Which came first? The chicken or the egg? This ancient philosophical question has evoked a lot of “head-scratching” for many, including philosophers like Aristotle, Plato and Darwin. It was Plato who said, “everything, before it appeared on earth, had first its being in spirit.”
It’s in the being that everything is created. This includes how other people can see, feel, detect and KNOW all ways of your being. And since like attracts like – you’ll find yourself surrounded by those who reflect all of your qualities, shortcomings and successes.
We don’t become awesome once people see that we’re awesome. That kind of waiting around for validation will never serve us in being the best versions of ourselves. People see our awesomeness when we shine our light and hold ourselves in that space. We attract what we ARE, not what we simply WANT.
If you want a life of excellence, BE excellent. If you want to date someone magnificent, BE a magnificent person. If you want a raise, BE an ethical worker with an unwavering essence of greatness. If you want to lead people, BE a leader. You cannot wait for the “right time” or “someday” to magically experience all that you desire.
The changes that you wish to see begin to happen the SECOND you decide that you’re worthy and enough. When you stop doubting yourself and you graciously accept the inner-knowing that you’re ALREADY AWESOME, it’ll begin to show up in your body, your face, your relationships and your life on a fundamental level. Every single thought that you have creates a domino effect that begins in every single cell of your body – and then it continues outward into The Uni-verse. There is no separation.
When you love Your Self, and PROCLAIM that you’re worthy of a life worth living, you’ll accept nothing less than AWESOME into your life. It’s non-negotiable, failure is NOT an option, and you get to enjoy life a whole lot more. It’s really not that difficult. Just make the mental shift. Decide, RIGHT NOW, that you’re AWESOME. And AMAZING. And ONE OF A KIND!
If you feel like you don’t “fit in” – it’s because you’re a leader. Leaders were never meant to blend in with the masses. Look at yourself in the mirror and say, out loud, that you’re EXCEPTIONAL. There is nothing wrong and everything right with you.
BE it. SEE it. GET it.
Love all that is you,
