.Cocoon December newsletter: You are not a mistake. You are light

Who are you?

We believe we want to succeed because we are entrepreneurs and leaders. That's what we are supposed to want. On a deeper level, some of us have forgotten that we think we must succeed because otherwise… our biggest fears might turn out to be true. What fears? The core beliefs that come from our inner child's wounds. I don't deserve love. I am bad. I am a disappointment. I am not needed. I am a mistake… Some examples of core wound beliefs. If I can succeed, then I can prove that I am not that belief. Right? Wrong. External success will not clear those beliefs. I invite you to go a level deeper during these holidays:

  1. Watch something that touches your feelings. For example, the movie "It's a wonderful life, 1946" or the ballet "Nutcracker."

  2. Let the emotions flow.

  3. Ask yourself - what's my core wound belief? Accept the feelings and thoughts that come.

  4. Look for the truth and ask - if I am not that (the core wound belief), then who am I? Get this question to sink in deep. Wait for the answer. It will be a word or a symbol.

  5. Once you get the answer, root yourself into it. Let it be the new lighthouse for your soul.

You might uncover that you are also... light. And your company is the beacon through which your light shines and creates. You don't need success to become who you already are. I am grateful to our team, mentors and clients for this year's journey and experiences. I remember the meetings and events we've had with warmth, and I am humbled and moved by the depth of human experiences we've witnessed this year. I wish you many blessings in 2022! Ansis, CEO of .Cocoon P.S. 8 last tickets remain for the next .Cocoon Training days. 30 founders and business leaders will start the journey out of their matrix early next year. Will you be there?
