Stop Being Lazy

February 26, 2014 — 1 Comment

Is Aimee Mullins disabled? Is she a model, a para-olympian or a double amputee?

Watch as she talks about how labels and categories can create limitations.

“I think our need to categorize comes from being lazy… There’s a lot more change that can be effected when treat each other as the individuals we are,” says Aimee.

What if we gave up the necessity of putting people in defined boxes of who they are and what they’re capable of? What would open up? What could change?

What if when a judgment came up, you just went…STOP! I am not going there — I am going to take the road less traveled, the un-defined path that could lead ANYWHERE!

What if going beyond all judgments is what would open up for a whole new world?

Your Body Knows

February 23, 2014 — 6 Comments

Let’s talk about bodies! Do you know that every molecule has consciousness?

Your body was created from consciousness as consciousness.  When you put molecules together in the form of a body they still have consciousness.

So your body is conscious…. Maybe even more conscious than you!

How is your body more conscious than you are?

  • It doesn’t take points of view.
  • It doesn’t do judgment.
  • It doesn’t do unkindness.
  • It never gives up its caring.
  • It doesn’t give up its gratitude.

If we can start to embrace that, asking yourself, “If my body were more conscious than I am, what information could I get from it? What change could I create from it? And what could I get out of it that I’m not currently able to?”

I think one of the biggest difficulties we get is we don’t honor the consciousness of this beautiful thing called our body.

It’s kind of like if you’ve ever been on a horse that was at a rental stable. All they do is they walk and they plod in a straight line. Nobody has really ever asked anything of them. They start to get dull.

Your body does the same thing. When you don’t acknowledge its consciousness, you invalidate the consciousness that it is. It can’t create change for you. It can’t do things to change.

You want to say hey body, “If you’re more conscious than I am, what is it that you can show me that I’m not asking of you?

What if today you started asking questions of your body? I wonder what would start to change?

And I wonder if that could be one of the keys to consciousness you’ve been missing?

PS. I recently talked about this on a Being You Book Club & Google Hangout. You can watch the replay here:

Imagine, for a moment, if you could live without limits, totally unbound from any restrictions or stopping points. Can you get a sense of what that be like? For you?

Did you ever see the movie Limitless? In it, a struggling and depressed writer gets access to a mysterious pill that enables him to access 100 percent of his brain capacities and tap into his full potential. Transforming him into a true wizard in anything he chooses…

Now, what if that “pill” is really you stepping into your infinite knowing?

What if functioning from awareness is what allows you to access your true superpowers?
What if total presence (is what takes you beyond what you call fear?
What if choice is more powerful than any conclusions of what you can or can not create?

What if LIMITLESS LIVING is possible right now — and what if consciousness is the key?

What if we are capable of way more than we’ve ever have been willing to know? What if we always have been? Our superpowers have been called different things in different times and what if today we’re ready to acknowledge who we truly be, in totality?

Here is an amazing exploration of that by Steven Kotler. It is called ‘The Rise of Superman’.

Now… Would you be willing to commit to the art of consciously choosing, the art of total presence, and to finding out, tenaciously, what is true for you and what LIMITLESS LIVING really is about?

Is 2014 the time to shut the auto-pilot of limitation off? Is now the time to be fully alive? Just asking…

PS. I have a telecall series about LIMITLESS LIVING starting on March 5… Interested? You can find out more here:

Just a word of awareness: if you choose this, nothing will ever be the same. Once you see that the emperor is naked, there is no turning back.

Every chance I get, I ask people this question … “What if you, truly being you, are the gift, the change and the possibility this world requires?” I ask it because I KNOW, that when enough of us have the courage to BE who we truly are, our world will change.

So, is now the time? Are you willing to be you and change the world? And, what is it that you already ARE that you haven’t acknowledged? For me, 2014 is about awakening that level of being on the planet…where everything exists and nothing is judged…including you.

And it’s not about ME, it’s about US. Together my friends, WE can change the world. You’re invited to join me in exploring the change that is possible when you’re willing to truly BE YOU!

We’ve created a special, 4-part Google Hangout series called “Being You Changing the World – Book Club”. It’s based on the book that was originally published in 2011, and since then has been translated and published in Swedish, Estonian, Spanish, Italian and in the Spring of 2014 ….German!

Wanna join us? Just go here to sign up, it is free!

Looking forward to having you online!

Your Elusive Creative Genius

February 10, 2014 — 3 Comments

What would you choose if you knew you could not fail?

What if creativity and suffering is not inherently linked?

What if success is not a death sentence for creativity?

Would you be willing to consider a different point of view?

If so…watch this funny and brilliant Ted X presentation by “Eat, Pray, Love” Author Elizabeth Gilbert.

What if your job, my friend, is just…to SHOW UP?

One of the keys to truly have the joy of being you, is to stop judging what’s right about you and what’s wrong about you. What it takes is the willingness to be different: different than the people around you, different than you were yesterday, different than what everybody else considers is normal, average, real and the same as everyone else.

Here’s an amazing short film, created by Dove, inspiring people to redefine beauty by being themselves and embracing their difference.

What if there’s nothing wrong with you or your body?

What would it be like if you took the “wrongness” out of everything you’re judging yourself for? Including how different you are from everyone else?

Are you willing to be that different?
