You merely took a detour. The explanation that follows will help you understand every word used in that sentence and why.
The scenario is you decide to take a road trip in a car with a particular destination in mind. Now as you travel on the designated road, you may encounter certain, and often many, detours along the way. The detours are designed to allow you to reach your destination, but they help you avoid the ongoing construction. The construction is designed to cause that road to become better, and most likely, more efficient.
You are the car. Merely, means that it was not the end of the world but a temporary delay. Detour means that it will provide you with another way to get there. You always do arrive, so be easy on yourself.

Now you just have to do it. Stare at that sentence for a while. As you do so, you will hear many different voices, and you will then decide to which to listen. You will feel and experience many different emotions, and you will decide which to hold on to, depending on where you want to go in your life.
That sentence can cause you to experience tremendous fear or a sense of anxiety, for now, you know nothing is standing in the way of what you want to accomplish. Now you know what it feels like to be an inventor or creator of anything. When you are in what could be thought of as the genesis stage of anything you desire to do, there is no assurance it will turn out how you thought, but you know you must continue trying. Now just do it, and make it fun.

All the events of your life occur at the perfect time, and they only wait for you to figure that out. That sentence was meant to bring to your awareness a statement made by you yesterday where you questioned why it took so long for a result you desired to show up or become manifest. If this particular event or result had come any earlier, you would have missed the significance of that occurrence.
Now because it did show up when it did, you were able to gain the information or wisdom it was attempting to impart to you. The reason this particular result did not reveal itself to you sooner was that you were not ready to receive it. Now become ready, and next time it will not take so long.

While it does feel wonderful for you to receive proof that something you believed, something you thought, or something you trusted came to light and proved your initial instincts, that is not the ultimate goal you desired to reach. This is a big one for you, and probably one of the biggest obstacles you have placed in your way. Your goal was to come to a place in your life where proof of anything was never required before you decided to believe in yourself.
You will never accomplish what you desired or make any meaningful contribution to yourself or the world, until you stop making proof a requirement, for it is not. Trust yourself, again.

Yes, you caused this as well. Now you will interpret that sentence based on what you are attempting to do in your life. If you are desiring to experience full empowerment, then you will own that statement and grab it with gusto, because you know that causes you to fully feel your power.
If you are interested in remaining stuck where you are in your life, you will ascribe that statement to something outside of yourself or to another, and you know when this is occurring because you are using blame to shift responsibility. You think that this tactic helps you, and it may temporarily, but it never causes you to experience empowerment.
You had an experience where you discovered something that displeased you, and you were tempted to blame another, but then decided to seek to know your involvement in its creation, and that is powerful.

You first, to me first. That is referring to the particular path you have chosen to take in your life. Many people do this, but it is helpful for you to understand the process.
When you first hear you first, it may conjure all manner of memories or ideas. You can think of being with childhood friends where those words either become a dare, a directive, or a request for an example that might serve as proof something could be accomplished.
Now as an adult those two words, when used by you, could indicate you have allowed yourself to be halted by fear, or that whatever is to be done, created, or accomplished, might be better left in the hands of someone else.
Then you progress enough in your life and remember your desire was to become more. You want to expand. You seek to contribute. You want to be authentic. And you now know for sure the only way to do this is to say and own, “me first.”.

Stop doing this, and you will become rich. First of all, understand that the word rich here is meant to refer to every aspect of you, including your mind, body, and spirit.
The number one thing you must stop doing is doubting yourself and who you are. The next thing you must stop doing is believing that you need any justification for what you do other than how it causes you to feel. That is such a big one for you. The other day you tipped the delivery guy and then wondered if that was appropriate or even necessary, regardless of the fact that you felt good doing it. You could use your behavior in that example to examine everything that you do and notice how much you operate in that manner.
You know you are a good person, and you know that what you do that causes you to feel good will be good for everyone else, so just do that. We wanted you to feel good.

Experiential. Please study the definition of that word for that is precisely how you desired your physical life experience to operate. You knew that the only manner in which you might fully experience the empowerment you wanted was to allow yourself certain experiences. When you think of it as allowing, you also understand that there were many different challenges and difficulties which exist, that while not unique to you, they are the ones you developed and wanted to overcome.
It is one thing to understand things intellectually, but it is another thing to come to wisdom and knowledge as a result of experience. All of this then was not then pointless or meaningless because you still have yet to use it all to affect further your life, which will touch others.

Holding conflicting feelings is indeed “normal.” That sentence is meant to point out the times where you become vividly aware that you are holding conflicting feels about something, and then question yourself or even your own sanity.
You will come to know that you never do anything in your life that you would consider being somewhat forward movement, progression, or accomplishment without the experience of conflicting feelings. Those moments may be small or short in their existence, but they are always there.
If you take a mundane experience and apply it to every aspect of your life, you will gain understanding. Your two favorite television shows air at the same time, and you can only view one. You now have to choose. You feel sad about giving up one but excited about gaining the other. You do this with everything. Embrace the conflicting feelings and make the choice you know is necessary, but also leading to your desired destination.

The conditions that exist in your life now are never a determining factor in terms of whether or not you decide to accomplish what you desired. You may initially reject that sentence or feel that it felt a bit harsh, and that was intentional.
It was meant to point out to you that often times you will allow the conditions that exist in your life to turn into distractions, which you then conveniently turn into excuses.
The good news is, however, once you begin to recognize this and become willing to remain conscious of when you are tempted to do this, you can turn your distraction into motivation, and then that becomes something you use for your benefit. Make this a fun process. Look at something you think is the obstacle or distraction in front of you, and decide to jump over it.
