Hacking This Reality

August 29, 2016 — 3 Comments

You may have heard the term ‘hacking’ come up recently. Whether it’s computer-hacking, bio-hacking, life-hacking, it seems to be around in a lot of conversations.

So, what is hacking?…

I heard one of my favorite descriptions as I watched the TED talk below with teenager Logan LaPlante, as he described hackers as “innovators – people who challenge and change the systems to make them work different and to make them work better.”

Have you ever wanted to ‘hack’ your life? Hack this reality? Find a way to just make it work better?

This reality basically tells us that if we grow up, go to school, find a job and get married, then we’ll be happy. Yet nothing in this reality is about creating, supporting and choosing that happiness.

We’re often so focused on everything we are doing in life, and looking to that to make it better. What if it’s less about doing and more about being?

As Logan mentions in his talk, all kids get asked ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ And us adults expect an answer like ‘a doctor’, ‘a chemist’ or some other job. But what if life wasn’t about doing, what if it’s more about being? And about being happy?

Watch the video below as Logan talks about how to be happy and healthy and how “having the hacker mindset can change the world”.

Most kids truly are just asking to be happy, healthy, not bullied and loved for who they are. What if that were the priority of this reality?

What can you BE, choose, do and create to hack this reality and change the systems into what you know is possible?

I recently had a google hangout with a brilliant teenager from Delhi, India about many of the topics kids and teenagers are looking at today – from leadership, to happiness, to bullying, to how to be you no matter what is going on around you.

You can watch the replay of our talk below for more tools and inspiration for knowing it IS possible to be different and to hack this reality!

What if you didn’t have to be at the effect of this reality anymore? What if you could now choose to affect this reality and change it completely? What else could possible in your life if you truly chose to be you?

Thank you for YOU and for being willing to have something different!

Until next time my friends,

Kid Embarks on a Mission

September 17, 2015 — 6 Comments

What if, no matter what the circumstances of your life have been up to this point, you can choose to create beyond them?

What if limitation is just a lie? And what if when we stop identifying ourselves by our story, we can create the magic and possibilities in this world that we are all capable of?

When I watched this video of Jaden, an orphan and remarkable 6 year old little boy, embarking on a mission to make other people smile, I was reminded of our incredible capacity for kindness and caring. I was also reminded of our ability to choose beyond limitation and the seeming miracles that get created when we are just being us.

Despite having lost both of his parents, Jaden was tired of seeing people unhappy in this world. So he made a plan, and set off on an adventure to make more people smile with absolutely no expectations.

Watch the video HERE and see the sheer joy created in so many people’s worlds by his phenomenal generosity of spirit.

What capacity and potency do you have, just by being you, that you’ve been refusing to acknowledge?

What limitation have you bought as real, that if you chose beyond it, you could create something totally different in your life?

Is now the time to embark on your adventure? What happiness may await you on the other side?

And what if you, being you, are the gift, the possibility, and the change this world requires?

Until next time beautifuls,

Have you ever looked up at the sky or down at the earth and been in awe of this magical, beautiful planet?

Have you ever wondered about the meaning of life? Or the universe? Or the phenomenance of being alive?

So often we look to others for answers. For someone else to explain to us how things work and how we should be in the world.

What if that was one of the greatest limitations we’ve bought in to? What if we come in to this world just knowing and being aware of everything and everyone?

What I’d like to ask you my friends is…

What if you were willing to know that you know?

What if you didn’t have to think or figure anything out? What if you already KNOW?

One of your greatest capacities as a being is your infinite ability to perceive, know, be, and receive. Notice that thinking isn’t one of them?

You may have been using that brilliant mind of yours over and over again, but if it could have figured everything out, wouldn’t it have done so already?!?

As I watched this video of this phenomenal 9 year old boy, I was reminded again of our capacity to KNOW.

So let me ask you my friend – What do you know, that you have been refusing to know, that if you were willing to know it, would change everything?

I wonder what we could create on this planet if we claimed, owned, and acknowledged that we know?

Until next time my friends 🙂

Is it time for an upgrade?

November 2, 2014 — 2 Comments

More and more people who function in ways science can’t explain are being born with “hyper-abilities” and being labeled with things like Autism, Aspergers and ADHD. Is it really true that we’d only have one single human species? What if there are different versions of human’s walking around? What if we’re living during a time of a great mutation?

What if we ALL have access super-human abilities…but it doesn’t look quite like what we would expect?

Check out this TEDx talk on “Will our kids be a different species?” where Juan Enriquez shows how technology is revealing evidence that suggests a rapid evolution of the brain and beyond is occurring on the planet right now.

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?

You Can’t Eat Beauty

What can be more beautiful than someone saying what really is?

Oscar Winner Lupita Nyong’o won the Essence Magazine Black Women In Hollywood Breakthrough Performance Award and in her speech she talks about what beauty really is with a clarity, brilliance and true caring that renders the audience speechless.

When you show up as the beauty you truly be, you’re changing the world.

 

The Recycled Orchestra

The “recycled orchestra” is an orchestra where the kids play instruments made out of trash. Check out the creativity…and the kindness!

“People realize that we shouldn’t throw away trash carelessly. We shouldn’t throw away people either.”

What else is possible when we are willing to see the contribution of everything around us?
