Archives For be different

Are you one of those people that is interested in LOTS of different things?  Maybe you’re like me and bright, shiny new things make you happy? 🙂

Have you ever jumped in the deep end of something new and found that you can swim quite well?  But then maybe later (often pretty quickly), you get bored. It’s not challenging anymore. It’s not fun.  You’re ready to move on, yet you make yourself wrong for not being able to commit, not sticking with something, and not finding your ‘purpose’ in life.

What if you didn’t have to make yourself wrong anymore? What if this ‘wrongness’ is actually a strongness?

In our culture, we’ve been told that you should feel like a failure if you don’t find your purpose – a jack of all trades and master of none.  This idea – that you have to find your destiny and your one true calling, and if you don’t figure it out, you have somehow failed or are terribly wrong…does that make you feel light or heavy?

What’s true always makes you feel lighter.  A lie always makes you feel heavier.

I have a question for you my friends – what if you are a master of all trades and a jack of none? What if you’re more brilliant and gifted than you’ve ever acknowledged? Does that make you feel lighter or heavier?

What if you didn’t have to choose just one thing? What if you didn’t have to limit your menu of choice at all?

What if instead, one of your greatest gifts, was the capacity to learn new things, to adapt, and to be able to choose anything and everything you would like to?

As I watched this amazing TED Talk about ‘multipotentialites’ (a great term created by Emilie Wapnick), I was reminded once again of the brilliance that each of us has by continuing to choose, seek, and explore more of what is possible.

Welcome to the world of infinite possibilities my friends!

Hey my beautiful brothers and sisters,

Please know there is hope.
There is always hope.
Never give up, never give in and never quit.

You are far too valuable to the world.

15 years ago, I made a choice to stay and it was the greatest choice I could have ever made.

The tools and the help are available to change everything.

You are not alone.

What if you are way, way greater than you’ve decided you are?

What if who you be right now is just the starting point of an adventure of what you can create yourself as?

What I’ve noticed is that the normal, average and real is really just a mask that most people learned to hide behind. And when someone let’s the mask fall, and becomes real and authentic, there is this huge mutual sigh of relief from everyone around. Suddenly everyone breathes easier and becomes more ALIVE — all from that one person dropping the mask.

The strange thing is that WE ALL KNOW THIS.

All through our lives, we try to peek behind other’s masks, to see who they really are. We often fall in love with just a small, tiny glimps of who someone truly is. The movies we adore, the stories that touch us the deepest, they are all about people showing up as the greatness they truly be. Something — circumstances, crisis, death, war, catastrophe — pushes them beyond the box of the normal they bought as real, and as their barriers fall, they SOAR.

We’re touched since we know this to be true, in ourselves. We actually know we are so much more than what we decided we are.

What if you let your mask fall now? What if you don’t need be pushed off the cliff?What could you receive? What could you be? What could you inspire in the world?

And please know, this is not hard work. It is actually way easier than keeping the mask on!

You, truly being you, has a smile to it. The soft smile of the lightness of being.

PS – Are you ready to be everything you are with no apology? Watch the replay below (in English and French!) of a recent Being You, Changing the World Book Club Google Hangout, 

 

When you live in and with a reality that is the direct anti-thesis of you as a being, at certain point you get really, really angry. Ever notice?

What if what you feel as “anger” is actually the power and potency required to create dynamic change?

What do you do with it? Well, next time you feel angry, instead of holding on and maintaining the anger, you can ask these two questions:

“Is this anger or is this the demand for change?”

and…

“What can I be or do that will allow this to change?”

The President of the United States, Barack Obama, recently chose to be and do something different with his “anger” … and it’s one of the best examples I’ve seen that illustrates what is truly possible when you use your potency and demand for change to create something greater in the world!

 

Freedom Beyond the Normal

December 16, 2014 — 3 Comments

All our lives we keep trying to fit in with people we think are valuable.

But what if what that really means is that you spend all your energy on trying to change you to fit in with other people that have no caring for anyone other than themselves?

Sure, that is what most of us have been taught is valuable by this reality.

And is that what YOU truly desire?

Come along to my yard in Houston; let’s look at this for a couple of minutes?

If you didn’t have to be normal, average, real and the same as everyone else anymore, what difference could you create, here and now?

What if being the difference you truly be is what is required for you to step into a caring that goes way beyond what you’ve ever thought possible?

For you.

For the people around you.

For the Earth.

For all of us.

Just saying…

What if the key to creating your reality, is to create it differently than everyone else around you? What if that key difference is choosing what makes you happy?

If you’re reading this, chances are … you ARE different. What if embracing your difference is what would allow you to create beyond this reality…to create a life and a world that you would love to live in?

If not now, when? How different are you willing to be?

Here’s an article we’ve found on EliteDaily.com with 10 Things That People Who Love Their Lives Are Doing Differently

#8 They see the world as their playhouse and their mind as the conductor.

They don’t believe there is a single way that the world is — a single reality that exists. Instead, they believe themselves to be the originators of their reality.

They believe they have full control over how they interpret what they perceive. They see the world the way they choose to see it because they understand the power such a skill has. We all live in a reality of our own construction. Some of us just construct our realities better than others.

Are you willing to be the creator of your reality? The conductor of your life? Are you willing to be different enough … to be happy?  It’s just a choice!
