being happy in your own skin
Knowing what is important to you
Removing the shoulder’s from your universe
When talking to others; offer information and suggestions rather than stating that they should do something. Then, it is up to them to decide what they do with your suggestion.
