Be Willing to be Awesome

Lots of people, young and old, don’t step into their awesomeness due to fear of being disliked, made fun of, being called names etc.  I understand how it feels as I’ve spent my life stepping outside the box of norm and having folks feel an obligation to point out to me exactly what was wrong with me.. in their opinion of course. I don’t know that anyone has ever done anything awesome without a few of those nay sayers showing up to tell them why they can’t or shouldn’t do it and why it just will not work.  It’s just how most humans react to someone who is stepping outside the tribal comfort zone.   Now you want more than you’ve got and you are starting to see that everything you have is in the box of normal.  It makes sense that in order to get more than what you already have you have to move outside the space you are already in and do, think, say, embrace something else.  You take those first few steps and BAM! someone shows up to tell you Stop! Don’t do that! It can’t be done!  What do you do?

It’s easy to stay stuck where you are, it’s known and in a way it’s comfortable to you.  You yearn for more, but it’s spooky when you think about what could happen if you quit that job, move out of the relationship, sale that home to start over.  Your awesome isn’t in the known place.. it’s in the next actions, experiences and interactions you make real.  What if you step into your awesome and 1 person ridicules you but 100 applaud and are grateful for your inspiration?

To get you started practicing being outside the box in your awesomeness begin letting go of stuff crammed in the corners and closets of your home.  That’s right, just move through your space and start clearing out what isn’t working for you anymore.  As you clear space notice how you feel with the now empty space.  Do you feel an urge to hurry and fill it up again?  What do you want in that space?  Can you wait for exactly what you want to be there rather than rushing to just fill it with something, anything?

Make an empty space on a book shelf or table in your home.  Place nothing there.  Let it be your “sacred space” for exactly what you want to experience next.  Honor it by giving thanks for what fills it, the potentially of Source.  Hold in your mind’s eye exactly what you want to experience next, let it know there is space for it in your life. 

Always keep that space available for your newest experiences.  Continue clearing out your physical home and your mind / body from litter.  Old thoughts, patterns, feelings that you’ve been stuck in for years can be released and a new experience had.  Notice the discomfort and the fear.  Call it what it is and sit with it for a while.  Where did it come from, what is it connected to? 

Dedicate yourself to your awesomeness!  That’s right, be steadfast in your faithfulness to expressing how awesome you are.  Don’t wait around for others to tell you it’s ok to be awesome, go ahead and Be Awesome.  Take those steps, make those commitments to enjoying yourself fully.

What does success mean to you?

 

Success means different things to different folks.  For some it’s all about airplanes, big houses, expensive jewelry, eating out at top resturants or owning a huge corporation.  Some dream of getting a book in print and selling millions of copies, being a top top public speaker or winning a political election.

The important  question is, what does success mean to you?  That’s the only definitation that really matters.  It’s the only one that has power in your life.  Being happy doing what you enjoy is success.  Waking up each day excited about what the day will unfold is also success.  Taking care of home and family while enjoying the friendship of loving and supportive people is also success.

Sometimes people miss success because they are letting other people define it for them.  You get to decide what it means for you. 

Once you make up your mind what success looks like, feels like and acts like let your thoughts, your words and your actions take you there one joy filled moment at the time.

When you are open to your own desires rather than trying to do it someone else’s way the road is more exciting, satisfying and fun.  Ask yourself what do you really enjoy?  What do you do well?  What would you like to discover about yourself?  What talents would  you like to develop ? 

Those answers will help you determine what success means to you.  Once you get your answers let every moment be one success after another.

I’d love to hear what you define as success, so leave me a comment.
