We never quite know how life’s obstacles and challenges will change our course. We can never really predict either the tragedies in life or the greatnesses that come from them.

What if one choice, one question, can drastically change everything?

This TEDx talk of Amy Purdy, Gold Medalist and entrepreneur who lost her legs at age 19; and is truly an example of inspiration on the planet.

If my life were a book…and I was the author…how would I want the story to go? -Amy Purdy

Do you know that you are here to bring something to this world that would change it for the greater? And maybe in ways you’ve never even imagined yet?

What if your limitations and challenges are gifts that ignite your imagination and inspire you to go further than you ever thought you could go?

Do you realize that most of us tend to function from the points of connection?

What is that? Well, what we do is taking a judgment about something we have, that is like somebody else’s judgment, and then we keep connecting to that person (or persons) based on that judgment. It can be our lover, family, friends, colleagues, neighbors…

We then identify those points of connection as what is valuable in our interactions with the world and to keep them in place, we have to keep going back to them.

How much of your energy right now is going back to the past to maintain all your points of connections to people?
How many points of connection do you have that is stopping you form the creation of your life and living?
How many points of connection do you have to what you call awareness and what awareness is that it actually isn’t?

So what else is possible? Would you be willing to instead function from something called the points of creation?

What is that? Well, it means leaving all the points of connections behind and instead continuously ask questions about how someone and something can contribute to you, and you to them, and from there create something new and greater for the future!

That, my friends, is a completely different ball-game….

Is now the time?

Evan Mercer was born deaf and didn’t start speaking until age 5 – but he did not let any of that stop him from choosing greatness! Here are some pieces of advice from his high school valedictorian speech:

  • Commit to protect your dreams always.
  • Find your own impossible and bring it to it’s knees.
  • Understand that no one can hold you down.
  • Make the choice to never stop moving forward.

 

What would you like to leave to the world? If you were to write your own eulogy, what would it say?

Here’s a 6 minute audio clip from a recent Energetic Synthesis of Being class in Denver about giving it your all.

Please don’t ever give up. Give it your all. You do, and our world changes.

Never-never-never-give-up

 

 

 

It all started when 19-year-old Boyan Slat asked a question, “Why can’t we clean this up?”

He was referring to the millions of tons of plastic waste in the world’s oceans.

When everyone else was presenting clean-up projects that cost billions and would take thousands of years, Boyan looked at the problem from a completely different place and came up with a revolutionary solution.

He introduced a new way of thinking and the point of view that we’re doing this – now.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them, Einstein once said. Boyan would most likely agree.

What could you change in your life and in the world, just by changing the way you think about them?

Your point of view creates your reality. Reality does not create your point of view.

What else is possible? :-)

AlienHave you ever felt like you don’t fit in?

Or that you don’t matter?

Believe me, I’ve had days like those!

Here is a audio practice that may help you remember that you’re actually not alone

 

The Universe has your back.  Every energy that is the consciousness on the planet is here to support you.

You, my friend, are more important than you have ever been willing to even imagine.

What if you are exactly the difference this world requires?

What if you were willing to know that? Right now?

Dan Gilbert gives a TedTalk on the phenomenon of how we change throughout our lifetime and how we tend to underestimate the amount of change we will make in the future. He calls for the “end of history illusion,” where we somehow imagine that the person we are right now is the person we’ll be for the rest of time.

Hint: that’s not the case!

“Human beings are works in progress that mistakenly think they’re finished.. The person you are right now is as transient, as fleeting and as temporary as all the people you’ve ever been. The one constant in our life is change.

What would it be like to acknowledge that we create our future selves with every choice we make?
